    Hey, I just noticed, that spot where you pin the scissors spring in place, when they are closed it comes out in a perfect spot for a thumb stud for easier opening....

    It would be, but I don't like thumb studs on MTs, they tend to snag when I put them in sheaths, and they make awkward pressure points when doing things like screwing in screws.

    I don't know whether it's just the early morning, or whether it's how this tool makes me feel, but all I saw from that post was G and spot.

    Eric you stud.

    I took this one out of edcf/MTO member enki_ck.

    VIC SCISSORS!

    Easiest scissor mod, no need to pin anything, just simply needed to bore out the pivot hole from 3mm to 7/32. Again, carbide bits made this easy. Since I already pushed in the liner lock so it wouldn't push up against the scissors, this was a simple drop in.

    Seriously....no mods whatsoever.

    The Vic's scissors are going to leave plenty of room for the ferro rod, whenever they get here..

    They are a pleasure to use like all Vic scisssors, not as cool or as crisp as the Gerber ones but these are much more accessible and cheaper. A simple, even used SAK can be used to harvest a pair.

    When you can drill out a vic and put screws on the pivot then you and I are gonna have to work out a deal:)

    That I am not willing to do. LMs have a lot of...slop...and I can get away with shoddy craftsmanship. The dudes that rock the alox and barrel pins are a whole other universe. Talk to syph007 or bushido, they are Jedi's of the SAK parts. (Get it...arts...parts...)

    Sweeeet!

    Hmm. Wonder if, since my wingman scissors are in my wave, if I can put SAK scissors in the wingman... Hmm...


    Yeah, LMs are a LOT easier to fit than SAKnives, I used to mod them a lot for folks, was about 50% or more of the business I got when I was modding knives as a service... But it was such a :censored: at times to get the stack in the right order to not only go together, but work right. Thats one reason I skipped on modding my Spirit, apart from having to get it apart, the tolerances are soooo close, it looked like more trouble than it was worth to change what I wanted to.

    I bet if you just pushed the liner lock in so it didn't bounce out, the Vic scissors would drop in. The biggest hurdle is getting the hole to be 7/32, with out carbide tools, you will spend eternity hoging out the pivot with a dremel (which is why enki_ck did a year ago)

    Yeah, I have had and used a lot of carbide bits, but the biggest is about 3/16"... The ones that got the most use were 1/8" and under. I have some solid carbide carving burs that I use for this type of enlarging now, careful to keep the holes round, for minor enlargements its easier than drilling. But for 7/32", I think I have a solid carbide end mill that size, that would work in a pinch, to drill it out.
