Does anyone know why the prevailing style of screws used for most knives is Torx, as opposed to Hex screws?
I understand why they don't generally use Phillips head screws -- they SUCK.
But I have less confidence in the resistance of Torx heads to being stripped than I have in the resistance of Hex heads. I think that ideally screw heads should have triangular slots, because it's hard to imagine that ever stripping, but I suppose that there may be manufacturing issues, I dunno. (Though it's hard to figure why they couldn't easily manufacture a three-sided screw slot if they can make a six-sided one.)
So what governs the decision of Spyderco to use Torx and not Hex?
