Aluminum Grey Bugout
I purchased the Bugout with very high hopes but was unfortunately let down pretty hard. The knife function came very stiff and sounded dry. I lubricated it and that didnt help much. I loosened the Pivot screws and that still did not help. I then loosened the screws that are mounted on either side of the blade stop bar and that finally did it. If you tighten this screw or the pivot even a HAIR past snug, the knife barely functions. If you squeeze the knife firmly while you use the axis lock, it is enough pressure to stop the buttery smooth function I finally got after a LOT of tweaking and questioning why I just spent 210 dollars on this knife. However, after I did dial it in just right I decided to take it with me on the daily grind and I have to admit I was THEN impressed by its usefulness. It is a great size knife, even with the aluminum handle it is CRAZY light weight, almost feels impossible to be so light. The action is BRASS WASHERS and not ball bearings so this is why the blade pinches when too tight.
All in all, a great knife that just really needs some TLC upon arrival to get it dialed in just right for you.
The M390 Blade is great. The aluminum body is fantastic. The ergonomics are awesome. This knife NEEDS bearings because it is only a matter of time before those screws work themselves loose, locktite or not. The screws have to be loosened to the point where there is almost NO pressure on the mechanism or it will not function one handed. I feel that ball bearings would eliminate this issue while adding a negligible amount of weight.
