Please let me point out that we all understand that you hold a different opinion. What we don’t understand is why you don’t move on, having stated your views, instead of continuing to belabor opinions like “junk”, “substandard”, “pissed off”, “the plague”. We get it. At this point you are coming across like a toddler having a tantrum.Canazes9 wrote:We'll have to agree to disagree. The parts are junk. I don't have a knife to return. I think Spyderco is wrong for the way they've handled this issue from the beginning. Continuing to sell substandard knives at the same price and without disclosure as knives that have had the bearing issue corrected will result in pissed off dealers and customers avoiding Spyderco flippers like the plague.Evil D wrote:Those plastic bearings only hold the bearings together, they don't bear any load whatsoever.Daveho wrote:I don’t like the idea of cranking down the pivot and working the action, as I see it the plastic bearings cages could be damaged in doing so
Canazes9 you wanna talk trash and say they'll just send you junk parts again, just return the knife and move on. Your ****** attitude doesn't help this issue one bit.
As for my work around, it works. Nobody is forcing anyone to do it. These knives also work just fine with the dents and in time the washers will wear in exactly how I forced them to work in, my method just speeds up the process.
Take a time out. Please return when you can discuss in a more mature way.
