The title of this thread is what the problem is. The words “should be “ is where I have a problem. If you want it to be a tool less take apart that’s fine but don’t make it a mandate. Millions of knife users have done very well with pinned non take apart knives for well over a century. I have take apart knives but I don’t make that a prerequisite. I’ve only taken one apart to remove a piece of cloth material that was in the pivot area that came from the manufacture. I have no plans to take it apart again. Compressed air, soap and water, oil is my go to remedy.
