You must use the correct size TORX bits( these vary from RUN to RUN ) when adjusting the TWIST. STRIPPED MEANS: The pivot head has been reamed out buy the wrong bit size or incorrect bit size. That is Stripped! If the whole Pivot spins that is not STRIPPED! If you strip with wrong size bit we are not responsible... There're methods for adjusting. These TWISTS are BRAND new and Stiff or TIGHT. We have sold Hundreds and Hundreds of the TWIST with out problems as the reviews says. If you do not know what your doing please buy else-where. Because we will not accept it back.
The moment you use a Driver-Bit on the TWIST to adjust it, it will not be accepted back. NO TWIST leaves in anything other than perfect condition. We do not send out items we know we will get back that is not good business!
Only the people who do not know what their doing have problems - so please buy else-where! If you're a practioner of the balisong you already know these methods for adjusting the TWIST Properly and all is OK. It takes time and experience to adjust any balisong. The TWIST is by far the best beginner balisong there is. Their tough and can take a beating you would not do to your BW or MT $400.00 Balisong.
Box'es have been changed to Black also. There're MTech Extreme. We do not have spare pivots here. You can get replacement pivots at CKK Industries or Knife Kits.com

It is a great butterfly with two tang studs that keep the handles from banging together this make for a tighter lock-up and reduced blade wear.

Blade is marked: Designed by Darrel Ralph. Overall, the quality and construction on this one is very excellent. One of the things that make this knife so outstanding is how customizable it is.

From: Carl xxxxxx <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: RE: Mtech Twist To: email@example.com Date: Thursday, February 7, 2013, 11:04 PM * I am impressed, red loctite solved the problem. All this knife needs is a latch gate and a pocket clip so i can EDC it. Im probablly going to buy another one or two twists from you soon. I hope you have some in stock. BTW do you have any FU42s thats not damascus. -Carl ** [ Note to the Wise ] Get a good Torx bit! Or, driver set! This is unimaginably important. If it does'nt sit tight in the torx receptacle "It's JUNK and you will strip it out !! ALSO; If you're having trouble getting the pivots loose >> use HEAT! Blow Dryer's or Heat GUN for VCT Tile work GREAT... Sloppy fitting bits will ruin you Twist... "Husky or Colbalt Torx Driver & Bit Sets we sell here . You can also find them at Home Depot & Lowes. They are under $10.00 and everyone who ownes a knife should have one of these for repairs or cleaning.
