Haven’t had it happen on a mod or build, but seen is on a few used knives over the years. I check the fit before peening. I just push the main blade toward the small blade. Mostly to check for any alignment issues, but also contact with the liner and spacer.

One possible fix if you don’t want to take it apart is to remove a tiny bit of material on the round end of the tang where it goes flat on the blade side. Where the blade makes contact with the backspring when closed. Just not the choil side.

Good luck with the fix.

nice one, I think I'll give that a go as don't want to take it apart again at this stage if possible ;0)

Moving forward in the 18th Century we come to this sword from sometime around the 1770s, apparently quite a significant period for my colonial chums. ;)  Unlike the two smallswords we've looked at already this is a blade intended for a cut-and-thrust style of fighting rather than the thrust only.  This single edged blade is known as a "backsword" to signify it has a thick spine rather than being a double edged blade.  Also this may have been known as a spadroon; a term for a lighter sword than basket-hilted claymores or cavalry swords that were around at the same time.  This one is incredibly light at almost exactly 1 lb or 460g.  This is in part due to it's very simple guard and bone grip but also a very slim blade.  This light weight and unobtrusive guard would have made for a very convenient sword to carry on campaign.  The guard still shows some trace of the gilt that would have had it nice and shiny when new.

He's a very handsome wee chap.  :)
