Modern Slip Joints wrote:Based on the unused knives I've collected the most common cause for them not snapping into the full open position is that the blade fit between the bolsters is too tight. Opening and closing them ~ 1,000 times adding drops of oil during the process gives them a satisfying snap about half the time and improves the sap in the other half. However, the improved snap has to come at the price of accelerated wear. As delivered those knives have all of the spring pressure holding the blade open and the added friction from the blade being squeeze between the bolsters so they actually are safer from accidental closing than a knife with great snap.
