Falling apart!?

Great knife as far as looks and blade goes...I like liner locks if the design is done right...the handle material feels real good too. Here is the con side: this knife now is trying to fall apart on me the second time...I carry it daily and suddenly the pocket clip comes loose, then the liners try to seperate...I had to order a set of micro torx tools to re-tighten these micro screws...hopefully this time permanently fixed.
All in all a good classic blade with great feeling and it stays sharp too.

Great value, needs some tweaks

The Bonfire is in many ways an excellent knife. The FFG blade comes to a reasonably thin edge for the intended purpose, it's an excellent slicer with enough length to make it happen but still compact enough to pocket carry. The deep carry clip is recessed, unobtrusive and inconspicuous, my main concerns with a clip. A wire clip would be better, but this works well and better than many which are often too long or not recessed or obnoxious in hand. One complaint is that the clip is non-reversible.
The knife is comparable to the Buck 110 in size but is much lighter weight, though it could stand to lose a bit more through a skeletonized liner if nothing else. It deploys and unlocks more easily than the Buck, which is another major advantage, but it is also a weakness. The liner did not engage well when first purchased, so I took the knife apart (easy to do) and after reassembly it was better set to work into position with a few hard flips open.
My biggest gripes with the knife which led me to modify it were the poor clearances around the flipper and the lock-spring. This knife is a front-flipper - it cannot be reliably deployed from the top. But even from the front, pulling the flipper through ends up gouging your finger as the tang descends beneath the bolster as it rotates. The bolster corners must be ground away to provide proper clearance for your thumb/finger for deployment.
To unlock the knife, you must fit a finger into the gap between the liner and lock-spring but there is no clear opening on the liner side to ease access, something engineered into most liner locks but you will have to cut one yourself on this knife and I do recommend doing so, it greatly improves the usability of the knife.
Once you have made this modifications and reset the lock-engagement with the tang, the knife becomes a highly effective alternative to the 110, a pleasure to carry and use.
