  I would have done as you did...but understand factory policy.

I get it. And I suppose it's my fault for not reading the warranty policy. And they don't know I'm an engineer with decades of experience  with knives (have made a few). But when I send a message offering to buy a broken part I don't want a full page lecture about the warranty. I guess I'm also a little miffed because it's a coil spring in a knife. I could have done this repair when I was 7. I mean one of the screws I removed voiding the warranty is the screw to switch the pocket clip, which I assume is something the owner can do.

And maybe I'm just using it as an excuse to spend $200 on a Benchmade. But it's a heads up on SOG's policy for the rest of  you.

I got the spring. I have to admit it's not the easiest build. I broke out my wife's electrician's set (turns me on too) to needlenose the spring into place. Fixed the knife, no big deal. But be aware if you have a problem, don't open it up to fix yourself. Through this process I've actually learned it's better to be dumb and ask questions than to be smart and fix things for myself.

Hell no. She runs Klein. It's a debate in the house because I'm going Felo. She terrifies me pulling panels and she'd happily illegally wire a house (true love). Once she starts pulling wires and I look like an idiot standing there she throws me the old construction joke, "don't let your skirt get in the way".

Her whole family is nothing but engineers, welders, iron workers, etc. I had to prove my ass as a farm kid with concrete experience to have a beer with that crew. On our last vacation I had to rebuild a pool pump with my father in law with no tools and we did it.

If our household can't do it, it doesn't need to be done.  8)

Ok...ok.  ;D ;D ;D
