Its a stainless model, no scales. Also they don't sell scales, just some of the inner parts (that are sold together in the repair kits).Armalite Native wrote:I may be wrong here but it is possible Spyderco offers scale replacements as a kit for the delica or endura models. You would have to double check that though. Perhaps replacing the scales would remove the wiggle? If the pivot has bent (ie the knife dropped not on the FRN but on the back of the blade) you might be out of luck.
Hope it can be fixed.
Warranty info is printed on the inside of the box.TacticalEcto wrote:You are probably right.
But since they didn't have any warranty info on it i was wondering what i was working with.
So let me see if I have this right. You dropped your knife onto a hard surface, and it is somehow Spyderco's fault? Your first action, rather than contacting them is to jump on the internet, throw a tantrum and call the knife a piece of junk? Very mature. Very reasonable.TacticalEcto wrote:Just recently purchased my first spyderco knife, was Absolutely in love with it until about 3 hours ago... I have babied the knife since I owned it and 3 hours ago i dropped it off my thigh onto tile, We are talking about a static 2.5 foot fall onto slick tile. And now if you shake it, it just chatters with blade play in the open and closed position..
This is unacceptable? Its a brand new, never been dropped before, hunk of steel, and its going to go and break already? What should I do with it now?
I am quite confused here...
Is there a Warranty that will save me here? I did not receive any paperwork in the box the knife came from. I would love to say this is their fault here.
+1, couldn't have said it better myself.The Mentaculous wrote:Dude, you are seriously, seriously overreacting. Dropping any item with moving parts on a hard surface can knock parts loose. I don't care how expensive it is or who the manufacturer is. Would you have the same reaction if you dropped a $4k Rolex watch and it broke? No manufacturer's products can be immune to physics...If your knife were able to withstand impact on the pivot, the pivot tension would have to be so tight that you would surely complain about that and say it's a piece of junk because it's not smooth..
The same thing happened with my Military (a $150 knife if you didn't know), and I just took a while and tightened up the torx screws and it was fine. If I hadn't been able to fix it, I would have been upset...but I would have known that it's my fault. And I would have sent it into W&R and hoped for the best...not call it a "piece of junk" because I accidentally dropped it on a tile floor.
Since it's an SS model, you'll have to send it in to be tightened up..I guarantee that all it is is a loosened screw, and guess what--that has NOTHING to do with the build quality. Any item with moving parts needs spaces for those parts to move in. Jarring impacts can cause a sudden loosening of these spaces.
If it truly is a defect, they won't make you pay for shipping. However, the warranty does NOT protect against accidents or neglect...but maybe you should see how they handle it before you throw a fit and say you can't trust spyderco...as if other company's knives wouldn't get messed up from the same impact?? Give me a break dude.
Wait and see if it works out before you declare that the sky is falling and spyderco's are "junk"
Sorry, but your title is really inflammatory and you come off as a toddler who broke their toy and is having a tantrum. It's not spyderco's fault you smashed it on a hard surface, although I'm sure they'll be happy to take a look and probably fix it easily.
How 'bout you do a test and take you cheap knife, and drop it on the same surface, and see if it fairs better...
So here's what we learned:
if you want to be able to readjust you knife, don't get an SS model.
Be careful not to drop your knife on a hard surface if you can't readjust it.
Spyderco never claimed that their knives can withstand impacts with hard surfaces..
BTW I dropped my laptop on cement and now the screen's broken and it won't turn on! HP's are a piece of junk! I'm never buying one again! I have a warranty, but why should I send it in?
Also, never buy a Jeep! I drove mine into a tree at 30 MPH and the piece of junk totally fell apart!!
Problems came after you dropped it??This is unacceptable? Its a brand new, never been dropped before, hunk of steel, and its going to go and break already? What should I do with it now?
Careful dude, that stuff is basically the same in effect as Heroin. I got off oxycodone and hydrocodone a few years ago, and let me tell you, it's not easy. Seriously, take care and stay well.TacticalEcto wrote:Ill gladly deal with this issue solo. You win, I logged onto this site today to ask into more about the warranty info and how to contact them on this (since I had never flipped over the tray to find it although i had looked everywhere else.) and instead I did a hydrocodone rant. (Prescribed, I hate the stuff) so With Info I now have I'm great.
Thanks for everything (Including the flame by Yablabowitz)
