I recently got a hold of a Woodsman model SAK and it's just the best and has the most useful set of features in a SAK for my needs. However, I've noticed that the red plastic is separating from the metal around the tweezers. I notice about half a millimeter gap when the tweezers are in the slot (big enough to see light through the opposite side). It seems as if the tweezers are pushing the red plastic up from the metal.

I was wondering how the red plastic is attached to the metal frame in the first place and if I can do something to fix the gap. If I remove the tweezers, the gap remains but is obviously smaller (1/4 of a millimeter).

Apart from this, the fit and finish on the SAK is perfect.

-- TIA, SAK perfectionist. :)
 
Welcome to the forums.

The scales are held by friction over extensions of the rivets, you should be able to pry them off gently and put then back on adding some epoxy to hold them, be careful not to get any epoxy in the tweezers slot.

A search for "SAK scales" on the forums should bring up plenty of information on the subject.

Exactly. The same thing happened to my Cybertool 34. I noticed a little gap and when I lifted the scale it came off quite easily. I used a few drops of super glue, put the scale back on and pressed hard. Never had any trouble with the scale again.
