Ok. Need some help here. Can't get my Doctor Death apart. 5 minutes with the hair dryer blowing on the pivot screw full power. Screw is so hot I can barely hold my thumb on it and all I have is a destroyed penny!
Tried putting side tension and every other idea I read here. Now what? Thumbs are sore and knife is still together! Do I dare trying my mini torch? Don't want to hurt the knife.
Haven't tried anything yet. Still undecided on my next step. Don't want to make a mistake with a limited production knife.
It’s hard to put into words but the NeOn feels a little more “solid.” They’re both smooth but the NeOn feels a little more fluid - like you're just pushing the blade open rather than flipping it. The HatiOn feels like it has a little more snap to it upon opening.How does action of each compare?
Literally took your advice about the stove top, worked beautifully. Thanks. I did end up marring the screw a little. Oh well, I'm gonna use it anyway.I had the same problem with a Russian Dr. Death. I held one side of the pivot to the glass top of an electric stove, on high if I remember correctly. The trick is that once you've broken the adhesion of the thread locker no force is needed to loosen the pivot: more heat and less force.
