    I just got a Delica 4 and after I opened and closed it a few times the blade started loosening, which seems to happen to every folder I have. I tried adjusting the blade and lock bar pivot and couldn't get a smooth opening and closing without play. Any suggestions? Once I find the right balance I'll use some blue Loctite.

    I also would contact Spyderco and send it in. My Delica 4 is great. It is my weekend knife.

    I just e-mailed Spyderco about the problem. I hope they'll take care of it for free.
