From Gerry’s BLOG:
McGinnis Pro Line is what we are calling it. I don’t want to call it a Mid-Tech, because really the only thing being done outside of our shop is the blade grinding. So, we are going with the McGinnis Pro Line moniker to differentiate these knives from the purely custom side of things. They are all machined using the same processes as my customs, assembled by me the same way with the same attention to detail as I put into my customs, and I have 100% control over how these knives come out because we are doing 95% of it right here in the shop. My dad, 51 years old, is learning and excelling at all the tasks needed to make these knives a reality, and is my partner in McGinnis Pro Line. Two dudes, making knives and having fun!
Care: The only thing you should need to do to your knife upon delivery is clip it in your pocket and carry it. The pivot needs NO ADJUSTMENT. I spend a lot of time tuning each knife, adjusting it won’t make anything magical happen. If the stop pin track gets dirty, blow the knife out with compressed air. If you must take it all the way apart, the clip side screw is the screw to take out of the pivot. Be sure to clean and re grease the bearings with Sentry Solutions Hi Slip Grease or equivalent. If you can’t figure it out from there, PM me. When in doubt, don’t take it apart, especially for no reason.
