I was unable to find that elusive extra Tekna Knife, but did find a New Old Stock three gauge Tekna Console. Also have what appears to be an unused Tekna regulator attached to it. Those are available individually or as a set if anyone is interested.
In my recollection the gauges suffered from flooding at an above-average industry rate (second only to Farallon). They did have some innovative ideas. Maybe the engineering designs were originally sound, then went out for production to the WRONG MANUFACTURER that gave the lowest bid. Too bad for the end consumers, for those of us who sold them, and too bad for the company.
That pretty well sums up our luck with some Tekna products. But in all fairness I must admit that the knives didn't flood... (they just rusted).ScubaLawyer wrote: ↑Tue Feb 04, 2020 10:49 pmI had one of those three-gauge Tekna consoles at one point. Compass flooded first time I used it. Depth gauge and pressure gauge both got water in them after about 10 dives. Took it back, the shop gave me a new console, and the same thing happened again over the next 10 dives. Shop refused to replace or send in the second one. I called Tekna and was told all returns had to be done through an authorized Tekna Dealer. I did some leg work, found out the home address of one of the VP's of Tekna and mailed the damn thing to his house with a snarky note saying to fix it. About 6 months later I get a brand new Tekna console in the mail which flooded on dive #2.
