Welcome to our forum. Sal has a well-trained Warranty & Repair department that would be happy to assist you. It would be difficult to give any explanation or determine the possible issue with your knife without evaluating the knife in-hand. Please send your knife into our Warranty & Repair department for review. Please be sure to ship it to us in a well-protected box and include your contact information. You'll find all of the information that you need here, https://www.spyderco.com/service-suppor ... ty-repair/.
You'll be in great hands with our crew and we hope you enjoy your time with us on the forum.
