    My info was purely anecdotal evidence as well. Read it on Bladeforums years ago, I think it was a bad batch of springs (again, years ago). People fidgeting with their knives thousands of times a day...

    You're right, I missed that part! I'd buy this over any Benchmade Axis knife available right now. There is a mini version available now as well, unfortunately the handle scales look a bit misplaced...

    I think Hogue makes a better version of this knife than Benchmade, especially since this guy is full G-10 handle and 20CV steel. Incredible bargain!

    'Special' tool is a bit of a stretch. A regular pair of snap ring pliers will do the trick. Put a dab of thread locker on the retaining ring and the issue should not occur again.

    Yes, functionality is as you described. Benefit is that you crank down the tailcap and still have both momentary and constant on. Some people will say that inadvertently activating constant on...

    Yes, the o-rings do a reasonable job of taking up the slack. I just never could get used to it. I changed all my tailcaps over to McClicky switches, and in that process decided to install Thyrm...

    Have you ever guesstimated what a midtech Clinch Pick would cost if it were produced by let's say Spyderco in their CO factory out of S30V? I'm just curious! Thanks!

    The grip phenomenon on the M1 is very interesting. I'm glad to see that I am not the outlier.
    I recommend you bite the bullet now and just get a Bawidamann Muninn. Painfully expensive, but it truly...

    It wasn't so much the size of the knife, but rather the handle did not feel secure. It felt like my hand could slide forward towards the cutting edge unless really clinching down on the grip. I don't...

    Yes, the Ferrum Forge Lackey looks like an excellent knife. Shape and size seem perfect. I've had my eye on one for a while, but as you said, D2 steel is a bit of a letdown, even if the price is...
