I promised myself, that I was not going to start collecting anything again, but I have been reading, and observing the variations of the Russlock, and their intended use, discovered the drop point type, and off we go again. In reading the questions, on how some of the demonstrators were able to get their Russlock's actions, so light and smooth, I could comment on how the smoothness could be achieved. Fine valve grinding compound, or light polishing compound could be applied to the blade at it's pivot point, and the blade opened and closed until it's action became very smooth. The heavy spring tension, is another problem entirely. I can see no solution to that problem, short of removing some of the strong spring tension, by actual springing the blade's tension, in reverse, and that would be a tricky job. I do not think that the demonstrators of knives with extremely smooth actions will be likely, to give up their secrets. I have purchased two new Russlock drop point knives, and will post pictures upon their arrival.
It's Mind Over Matter, If You Don't Mind, It Don't Matter
