    Post some photos, including a photo looking down into the well with the blades closed. Are the blades actually touching each other or the liners in the closed position? Or are you pushing the blades against each other or the liners when you are opening them? Why do you think it might be a concern? Does it affect the function in some way?

    Minor blade rub is common on stock knives, cattle knives, whittlers and other multi-blades. Sometimes it's just cosmetic.

    Dan4, can you make an update with a photo of the well?

    Here are some photos of Case & Rough Rider knives that show the difference between a manufacturing defect and normal wear. The Rough Rider 725's clip blade and sheepfoot blade are hitting hard and the spey is hitting the liner hard. In contrast, there is no contact between the blades and liners on the Case 3347. Any rub marks on the Case knife would be caused by pushing on the blades instead of pulling straight up.
