Sage 5 fakes?

Postby Carlito555 » Wed Feb 07, 2018 9:53 am

Anyone ever hear of sage 5 being counterfeit? Before I throw the company where I got it under the bus, got a new sage 5 yesterday, tried usual disassemble/lube/light buff on the washers etc. The only screw I could get loose was the off clip side pivot and instead of seeing red or blue thread lock, it was white. No matter what I tried, I could not get any of the other screws to budge. Tried two diff torx and hair dryer trick....I will see how they handle my email and an exchange as a knife that I can't disassemble to maintain and service is no good.

I wouldn't be surprised if there are fakes out there, haven't really heard of any but who knows. You might try boiled water, that's my go to for years now on stuck screws.
