How do you loosen the blade on a gerber remix tactical knife?
Try a few drops of a light machine oil, and then work the mechanism for ten minutes: open, unlock, close, open unlock close, again and again. Tomorrow: do it again. The next day? You get it, just go easy on the lube, and after a week you will have a much easier, smoother opening/closing action.
Unlike most modern folding knives, the Remix does not have a user accessible pivot screw (which solves this problem on many knife models). The central ring pivot has three tiny Torx fasteners, but they are T4 or even smaller (!), so I can't disassemble mine (had the same problem). You might try posting to a more appropriate group, since it isn't even the same Gerber company that makes the toilets as makes the knives. But try it, somebody, it will solve your issue fast.
