The master blade snaps closed, I would call neither wobbly open, the pen blade stands proud of the frame, I've attempted no fix or cleaning of any sort, left all originalThank God! After the year 1875, the hamlet of Plymouth CT, on the Naugatuck river, was re-named Thomaston. A great, rare CT made piece to add to a knife collection. Good luck to all, and check my other knives this & every week this fall.
