Not afraid to dissassemble

Especially to help lube the pivot screws properly for ease of opening. But the tolerances are so tight with spacer shims (sometimes two per side) on either side of the blades that I find the job to be tedious at best. Would love to hear of any secrets in doing this? I did learn that using my gunsmith vice helps.

Last night I did my XM-18 and also my SOG FatBoy. The FatBoy was the most difficult one to re-assemble.

One of those instances where the more that are disassembled and reassembled comes the confidence. Knives generally aren't too complicated though I know some designs integrate a level of complexity for various reasons. Those can be tricky to get back together without a fixture to hold something.
