I am curious why people are so concerned with blade centering? In my experience it doesn't make a difference in the way my knives deploy or close. It seems like I have have been seeing a lot of talk about blade centering recently. Maybe it was always that way, and just hadn't caught my attention before. I have quite a few knives, some have perfect blade centering others do not. I find that my older knives seem to favor the left side, I imagine that is because of the pressure applied during deployment shifts the blade over time. My favorite knife, my 940 hugs the left side significantly, but works just as great as it ever did.
