Did you disconnect the battery when you replaced the sensor?

Like this one?
That, is honestly the only one in the series that I really wanted hahaha! I love my Nano, and the CF version just pushes all the right buttons. In the end, i settled for the Excelibur, the Lightweight, and the Gnome, which after receiving I honestly don't care for. The handle way too small, even with the included lanyard for my medium-sized hands. I would have preferred a trade off of more handle for slightly smaller blade length. And it doesn't really fit well at all in the sheath it came with. All around sad experience with that little guy.
I didn't like it so much, I guess I didn't even take any pics of it!

Yeah, I think I'd go for the smaller version, too, I don't really like/need anything bigger than a 3 1/2 " blade...
It's weird for the little guy though, most reviews I've read/watched do not like the smaller version as it's harder to flick open. Not as much leverage or purchase on the top of the blade spine to grab it. This initial impression is why I hesitated on grabbing one. Now i regret at least not trying it first and flipping it (ho ho HO) later.
Positron came while I was leaving my place today, I like it but am a bit mixed on the flipper nub and the area they cut for the liner lock access. Nub is too slick to get a purchase on without concentrating on it, and there is not enough clearance cut out on the presentation scale to access the liner lock easily. Kinda wanna remove some material and make it better.
And the detent ball is way too harsh imo. Sticks up too high, making me have to re-push down on the lock. A weird feeling I've never had with other knives...
She's a looker, though. Not certain if that's going to be saving grace to keep it yet. We'll see in a few days I guess.
I think you just have to break it in. I handled one at the local shop here and it was smooth as heck in both opening and closing. Perhaps some "goop" is affecting the detent ball...however, I was never interested in how fast a knife closed. I think it's a tight tolerance issue, so get to flippin' that one during a TV show or something.
IF you do mod it ala Adahn, do post pics!
Alrighty OSS (Old School Spyderbro) thanks again and
USUALLY, I break down any and all knives that I receive, new or not, and give them a thorough cleaning/once-over. Since I was on the way out the door already I had not gotten around to it yet on this guy. You're right though, a little break in time may be just all it needs. I did peek at the detent ball though, does look as if it's sitting really high in its place...
I was reading about that, too, but maybe with my S size hands that would be no problem
...not that I could afford any knife for the next half year ot so...
That's why I stick with the Chill for weekend edc and my Chinogorov Neon for workdays (it keeps the fine edge longer).
Put the ZT to good use on some yard work.
Been trying out this Ganzo griptilian clone I picked up for $15. Surprised with the quality! Haven't cut much but it's fun to flick around.
Please don't hate me, I can't afford a real griptilian right now

A Kershaw Freefall and a Kershaw Skyline at the moment. The Freefall is pretty much an everyday carry, and the other spot is an ever changing rotation spot. I have a large combo edge Benchmade Griptilian, but it is too expensive for what you get.
I like Case slip joints, Kershaw and SOG modern folders, and 3.5" to 5" fixed blades. I only carry a fixed blade when I can legally justify it, but fixed is the best way to go if you can.
There's no hate here mate. The whole point of edc is to make things work within your budget.
You'll get a genuine one day, we all need goals

Experience is a cruel teacher. It gives a test before presenting the lesson.
Been carrying this 25 yr old Gerber. Never failed me, and I've never lost it. (for long anyway)
