    CHRIS REEVE: Thumb- Numb- Zaan

    Lol muh knive don’t flick opun. It’z defictive. Give the majority of non knife people any thumb stud opener and what do they do. Push the blade open, then wrist flick it the rest of the way. That doesn’t mean it’s the action. It’s the manipulation of the knife they don't know. Definitely...

    which one is tougher?

    What the heck is this knife for? Butter?

    Are Kershaw speedsafes reliable?

    Disassembly pics?

    I took apart a benchmade mini infidel because it wasn’t firing correctly. Fixed it up and took pictures you can see on page 2 or 3. I should take apart my ultratech just to show on here but functionally it’s fine so I guess I’ll hold off.. for now

    Disassembly pics?

    thanks! It’s not the first socom I’ve taken apart but it’s never a ton of fun. So many pieces. they are retained in a plastic type material like the Southard (I’ve also taken one apart). Not my preferred material but it works alright.

    Folding knife made of a wrench
