It has never seen any hard use so no clue why. I have never taken it apart. The blade almost feels loose. Usually I would start with tightening pivot screws but don’t see any.
    Advice is much appreciated.

    It looks like there is a removable clip insert right over the other side of the pivot screw. I would assume if you take the insert out, you could get to the pivot to tighten it.

    Thank you. Don’t know why I didn’t see that.

    My friend Bryce, of T.L.E. Sharpening did a beautiful job of a full Resurrection of My Boker Resurrection. My phone camera couldn’t do it justice but here are some pics.

    Glad to help man. I'm really pleased with the way it turned out. I was afraid the choil would look a bit silly, but I think it flows pretty well with the design.

    That choil looks like it should have been there from inception.
    Nice to see a mod that flows with the original design.
