hey neeve nice vid! i LOVE the design its perfect! but the designer is such a c word and liar that i refuse to buy one! keep it up tho.

I love the design of the SMF and SNG, like the SNG size better. 4-5 years ago, a kid working in a knife shop was selling his own SNG cheap. It had bad lock stick and if I remember right the lock geometry looked off. He had trouble with even contacting Strider but finally sent it to be fixed. Got it back 6 (?) weeks later with no change. That made me leery of forking up the money for one. Plus, I hate the idea of chasing around these hard to find knives. The Chinese (Reate, WE etc) seen to do a better job with frame locks them US made.

For a custom knife it should never leave without being centered. And thats just one bad thing about this knife. Civivi quality jmo.

1. The hole is for a lanyard. It's a known issue but Mick has made it clear it won't be changed. I'm not a lanyard user so it doesn't bother me. Most people that use a lanyard put it through only one hole.
2. The knife was initially designed for the MARSOC Det 1 detachment in the early days of the Iraq War. The clip is not meant to be deep as there's no need to conceal a knife in combat, and Mick designed it to be easy to grab.
3. The coating is either black oxide or the natural black color that occurs from heat treat (depends on steel type) that has been blasted away to make the stripes, that's why there is a little bit of friction in the pivot. As you use the knife it will smooth out over time.
4. The sound you are hearing when closing isn't the washers, it's probably the detent ball rubbing on the blade.
5. You voided the warranty on the knife you polished the washers on. Messing with the pivot components at all will void the warranty. Strider will still fix the issues if you need warranty type work, but it won't be for free IF the issue is pivot related/caused by modification.

This was a good review ! Striders are usually sold out every where , it seems loaded with issues for the price better off with a CRK ! Totally convinced after this ☺
