Re: Bent tip

If the blade is carbon steel, I would anneal it a little before bending it bac.
Stainless, I would just bend it and hope it doesn't break. Bending, tapping-whatever it takes to get it straight.

Re: Hair Trigger

I'm always amused by customizer's claims that safeties were removed for a "clean look." They either can't replace the safeties or they are too lazy to. Either way, it's pretty much the mark of an amateur. I totally agree, and also suspect the use of "24K Gold Plated Screws" to replace the tradition...

Re: Hair Trigger

Merlin was a very close friend of mine. I actually taught him much of his knifemaking.
My statement stands.

Re: Hair Trigger

Take the handle off and see what (if anything) is impeding the button.
I would send the knife back and have it repaired.

Re: Hair Trigger

Drilling the hole deeper won't help.
You have a sear or possibly a button issue. The knife will have to be disassembled.
Is the blade very loose side to side?

Re: Indiana 9" Swinguards

Those knives came out well after 2000 with the bayonet blade.
Angelo Campolin Sr. (Grandpa) gave me one at a show. I believe the Campolins had them made.
