Unhappy Wobbling Blade Handle? Need help !

Hello! I recently purchased my first balisong from the phillipines, and I've encountered a slight problem. Originally, the blade was very tight, but I used WD-40 on the hinges and loosened it up by opening and closing the blade. Now its loose, yay, but now the handle itself wobbles up and down slightly, and it just doesn't seem right

Heres a picture of my knife closed; (excuse the poor phone quality if you can)

my knife opened;

And a picture of the "wobble"

Is this normal? If it isn't is there some kind of fix? I've tried searching online but it seems theres a million different ways depending on the type of blade, and if you pros could give me any info I would greatly appreciate it!

Thanks for reading.
