    i'm thinking of picking up my first assisted opening style knife (the kershaw packrat) but i'm wondering if these spring loaded knives are easy to take apart and reassemble like most of today's manual knives. one of my favorite features of my 2 current edc knives is the ability to completely take them apart and get to the insides for cleaning when needed and i'm hoping AO knives aren't much more difficult, so if any of you have ever taken one apart please let me know how it went and if there were any issues.

    They are not any more difficult, just make sure that they are open when you take them apart so that there is no tension on the torsion bar.
