 :cheers: Thanks, MTMatt! Better looking than when I clip-n-hammer for temporary builds using the damaged bushings!

Excellent work kamakiri  :cheers: :like:

Thanks, Wspeed! I always put more effort with builds that may be permanent. And get even pickier with restorations. I left one of the pins about 0.12 mm longer than I wanted and would have taken it off for a restoration, but okay for a user like this.

:cheers:  :like: :tu:

Thanks, CsB! I hope there's still entertainment value in there!  :cheers:

Nice limited edition  :like: :tu:
I thought you might notice that, Ray!  :cheers:  ;)

Gotta quickly figure out what I'm going to do with knife time this afternoon...might just be cleaning some of the recent arrivals.  :dunno:

I said I buy crap...sometimes it's not intentional.

Small blade in the listing only mentioned 'light scratches' and said nothing about the very pronounced BENT TIP  ::)

Mother Hamster Smurf it ALL:


a bit better:


Still too visible from the blade side:


Good enough to leave for now. At least it sits nowhere near the main blade now.


Rest of the knife and the edge on this blade was great so I didn't want to bother with a return or refund or pulling it apart to replace the blade. I have enough of those to do that I knew about when purchasing.  ::)

Just glad I didn't have any errant blows and ruin the factory edge. Still cuts nicely and separates news print just fine.

Yeah, not too bad and I've fixed worse but with some degradation of the cosmetics.  I'm more concerned with not marring the edge or sides on this one.  Making it straight might come at the expense of some surface dimpling.  I always try for the 'right' fix for the given condition.
