The pivot is not pinned, so it would also be possible to take the blade out entirely. I have never done this though so I can't say how difficult it would be to reassemble.
I do this on my Benchmades all the time so I don't have to fiddle with the axis lock! Sometimes can be a bit fiddly to get back together but it's usually not too bad.
Not possible on the manix LW.
The pivot on benchmades just slides out, and back in. The pivot on a manix is shouldered like in the pm2 so its wide in the center, and narrow shoulders fit into the sclaes/liners.
When i decided i was gonna swap a maxamet blade into the skeletonized liners from a sprint run i needed to pry the scales apart to get the blade and pivot out. I didnt break the FRN scales, but apparently many do when they go that route. I couldnt imagine doing the process in reverse.
Of course, i could have drilled the pins, but i had little to no interest in re-using the scales from the LW.
I did not know that. Same as a G10 manix or pm2 then. I haven't taken my Manix apart, I always just put a few drops of oil on the sides of the blade and scales and work it in.
