Hypothesis For Swayback's Pocket Clip

Just got the Swayback in and was looking at the prominent pocket clip that everyone hates and after opening and closing it for a while I realized something. ZT's with a RIL are notorious for not opening smoothly if there is any pressure on the frame lock. The Swayback is no different. If one places ...

Re: Autonomy on the way!

I'd be interested in hearing your opinion on the centering. When I returned mine to BHQ the centering was just awful.

Re: Siren

I love virtually everything about the Siren except one thing: When gripped hard the back lock easily disengages and though this really doesn't affect function it is irritating since there is some blade movement. Does anyone else experience this? Theoretically if you stab into something with a hard g...

Re: New knife idea: Autonomy XL

Re: Blade Off-Center on Autonomy 2

Have you tried to fix it? [/quote] Yes I did after I reviewed your recommendation. It’s better but still off some. I appreciate your advice. I’m less irritated. Interestingly I can get it centered better by tightening the second screw closest to the deployment button but then I can’t activate the sa...

Re: Blade Off-Center on Autonomy 2

Both my Autonomy 2's have been off centered. In fact the second one I bought was through GP Knives and they inspected every model they had in stock and they were all off centered. The one they sent me was the best one and it is still way off centered. Doesn't affect functioning but it is sure irrita...

I've had no issues with my Advocate. It's getting smoother the more I use it.

Re: Anyone bought from blazinblades.com

I bought an Endura in Super Blue last week and it was a smooth transaction. I noticed the price went up about $50 the next time I looked at the site. Thought that was odd.
