I've had a few do this to me after moving the pivot screw. Get yourself some blue loctite and use just a tip of a toothpick, adjust it to the perfect spot for you and then let it set up. The bearings should smooth out with more use, although I cant say I've ever heard someone say that theirs whistles!I love mine but I think there must be something wrong with the bearing pivot...it seems to have excess drag...it actually whistles during blade rotation...and feels like it's rubbing. The pivot has worked itself loose twice now, forcing me to retighten. I've taken it apart to clean, polish, and lube the moving parts, with no substantial improvement. It definitely does not meet the description of smoothness that everyone else describes, but is nonetheless very solid, pretty and functional. I think the minor kinks will work themselves out with time and use. I still REALLY like this knife and think is a darn near perfect edc.
