A friend gave me this Gerber folder a few years back. It has a bit of interesting history behind it. Said friend has done some work with a certain branch of the US Special Forces. I was told these knives had been issued to said group and have no reason to doubt that. My friend has worked in the defense industry in various capacities since the '80's.
The problem though is this. The titanium liner, either through wear or just faulty manufacture, no longer locks the blade. Someone has then tightened-up the pivot so as to provide some friction to keep the blade from easily unlocking. Something like a functioning two handed friction folder cum liner-lock slip joint.
It seems a shame that an interesting piece doesn't get used. I was given it with the idea that I might find a way to sort the lock, but I don't have the tools for the job, and it wouldn't be worth the cost paying someone to do it.
So, if anyone with the equipment to make-up another liner (stainless steel probably a better idea than titanium) wants the knife, it's theirs. I will pay the postage, so it won't cost anything. The only thing I would ask is that once the new owner gets the knife repaired, they post some pics up here to show everyone.
