    Default Blade not centered. How to fix?

    Got one with the toe close to one side of scales. Can it be fixed without unpinning? Do I peen at the tang end to try to move it? what side do I peen to try and bring it back over? Whats the meaning of life? Why are we here? Will I ever get a w&B F.B.U?

    You can peen it to do that a little, but depending on how much it's off it might be best to unpin

    You have to flex the scales one way as you peen the pivot, although i guess you could peen the wedge side too...it's hard to explain, but you want to move the scales in opposite directions to fix the off centeredness. GL
