I'll try to get a group shot of clips moved to the other end and blade mods...
440C is a good steel, and I have many knives made with it that have stood up to many years of hard use outdoors (though hammering a blade through logs is abuse, not hard use - iIMHO).
That 'chipped' blade looks like it suffered more from poor design, rather than inadequate material. Hard to tell, but to me the primary 'bevel' appears to be a hollow grind, which is not exactly known for strength...
You're very welcome to do so, that's why I took pics of that, too.
I also have bought 2 quickchange sanding files from RoNa some time ago, but my version is easier to use.
I don't know if there's information on this RoNa file in english, but if you google for
"Schnellspann-Schmirgelfeile" then you'll get it from the pictures anyways.
But yeah, I guess I'll use my system more
Oh, and wood is really nice to work with, but you must be careful if you work on it with machines.
After drilling and attaching it onto the liners I ground the rough shape with a fresh 24 grit sandpaper.
At the corners it broke off a piece of wood because I sanded against the growing lines which is a bad idea.
Other than that it's a very nice material.
worked on this about 4.5 hours today. Overall I am very pleased! I am loving this kirinite! One odd thing about this knife, The liners would not separate from the lanyard hole....made it interesting to get everything lined up, but I think my patience paid off. Also, got the pocket clip right!
Haven't finished this one, yet, but I feel that I don't want to give it back to its owner.
Maybe I have to get a Chill for myself to mod it like this, it just lays in the hand so well with the thick handle for the palm but thin in front. But so many other knives on my wishlist...
My blade mods. Spey blades don't move me and I simply gotta have a punch!

My clip mods. None are pretty. But they work and I can't tolerate a tip down knife!

Made a thumb disk for my Kershaw CQC-6
Thinking of doing the same...was it difficult?
Not too bad. A dremel and drill press helped a lot.
Perfect! I have both! Thanks!
Making a Lock bar stabilizer is the almost same.
I must re-anodize the rounded tip of the clip, this way it's much more comfortable.
Got myself some more 9V batteries, I hope I can get some interesting colors.
I also heat treated the screws and pivot to a nice bronce tone, only the stop pin didn't really take the color.
Can't get it out of one scale and I didn't want to overheat the Ti (not probable at 600 Celsius degrees, but you never know).
The most I like that the scales and the lock spring share nearly the same color:
some better pics...
Next project for the Emerson CQC 6K: changed my mind, so red and black it is...
Oooo, a BMK 350, on of my favorite classic Benchmades. Very nice sir, have any other pictures of this fine knife?
I'll see what I can do...
Do you like lanyard holes? Right now I always try to leave the hole and put an exactly shortened pin of the same thickness in the holes in the liners to be held by the scales. But I guess you make a framelock folder, there it wouldn't work unless you make a knot at the end of the lanyard and put it only through the backside.
Waiting for your results. I'll work on the cf backspacer for the Chill today
Haven't really used the lanyard holes, but iI don't want to leave them out just yet!
Okay, first attempt at the ONE scale for the CQC 6K, epic failure! LOL! Not sure what went wrong but I over drilled the screw holes.
So, I started over. Here is where I am for the evening. So far, I think it might be okay...
