I didn't take it apart, if that's what you're getting at. I've given all the screws a tightening after I've gone on walks to be safe, and adjusted the pivot when play developed (without any negative or positive pressure put on the blade that happened).
Okay, my exact reason was I was tightening screws because they appeared be be a bit loose and the bit slipped. I already needed to send it in for some play with the caged ball bearing lock. NOTE: Other people had the same problems with it recently...
Does scratching G-10 (Which I've accidently done recently), scratching screws or anything of that nature void the warranty? I've been wanting a list of things that void a warranty that you could easily and unintentionally do for awhile.
This and what other stuff similar to that would avoid the warranty? It happens from being dropped, scrubbing against something when your walking... or whatever else. I've wanted to know this for awhile, I just never got around to asking.
