That is not typical at all...do you have a precision torx bit set? You can pick them up at a local hardware store for under $10 usually. I know that that is not ideal but the pivot screw or secondary screw just next to the pivot may need a minor adjustment. If you send it in to Spyderco they will definitely fix it for you, but if you have the tools at home you could easily adjust it yourself most likely...BentleyCole wrote: ↑Wed Apr 01, 2020 10:42 amHi all,
I received my first spyderco knife today, the para3 lw. Out of the box this knife was extremely tough to open and close. I have read plenty of reviews that this knife should be buttery smooth opening, but struggling to get it open from my experience. Is this normal or should I return the knife?
Thank you all in advance for the help.
