The Man in the Arena

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

Detent Adjustment

I like a strong detent while others want it softer. I’ve noticed Reate has the knives come both ways. It’s random. They are mostly on the stiffer side but I’ve come across a few softer ones. Hopefully yours came the way you want it but if not, no worries, adjustment to your preference is easy.

1) Take the knife apart all the way. You’ll need T8 and T6 torx bits.

2) Make a mental note or take a picture of how far the spring lock face is bent over in relation to the frame.

3) To make a stronger detent press the bar from outside to in with your thumb. Go slowly and a little at a time. Check to see how it compares to where it was originally. One millimeter will mage a HUGE difference so don’t overdo it.

4) To make a weaker detent just go the opposite way, like you’re trying to straighten it. For this you will have to remove the steel lockbar insert first.

5) When reassembling do not over tighten the screws.
