Is this normal, and needing worked in more?Really notice the handle slap with the hefty mongrel, will take some time to get used to it.

With this design the spring is under no pressure when the scissors are folded up, only when fully deployed. Another work around is after partially deployed, continue unfolding, pressing on the tip until in the locked position, spring will pop into place. Anyway, that is what worked for me... that is, when my Surge actually had Surge scissors As for the handle slap, that bugs the hell out of me on any of my tools. Nothing a few well placed shims won't fix.....~ evil ~
Yeah it is normal that the scissors need to be slightly open before they will lock into place. I will say that I am a former Surge owner

I will say that I am a former Surge owner I'm a new Surge user and I hold the Surge for less than one month before sent back for warrenty purpose. I faced the same issue at the scissors side.Have you check the land yard clip status. Mine can not fully deploy..
I'm a Surge user too

Scissors - slightly betterLanyard ring - same as beforeThey replace a display unit for me, although it is older than my new surge but I found thatthis replaced Surge has better quality. (less loosen) An the best part, I got an extra woodensaw + original packing box (yellow).
Was cutting some light stuff today when I felt the handle wiggling or something, and was wondering if anyone else has noticed this odd peculiarity. With your Surge closed, open the scissors (facing up).Then operate the scissor handle back and forth and see if your serrated blade moves back and forth in the handle.Mine seems to make the serrated blade move from the right side to the left when the scissors are clamped, then the blade moves back to the right when the scissors are reopened.Maybe mine's possessed, or it had a bent pivot joint, unsure. Thought I'd ask if anyone's notices this peculiarity on their Surge too.
How did you save your choking dog with a Surge? Poor ole fellow! Glad he is ok now!
I am also a Surge user and edc. No other model yet could kick it out of my no one favourite. Although I also like the ST300.
The one thing that would make this even closer to perfect would be replaceable wire cutters!

Did evil already do that? Do you know which thread that was? If they fit without too much evil doing I am so going to do that. Oh dear more favors to ask of Metropolicity...
