And so far, I'm a little disappointed. The blade had a little movement when locked, but I think I have that adjusted out. What I am following up with Gerber is this defect on the blade. To me it looks like a rough spot weld, but I don't understand why they would be welding on the blade after its ground. I sent the pic to Gerber customer service last night and havn't heard back yet. I will follow up on this thread when I do hear back. Thoughts?
