I'd say it depends on you. The only thing centering really affects is your resale value. You wouldn't notice it in use if it doesn't rub. I have more than a few off-center knives that I keep as users. If it bugs you or if you think you might sell it later, then return or replace it. It is pretty far off and any good dealer should help out. Also, check if the pivot is loose.
Others mentioned the pivot. Sometimes a slight adjustment of the pivot screw can center, or off-center the blade. This is presuming it has a pivot screw.
What knife/brand is it?
As long as it didn't rub it wouldn't bother me. Especially if I had to pay for return shipping, and possibly pay for shipping of the replacement, and possibly pay a restocking fee.
Since I don't know the maker I don't know what their return policy is. It's possible some makers won't see an off-centered blade as something to justify paying shipping to send a replacement.
Whenever I consider returning a knife for replacement I always consider the possibility that the replacement might have a worse problem.
It's a spyderco endura 4.
From knifecenter, I would think they would cover shipping. I haven't called yet.
That's really way off. It could be an optical illusion but it looks as if the blade itself is warped.I purchased a knife I like.
Only issue is the blade isn't centered perfectly.
I really dig the knife, should I just use the thing and not obsess over this minor thing?
