I promise, this is my last thread on the Microtech UTX-70. When you disassemble the UTX-70, this is what you'll see
Looking a little closer, I was trying to determine why my knife wouldn't retract. So, I looked closer: 2.jpg
I was really interested in that groove in the front locking piece:5.jpg
So I really took a look at it: 3.jpg
I flipped the locking piece over, and tried the flat side, I reversed it, etc. Nothing seems to work. It deploys the knife, but then locks. It seems the locking piece is "walking out", and jamming the spring slide, preventing it from retracting the blade.
Looking at the groove in the front locking piece, I can't help but wonder if the blade hasn't been making contact, and cutting the groove in the lock piece?
Naturally, Microtech's Customer Service is of no help, and the shop where I bought this (Not Your Moma's Knives), well...lets just say I don't do business with them anymore. They have lost a customer. Nuff said. If anyone knows the "secret" to making these run, or "if" they can be made to run, I sure am willing to learn. Thanks, and again, this is the last thread I'll do complaining about Microtech's quality control, customer Service, and general support. Thanks.
