Well considering the MXG pivot was causing the knife blade to bind, it had to be disassembled a few times. Ended up sanding the shaft on the female pivot with a dremel to get the knife blade to actually flip in a normal fashion.
I definitely prefer a torx based pivot to a slotted one. It’s much easier to scratch/damage a slotted one IMO. Even with using the proper size screwdriver it shows wear after a few times taking it off and on.....really not a fan.
its weird, at first the blade went on fine, then within 15 minutes or so got tight and wouldn’t function properly. I’ve since sanded it down ever so slightly and seems to have fixed the problem. Hopefully it stays that way.
I just received the full MXG Gear hardware set for my 0801ti. The pivot is a problem. The tolerances must be very tight, the blade is very gritty, binds up, wont free fall, heck....wont close at all unless i push it closed. Ive thought about sanding/polishing the shaft on the pivot down and see...
