Dunno how I missed this from last week:

How does it work? Has the main spring been weakened somehow?
I don't believe I could open one of mine with just adding the stud.
The main spring on that 110 is just as solid as the day Buck packed it at the factory. The pivot isn't overy tight but I still can't "flick" it open and I have some fairly strong thumbs. I basically choke up ever so slightly on the frame and just push it open, it snaps at about 35 degrees and takes it the rest of the way.
As you can see, I have one on my 112/450 "mutie" as well.

I wish you would have attended a couple of my birthday parties.
That humble, worn little 10-dot is my favorite knife. If I had to pick just one to carry from now on, that'd be it.

The 1047 for some variety! Nice totes, big-H. Is that Winterbottom knife in the middle a muskrat? Love the bone on that bad boy.
I think I figured out why I keep having to hitch up my drawers today...
