Despite oil and lots of break in I can't get a free blade movement without side to side play. If you remove the pocket clip you have to put a screw back in because it holds one of the stand offs in place. Only you can't because without the clip the screw is too long. I wrote to knives and tools to voice my concerns. Never got a reply. I took the blade out, yes I have voided the warranty I know, to find the lock side liner is badly damaged at the pivot. Several deep dents. I guess that's why I can't get the blade to rotate freely without backing the screw off so much you get play. Several sharp corners on the g10 that really dig in your hand. Won't buy again really want to love this knife but too many faults for the price. UPDATE...contacted Kizer direct. Wow what customer service. They have been amazing. They sent a replacement knife and it's so much better! None of the issues that I had initially. Buy with confidence as Kizer support is amazing.
