Love the bone!
Thanks Glenn, you call the name of that tune also.
I don't think this knife had been used, if it had it wasn't more than a couple of times because it showed no sign of being used. Since it was a new knife I didn't examine it carefully to see how the blades sat in the pockets. When I started to put it back together the hook remover blade to hit the liner about half way between the bolsters! I hadn't noticed a bend in it before, but there it was big as life! Fortunately there's no need for the hook remover blade to be hardened so it was easy to straighten up.
When I finished it all up there wasn't much snap as you said. I blew it out with the air hose and then added Quick Release to the joints.
Now this fish knife has more snap than one would normally expect. That little tube is almost like a magic wand for snap, the more I use Quick Release the better I like it!
