    I replaced my broken omega springs on my Mini Freek with a .016" gauge guitar string. It now requires less force to pull back the lock bar and feels smoother. I'm curious if the guitar string will last longer than omega springs.

    Also, I first tried using small paper clips. They technically worked, but just didn't have the springiness to travel as far as the lock bar needs without having a slight amount of play.

    I bought some memory wire and a cheap set of jewelry pliers in a kit from Amazon so when the inevitable happens, I'm all set. Of course, I'll contact BM first to see if they will send me out omega springs (sending it south of the border is out of the question at this point) but I kind of hope they say no so I can start making my own.

    edit May 6 2019:
    The show side omega spring broke on my 943-2 Franken and I successfully replaced both springs. It took two times to get them right (I was in a hurry for a Dr appointment and was running late so they looked rather horrid) but when I got home I did another set that matched reasonably well to the originals. The action is stellar even though a little stiffer to push the lock (the wire is a touch thicker than the original stock wire).
    Time will tell when I need to do this again but with my other 8 BM's, I'm good for life.

    What's the story on that one? Who made those scales. They make for a great looking knife.

    Thanks! These are custom od micarta scales on a regular 550 in 154CM. The scales were done by Cuscadi in Germany.

    The current crop of BMKs. The Triage is on the Exchange, but I have an LNIB full-size Diamondwood Crooked River inbound, so I'll stay at an even two dozen.

    I had a bit of a problem. Haha. I’m sure more than 100 grips went through my possession. There’s 10-12 different blade steels represented in that above pic.

    Check out this gem; found a Benchmade Pikka in my glovebox from back in the day and been messing with it since. I wonder what BM would do if I sent it in for a pocket clip???
