The saddest thing is I am mildly disappointed in the QC of some of my recent Spydies. Starting to have doubts....

Never. Too many knives to count and never even thought about returning one for grind lines and a few of mine look like yours.

I'd live with sticky lock rather than bad grind. Having said that, yours (grind) doesn't look bad to me.

The lock stick was just the beginning of the problems with that one. On about my 30th flick to open it the detention ball just fell out. Returned both. If I can actually see one in store and inspect before I buy I might try again some day but that is unlikely since no store within 100 miles even sells Spydercos.

You might try getting one off of the BF Exchange. That way someone has had their hands on it and can tell you how it is.

I've also heard that KnifeWorks will hand pick knives for you if you call them up and tell them the properties you want them to check.
