Well, gotta say overall I'm pretty disappointed given the price 😒
Out of the box, detent was so weak it would fail to deploy more times than not without an additional wrist flick at the end. And don't even ask about how easy it was to whip open.
Spent half the day today working on it off and on to get it close to something I'm happy with
Detent ball didn't fully reach the hole, was only engaging about 30% at most
To fix that I had to file down the liners to allow the stop pin to travel just a little further when it closes. I also beveled the leading edge of the lock bar, it's such a small detent ball, the bar was touching the side of the blade in the closed position.
But then i had another issue to deal with....despite the fact that the backspacer didn't even fully enclose one of the standoffs in their attempt to create clearance, i still had to file down a LOT of material to make room for the blade in its new properly closed position
At this point i can still cause it to fail to deploy if I try, shaking it open takes much more effort, but it's still doable.
Oh, and the the backspacer wasn't flush with the spine of the handle north of the middle screw, I'll need to fix that later.
Action is smoother now after the rebuild, shake shut.
But ANY attempt to loosen the pivot even the tiniest bit to improve it further instantly introduces a TON of blade play, moreso then any I've seen from a couple degrees of a turn......which, i suppose, is why the handle was put together with blue loctite, but the pivot was done with permanent, had to use a heat gun to break it loose.
All this work later, at the end of the day it's a nice looking knife, with a pretty awkward feeling handle, that i would've been happier at about $75 less.
