It’s a really easy fix if you have a vice and ball peen hammer and some sandpaper and a little polish. I dropped mine two days after owning it . Main blade open and it resulted in it getting some play. Took me about 20 mins to fix it. But there are risks if your not careful. You could take it on yourself or send it to gec for repair! I’ve had good luck either way!Good evening gentlemen. I’m a relative newbie as far as GEC’s are concerned, however, I was recently bitten by the 86 bug. In the last month I’ve picked up an Oily Bone and an Autumn Gold Herringbone. Both examples had perfect centering, great for and finish and zero side-to-side play. This afternoon my 86 Stag arrived. Again the centering was perfect, the finishing was excellent, however, there is substantial side-to-side play in both blades (particularly on the coping blade). I really don’t want to return the knife to the dealer as there are no more in stock, however, I don't want to live with the blade play either...has anyone else had this issue with there’s and is there any way to remove the blade play? Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys, CJ.
