Opening via the flipper
While knife is closed, hold knife firmly allowing for knife opening to be clear to open blade. Then apply pressure with your index finger on the flipper. The more pressure, the faster the blade will fully open to locked position. Make sure your fingers are clear of the opening. Injury can occur if it is not.
Unlocking the Blade
The blade will automatically secure when fully opened by the frame lock. To unlock the frame lock, simply push the left frame in the left direction with your thumb until blade is clear. Then push blade down to close. Be sure all fingers are clear before fully closing blade.

We at Factor Equipment are very confident that all of our products can and will serve your daily task for years to come. We warranty each of our products to be free of defects in material and workmanship for the life of the product. If one of our products are proven to be defective due to a manufacturing or material defect, we will repair or replace the knife at no cost to you.
In the event that your Factor Equipment knife breaks under the terms of this warranty, please contact customer service by emailing email@example.com. A customer service representative will provide you with instructions for getting your product serviced. Shipping charges for repair or replacement are not covered under warranty.
Products that are discontinued and not repairable will be worked with on a case by case basis with each customer.
What is not Covered
This warranty runs as long as you own your product unless your Factor Equipment product is modified in any way.
This warranty does not cover breakage or failure due to misuse. Our products are designed to be of high quality and it should be extremely rare that your product break due to effect. Usually they break or fail from what we consider abusive behavior (not covered by warranty):
The warranty can become void if:
- Our knives are used for any purpose other than cutting (improper use).
- The knife is modified in any way.
- There is damage caused by abuse, misuse, loss, improper handling, alterations, accident, neglect, disassembly, or improper sharpening.
- Repairs to your knife are performed by any other source
- unsuitable tasks like prying, pounding, chiseling, and hammering
- most blade tip breakage is not covered by our warranty.
Also, consequential and incidental damages are not recoverable under this warranty. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of consequential damages, so this exclusion or limitation may not apply to you.
Misuse of your knife can cause serious injury or even death. It can also cause your knife to break or fail and the Factor Equipment limited lifetime warranty will not apply. Failure to properly maintain your knife also may cause its mechanisms to not function properly, which could result in injury to you or damage to the knife.
Like most tools, our knives should be cared for properly. As your knife has been used for an extended period of time, it is possible that the knife may need sharpening or maintenance to retain its usefulness. Any and all maintenance is the responsibility of the knife owner and is not covered by this warranty.

This is my second Factor Knife and I’m very impressed with the quality and functionality. I’m a knife guy With quite a few very expensive knives and I believe that you can’t find another knife at double the price that is this nice! I can’t wait until my next paycheck so I can buy a couple more items! You can’t go wrong with knife I highly recommend!!!

I love this knife! I’ve had it now for about 2 months and still have yet to sharpen it, no need yet. The scales did take a bit of getting used to (when you play with it for like 2 hrs straight it gets a bit rough on the finger tips lol) but they work VERY well with gloves or without. It is heavy duty and sharp as hell right out of the box. The flipping action is a bit stiff but I think part of that is just because the blade is so stout.

Just received the Factor Hardened Knife today in the orange G-10. This knife is very impressive! The first thing I noticed was it’s presence in hand. This is definitely a workhorse and feels very robust. The flipper tab sends the knife into the open position with a authority but also very smoothly! Disengage the frame lock and it falls closed just as smooth. The machining on the top spine is a unique and cool feature and actually allows you to open the knife similarly to a hole in the blade. My knife was dead centered and just super impressive right out of the box. I’m very excited about this knife and can already tell it will be a substantial hard use folder that will be prepared for all my cutting needs! Another winner from Factor Equipment! They continue to impress. Well Done!
