In the last four months or so, here and on other forums there have been a Surplus of Spydie Lock Failure threads. All I got to say is wow! I've never had a Spydie come close to failure. What are these people doing to bring these situations about? I've heard of the spine-wack test...still not sure what it is. I've seen the fellers over at CS place their knives in a vice and stack weights on them.
In thirty years of cutting things I have never had a locking blade fail...
I had a Buck 110 knock-off fail when I was getting stabby with it, in my opinion I was abusing the blade and deserved what I got.
How many here can honestly say that -- without abusing the folding knife or its lock -- they've had a knife lock (or pivot point I suppose) fail on them.
For my own education please provide the knife model and the circumstances.
I'm not saying it doesn't happen. I'm just trying to understand HOW.
Thanks for your time.
