Got click?
on: August 05, 2022, 05:09:49 PM
Recently I picked up a Recruit.  I like the simplicity and clean lines. This thing has the most amazing snap to it! The main blade closes with a sort of soul-cleansing CLICK! that is very, very gratifying, kind of like watching a hungry  large dog eat its dinner. I wonder if the lack of back tools improves the snap?  It does seem like my Bantam and all the alox SAKs I have with no back tools tend to have a prodigious snap to them.

My experience seems to support that theory. It has been my experience that my Bantams, Pioneers, and Farmer X have pretty satisfying snap. The Farmer X's scissors, in particular, are much snappier than those on 91mm equivalents. I don't know about its saw, as I managed to bend it just enough that I have to finagle it back into place.

One to four layers of SAK is (usually) best for me.

Fortunately I have just the thing for you....

Thanks! I'll get to that eventually. For now, the bend is minor and more annoying than anything else. The scratches the saw acquired (presumably from going through the nasty plaster one finds in old houses) annoy me more than the bend.

What factor does the springs come into the tension and snap of the tools?

Well as I understand it the tools have cams (protrusions) such that as you rotate the tool around its pin, the protrusion pushes against the spring which supplies energy to assist closing.  The back tools make the spring situation a bit more complicated and the effective spring length may not be as long...
