Replacing a Delica sent to the unknown.
Great thin slice-y option with a blade and handle length intermediate in length between Delica and Endura. For day-to-day use I appreciate the less swept point of the Delica/Endura profile much more than I expected, otherwise I would have replaced the Delica with a Stretch; but, $$ and I have a million other knives for animal processing (swept points).
However, the side-to-side play in the unlocked blade seemed excessive and I was unable to tighten the pivot enough to change this (doesn't even begin to stiffen opening, and the blade will still rattle with the lock-bar depressed. If this isn't a design feature, I suspect pivot washers from a thicker bladed model using the same lock-bar thickness were used. It seems like a 3mm lock-bar was used and the blade is, nominally, 2.8mm.
Is this normal? I notice it in use. If normal, are there suggestions on replacement washer thickness's to get?
