My previous knife for the last few years was the gimmicky Gerber Remix. That knife is aggravatingly stiff to open, so when I decided recently to get a new EDC knife I researched some smooth openers. This knife's design appealed to me. I ordered this color scheme and the OLBW. Initial handling made it clear what all the frame- lock and pocket- clip fuss was about; the lock does add difficulty to the action, but not so much that I was regretful I chose this knife. The clip wouldn't even go onto the soft- shell Wranglers I wear to work, but I quickly removed the clip and spread it's gap a little with pliers and reinstalled; perfect. As I handled the knife while I drove to work I did feel a twinge of disappointment about the action. It took maybe 20 attempts to get the knife to fully open with one swipe of the flicker, and even then it was grainy movement and very unsatisfying. I used a little wrist flick to encourage the full open flick. I'm a CNC machinist by trade, so I naturally began to visualize things that would cause this, like the KVT bearings I'd seen in a pic of a disassembled Bareknuckle. The hardened steel ball bearings are seated in a brass? race?... and I imagined the steel bearings would need repetition to wear the necessary clearance into the brass... and BAM! Mid- thought it broke in and now it's smooth as butter. I've been flicking this thing all evening. The OLBW one has an awful detent, though. That one will need to be disassembled and maybe filed a bit. It's nearly impossible to initiate opening, but moves very smooth after the detent is cleared. Overall, I'm very glad I chose the Bareknuckle, but there are a couple small things I'd prefer were different. Get one!
