I am wondering if changing to bronze washers would get rid of the blade play, and has anyone ever done this before?
Welcome to the Spyderco Forums Nex! I don't see how changing to phosphor bronze washers would solve you're problem. The Teflon washers, in the couple knives I have with them, are actually pretty hard. I can't say for sure but I think bronze washers of the same size might actually be more flexible. And, quite honestly, it seems to me like Teflon washers would be the tougher material.
As dsvirsky has suggested, blade play when the blade is closed isn't really important providing the blade's not rattling around. How does the blade lock up when it's open?
