My little kershaw pocket knife has a rattle when it is open.. Is this normal?? I hadn't noticed it until now.. Is it time for a new one?

Can you see exactly which part is rattling? Is it the blade, or the pocket clip, or possibly even the sliding safety? Provided you have the proper-sized Torx bit, you can tighten any of these yourself.

I can't see which part .. It ONLY rattles when the blade is locked open

When my Kershaw Leek is opened, part of it rattles too if I shake it. I think that's normal and it doesn't bother me, but I'm no expert. I can't see what part it is either.

My Kershaw Leek also rattles when it's open, although it's only done it after about 6 months. Still don't have any other problem with it. It lock up fine and the A/0 still works great. I don't worry about it.

Good chance that it's either the safety or the clip being loose. I wouldn't be surprised. My safety has been loosened up on my leek so often that I just took it off - no problems.

Also, forgot to mention that kershaw's customer service is really top notch.. Once I sent in a knife for repairs, and it was a pretty worn one at that -- They offered to replace it but that one was my first so I said no thanks.. So I got it back with a little surprise in the package -- a BRAND NEW kershaw along with my old one!

You can send it to Kershaw for service and they'll address the problem.
