    Try to put a drop of loctite at one end to lightly fix them in your prefered scale.

    I did have that idea, anything viscous will work, like bearing grease, petroleum jelly or even bee's wax

    So why didn't you use any of the options? I guess even earwax would work :p

    I had the idea as I was coaxing the last pin in straight and tightening the screws thinking "IF I ever take it apart again, I'll use..."

    This thread is a brilliant idea. It needs to be stickied.

    up close look at the dovetails of the Koenig Zenaida. instead of screws and standoffs to hold it together, these dovetails on either side of the frame interlock to form a backspacer and hold the knife together. there's a little lockbar with a detent peg and hole at the bottom to snap it all together so it doesn't swivel apart during use.

    So i wanted to take apart my lionsteel daghetta, to see if i could make it open with less resistance. Also one of the screws of the pocketclip broke off halfway and left a piece in the screwhole. The head just came of while screwing it back in about half a year ago :cry:. I wanted to take it out so i could use another screw.
    Unfortunately this is as far as i got, the liners are hold together with rivets on the inside ( also solid steel liners, this could weigh allot less).

    You probably can send it to LionSteel for repair. I did so with my TM1 when the back lock didn’t work properly.

    I've thought about it, but considering the cost and time of having it send to Italy and back. It's not really worth the trouble. I've already set my mind on looking for a new main edc knife ;)

    By the way, which scale version do you have?

    When I googled for it I liked the aluminum version the most but the carbon fiber/G10 version is looking interesting, too.

    What’s your local distributor for LionSteel? I was visiting Böker with StonePaw when I remembered they are a LionSteel distributor for Germany. I just gave it to them and they did the rest, including sending it back to me, for free.

    Thats good to know, I couldn't find a list on their website but i'll send lionsteel a message. thanks. I Might even hop over the border and post it in Germany if needed.

    I have the aluminum version, it looks very cool. And has good grip. Only thing is when it gets scratches or scuffs, and the coating is gone, you can see them very well. I think i would get the carbon version if i could choose again. I think the opera is very nice as well, it looks a bit like the daghetta. Lots of versions, including bone, wood and g10 handles.

    Well used aluminum handles can look cool, too.
    If you don't like the few scratches then you can hide them with a stonewash or better to say with a blackwash :)
