Cheers mate! Brass makes a terrible spring though... as you would expect. I cleaned the joint earlier and I can already see a fresh coating of brass on the tang where it's just rubbed another layer off!  :ahhh

I don't know what the answer is to that  :think:

 :think: :think: :think:
So how about this, as brass can be porous how about making sure there's a good drop of mineral oil on/in the backspring in the hopes that it will wick out and lower the wear at the pivot?
Bugger me I'm full of ideas this evening   :woohoo:

Lump hammers are always good  :tu:

But it is a good looking knife how it is  :pok:
