Hey guys, I did the spring mod (where it gets repositioned in it's slot), but I noticed that the opposite end got really close to the blade when closed. I didn't like this, so I snipped a piece off that end (circled in red) like 1-2 mm. Do you think it was OK to do this? Knife seems to function fine. Hopefully, it doesn't mess anything up in the long run.
To be clear: I am just guessing, no tech person or something ! :
I don´t know if it can "mess up anything on the long run", but really don´t think so... as long as you stick with the mod, that is!
Perhaps you could run into problems if you´d choose to reposition the spring into its original position some day though.
And I seem to recall another thread about that mod, where the poster was saying that the end of the spring gets rather close to the edge indeed, but would not touch it at all, unless one would "squeeze" the knife together in the closed position.
For others who plan on doing the mod: Beforehand I´d really recommend trying to break the knife/the lock in, maybe for a longer period than you´re used to, in my experience it WILL eventually!
