Maintenance Tips

  • All of our products require a T10 torx driver for disassembly and arrive thread locked. The thread locker may cause the pivots to freely spin during disassembly, preventing you from removing the screws. To counter this, squeeze the handles tightly together as you turn your torx driver. For a more detailed tutorial on how to fix spinning pivots, read our blog post.
  • Extended use may result in loose screws and additional handle play. You can reduce handle play and prevent your screws from falling out by reapplying thread locker (we recommend Loctite 243) to the threads of each screw. Always reapply thread locker every time you disassemble.
  • Lubricant is essential to maintaining smooth action. Apply a very small amount of lubricating oil to the top of each washer whenever the handles are not swinging freely or if you hear any squeaking. Disassembly is not required when applying lubricant.
  • If your handles are not swinging freely even after lubrication, follow these steps. First, remove the screw on your stiff handle. Next, hold the stiff handle in one hand while holding the other handle and blade together in the other hand. Make sure that your palms are facing down and your thumbs are close to the pivot area. Then, with low to moderate force, push and pull to open up the channel until the handle swings freely. You can find more details on how to fix your stiff handle on our blog post.
