Well, my post was directed towards dat boi, because I thought it was him replying, not you. Also, I didn't even read his explanation >>35213172
, and I was almost spot on. Anyways, tac-force-bro-force, get a tube of blue loctite, add a few drops in the pivot screwhole, tighten as desired, and leave it for 24 hours. This will prevent the shock of opening it from inevitably loosening the pivot screw, and causing the knife to eventually fall apart. I've had plenty of cheap chinese knives, way before I bought a set of torx bits, and they came clean apart without any tool loosening whatsoever. I mean, it'd probably be better if you spent a few more dollars on a kershaw knife and did the same loctite method. But if it lasts and works for you so long, I guess the loctite will turn two years into more years.
