What do you guys think? Have you ever seen anything like this?

Waz, the only way they could improve the Broadway Jack and the Delta Jack is by adding a pen blade to them.

I've never seen a lockback with a gap like this. So I emailed Smith & Sons and GEC, and they both said it's normal, not a defect. Smith & Sons was really nice about it and even offered to let me send it back for a refund. They said most of the mudbugs in this run have this same "characteristic". BTW, Smith & Sons has really good customer service; they're very responsive to questions. I'm not ready to send it back for a refund, but I'm not totally happy with it either. I mean, what am I paying for if not supurb fit and finish? The materials are better than a Case sodbuster, but I know the materials don't cost four times as much. (Case soddie is about $27, mudbug was $102 (they charge for shipping)). I can hear it now, you GEC non-enthusiasts out there laughing at me for paying too much for a knife...
What do you guys think? Have you ever seen anything like this? Does anyone else have a mudbug from a previous run with this lock lever gap? Would you send it back for a refund or just keep it and enjoy it, "character" and all?
