Split back spring UKPK

Postby spydutch » Tue Jun 12, 2018 3:20 am

Greetings you all, :)

Long time since I posted and hope everybody is doing OK.
I recently bought a UKPK in CTS BD1N.
The knife is perfect however after reading a few stories of broken back spring I'm a little concerned.
Should I take this into consideration and keep the knife for light use?
My typical cutting tasks are opening packages, cutting up some card board and cutting/whittling the occasional branch/stick for my girlfriends dog to play with.
Being in the Netherlands it's too expensive forme to send a kinfe in for warranty.
Hope ou can help me out on this.
Thanks much in advance and take care ;)

Warranty should be with your retailer, you shouldn't have to send it back to the US.

Hi SpyDutch,

I wouldn't worry about it. We've had a few springs break, very few, but we're always testing and improving them. The type of usage won't affect the spring.
