    I was searching through the archives and saw some of the Dogbite build offs! I wish USA knife maker still sold these knives/ kits. I have been wanting one for a while and I just bought one! I’m waiting for it to arrive. It’s a DB3. Are the small pivots on these a problem, do the bigger pivots on the 3.1 make a huge difference? Are there any negatives I should I should know about that I can mod to make better? I see USA KM still has blade blanks. I might commission a reblade be made for, it maybe with the bigger pivots/bushings.
    I look forward to hearing your feedback and I’m excited to finally add one of these to my meager collection.

    bigger pivots is supposed to help eliminate play and a bigger torx is needed for less stripping and potentially damaging the hardware

    sweet db3. i always liked how comfortable they are. a little short but still a great flipper. thats cool that someone took out the top barrels. i never did that to mine but thought it needed it.

    Thanks for your input. I really wanted the 3.1 but this came up and I impulsively bought it. No regrets lol. I have heard people compare it to an alpha beast, but shorter. The pivots on the DB3 remind me of the V1 AB pivots. I want to get full length spacers for it and anodize it purple or toxic.

    Ah man! So could you tell a difference between the two as far as how they flip and tolerance?
