    torx screw question..

    Soo I have a couple knives that have wire clips and I guess I was thinking allen wrench/hex key wrench..but no those are not the same. I need torx screws to remove and change these clips. Anyone know where I can get a good/cheap ish set at(online or store)? I only need whatever sizes the ukpk, dodo and (probly sometime soon delica 4) use. size 8 i think?

    Any input appreciated! thanks

    Home Depot sells a small set under the Husky brand name contains a handle and four double ended bits that cover all the sized found on Spyderco and most other knives. Model number is HD-74502-T and it's in their "Tool Crib" area. Lowes sells one that's identical except for name and color. IIRC, their brand is Kobalt. Either one costs about $6-$7.

    If you do not have a Home Depot or Lowes just go to an auto parts store and get a small set of torx drivers.

    I bought that exact one, the bits store in the handle so they don't get lost and the sizes cover all of my knives.

    alright thanks guys!
    and yeah we have both those stores round here so all is well.
    also Ive heard before that you need two bits to take apart one knife or clip..one for each side of it. Is this true?

    Thanks

    You don't need two bits, one will work fine. I think most of them are #6, at least they are on my knives.

    i also own the husky HD-74502 W which has t4, 5,6,7,8,9,10 and 15

    works great.

    two bits does aid in taking apart the ukpk but you can use the the proper size to unscrew and the next size down to hold the other side from turning.
