reassembling EKA Normark Big Swede knife

Post by normark » Thu Nov 08, 2018 10:17 pm

I took an old Normark Big Swede apart to clean it. It belonged to my neighbor who died. It accidentally fell apart and now I can't figure out how to put the spring bar back in place! I have spent hours on this puzzle. Can anyone help me, PLEASE. THANKS MUCH.

It would help if you can post some pictures of all the parts.

Here is the picture of the Normark big Swede I can't put back together. Thanks guys for all your help. I am crazy now after days of working on this. I don't know where the bar spring goes or in what position the rubber piece should be!

Hello out there, far and wide. I still need some help in reassembling the Normark Big Swede, as in the picture link I sent. I am a 74 year old woman and I would like to get this knife in working order before I am too old to use it! Thanks much, especially to Sammy da Blade and John who requested a picture.

Hello,

I see this thread is a bit old, but I recently reassembled my Normark Big Swede, and may be of assistance. Note that the picture does not appear to be a Big Swede model, but perhaps some other model. Let me know if you still need assistance - there's a bit of a trick to assembling the locking mechanism, which requires a bit of pressure.

Hi:

I'm new here. I have an actual Normark Big Swede. Some silly person took it apart, and now I can't fully get it back together.
LightlyToasted: If you would explain/show photos or do whatever you can to explain how to get it back together, I'd greatly appreciate it.
I thought I knew all the tricks, but I may still not know enough, and I've been trying for hours. I would be very grateful for that.

Thanks
