Technique. Mine flips open very smooth
I didn't want bring out the "we're awesome card" but since that cat jumped out of the bag, we are indeed awesome
It's the only logical conclusion.
The 0630 does have a hefty detent, but I like that.
It sure won't accidentally open in my pocket.
I also like how the pivot can be tightened by gripping the nut with the nails of my thumb and forefinger; I've had folders loosen up while using them in the woods, and it was annoying if I didn't have a torx bit with me.
Yeah, there's the wave and that's it then. If this is the way it's supposed to work then they should take the thumb disk off the knife because there's no way to exert enough force on it to get it to open. It takes quite a bit of force to open it even with two hands.
Very true. I'm not advocating opening the knife if this will void the warranty, but in my case, I had a similar problem with my 620, essentially the same knife in the detent part. I solved the problem very easy: opened up the knife and polished the washers on a very used 2000+ wet sanding paper.While the OP might have been better advised to avoid the implication of a design flaw, it's entirely possible that he got a unit with an unusually strong detent. It happens. There isn't 100% uniformity, even from an excellent maker like ZT. I would send it to ZT and ask them to lighten up the detent a tad. My 0801 s110v was essentially unopenable until I sent it in. It came back perfect.
