    Anyone ever dissassemble their Dragonfly?

    I'm wanting to go ahead and stone wash my Dfly blade, since this H1 scratches SO easily. I'm not so much worried about getting it apart, but getting it back together. Is the back spring a PITA to get back into place?

    I've never disassembled a D'fly but I did disassemble the FRN Manbug to get the ZDP blade out of it and put it in my G-10 handle. The FRN knife went back together so much easier than I expected it amazed me. Since the D'fly is bigger I bet it may be a bit easier. The thing I was really afraid of was getting both washers on opposite sides of the tang lined up to get the pivot pin in. This proved to be not such a big deal. Not being able to take the handle apart was the only different thing than the other knives I've gutted. It was ok though. Good luck.

    The back spring is not EVEN a problem.

    If you've ever done the Delica/Endura/Stretch, it's the same thing, only the scales/handle are one piece. You won't have any problems D.

    Sounds simple enough. There aren't even washers on the inside to deal with so that's even easier.

    I agree, the back spring isn't too much of an issue especially with the one-piece handles.
