i recently bought a Meadowlark 2 FRN plain here from Amazon Germany.
Though the opening was very scratchy and far from smooth (tried to fix it with oil/teflon spray, dissasembled the knife, cleaned it etc., didn't help. seemed to me that the material of the lockback hook was to soft so the amterial of the blade grinded it).
So i requested a new knife for replacement from Amazon, what they sent me.
Now I have both here in comparison and there are some obvious differents between these two knives. (The new one opens fine and smooth) First the axis screw is a T7 on the old vs T8 on the new. Then the spring for the lockback on the new one is shiny vs black/unpolished on the old one. Also the labeling on the blade is different in font and different darkness.
So Im asking myself if there are differnt versions of the Meadowlark 2 and/or differnt qualities of the used material?
