Got home from dinner about 15 minutes before my wife (in 2 separate cars tonight) and had the brilliant idea of lighting up the garden table. Lasted all of about 6 minutes before I realized that 80 degree evenings and fire tables don’t pair all that well together.

My second revelation was that fire and knives (together) aren’t nearly as easy to photograph as some folks here have made it look.

And lastly....I’d have bet the farm that today was Friday.

Anyway, small Sebenza for my Thursday “that felt like Friday” evening carry....

Nina Klotzli very kindly replied to both my emails regarding the clip screws but really didn't provide useful information about the drivers needed. They really don't want owners taking apart their knives so they and have deliberately used (and loc-tited) unusual fasteners to discourage having re-assembled and poorly tuned knives in circulation that don't meet their standards. :rolleyes:. She said they employed (but didn't identify) more common screws with the SBG, apart from those for the clip. I quote--"I didnt know the Bristol head, but from what I can see on the internet, this is not the correct head. It really is a «Spline» with a 1/72 thread. We are using these because a lot of the American knife makers that my dad worked with used these. But the matching screw drivers are really hard to find, that is true." T tiguy7 , is there another type of Spline Head screw?

I like the knife, took it to work today, and made good use of it paring some notches and cleaning up biscuit-joiner slot tear-outs, but this thing with unnecessarily weird screws and the proprietary attitude is annoying.

I know what they're thinking....
Why are they removing a perfectly good clip?
Old school company that's been producing high quality cutlery for like 150 years probably has a point.
But if anyone with an SBG wants a couple of 1-72 clip screws after some ill advised experimentation shoot me a PM and I'll mail a couple, I have a dozen or so.
T-6 Torx bit, nothing special.

Non-Threatening Thursday. Crappy pic due to subpar lighting, deal with it.

I already have tomorrow's carry picked out, A Purvis Progeny V2 for CF Friday. I'll get a pic in the morning with my dad's (new to him) boat. It's nothing fancy, but fully set up for fishing. 1987 Lund, 18', 2008 Evinrude E-tec 40 hp tiller outboard. Bought from a recent widow. My dad sold his Ranger 10 years ago, but now that he has grandkids, and they are in a subdivision that have river rights, a new boat was required. It's been a long time since I was on a boat. Probably 5 years, so I'm excited, especially for my nephew's. I have fond memories of fishing the chain o'lakes with my dad as a little kid.

The clip screws on your photo look like they have TORX recesses. The main reason to be able to remove a clip is to be able to correct the tension if the clip gets sprung. Can you take a close up pic of the clip screw head?
