Hiya Chocrates...(cool handle by the way).....

I stole my name from Socrates also...."ExamonLyf" ~~> as in his famous quote ~~> "The unexamined life is not worth living".....

And yeah..., doing a BASIC Typhoon kit is really easy, and you do get instructions on the basic set-up. Just don't file too much material out of the tang pin cups. That's the most common error I've seen.

Very cool knife! Give it a try!

You can pick up everything you need right on the Knife Kits site ~~> HERE.., or any Home Depot or Lowe's would also have what you need.

You'll need an 1/8" round file for the tang-cups, and a set of the Torx drivers in the tool section. No need for sanding at all, but I'd suggest using a set of the Phospur-Bronze washers. You'll also need some thread adhesive. "LOC-TITE" is the only way to go.., and in my opinion either blue or red are both OK..., just don't over do the application. Just takes a TINNNNNNNNY bit applied with a tooth pick on the pivot screws. Knife Kits has all this stuff ready to go.., and you'll have no problem at all.

Have fun with it.., great knife for the $$$$.
