I just received my new Mini Skirmish and I love it. I do think the clip needs to be adjusted a little though. Does anyone know what tool you should use to disassemble a Mini Skirmish? Do you just use an allen wrench or does it need a special tool? I already tried all of my allen wrenches and none seem to fit.

Thats is a Torx driver or star key as I call it. Allan key wont fit and if it does it will most likely strip it. They sell them at your local hardware store so just bring your knife and see which one fits

Or you could buy the blue toolkit from Benchmade that comes with all the drivers for the various screws found in benchmades.

DONT buy that POS blue box...
Go to home depot, grab that Torx driver they have for like $6. They come with like 5 double ended bits. The clip screws are usuaully T-6 and the Pivot is T-10

I'll second a "NO" to the BlueBox.

CHEAP quality for the money.

I'm a Wiha tools fan myself.

What's the issues with the Blue Box kit? Not strong enough steel and rounds out?

I've heard complaints about the steel bits, but the worst part is the "handle" is the soft polyurethane box it comes in, which just can't handle much torque. One sticky screw, and you can ruin the kit.

If you own more than one knife, the Husky Torx Driver with four double-ended bits (got mine at Home Despot) is a sound investment. Benchmade uses mostly #6 and #10, but I've seen other knives that use all sorts of oddball sizes. The Husky is well made; mine has outlasted several individual bits I got from Sears, which all eventually started turning in the handles (CHEEEEEP!!!) :rolleyes:

You're absolutely right, the Benchmade blue box is pure crap!!! I've heard though that you can return broken ones under warranty, but I have not returned my (2 broken bits in each set) blue POS boxes yet, so YMMV.

The Sears ones are Craftsman, aren't they? I'm pretty sure you can return those ones, too, if they break.

I absolutely agree with your advice, the Husky is the way to go!
