    I bought the g10 gemini off a member here for my wife. She likes it, but it doesn't flip worth beans. It only flips about halfway unless I give it a wrist flick. I took it apart, cleaned and lubed it, and it's not better. Any ideas how to make this thing flip better?

    My guess is you might have a weak detent. Can you shake the blade out of the handle with a sharp movement?

    No, the blade cannot be shak out, however, it takes almost no effort on the flipper tab to get it to snap partway open.

    Pivot isn't overtight either, if I compress the liner lock all the way, the blade swings freely.

    If I hold the knife straight up closed, tip at the 6 o'clock position and hit the flipper tab, the lde will open to the 9 or 10 position.
    So I need to disassemble and bend the liner to give the detent some additional tension?
