I posted this on the Byrd general discussion and got no responses, so I thought I would post it here since there is more traffic on the Spyderco side.

When I close my New Cara Cara, I noticed that the belly of the blade at the end, rests on the handle inside. I think it's the piece that holds the spring.

Anyway, I was just wondering if that is normal. I know some knives have extra pins, or a raised part near the hilt that keeps the blade "floating" when closed.

I'm thinking of putting a little piece of felt or cork there, but if it's a defect then I'd prefer to send it back.
