• New scales for my FRN UKPK

    Hi folks. My Frn UKPK has just been sitting in a drawer for ages as I just prefer my G10 and Ti ones (along with other daily carry knives). I was just going to sell it or give it away, but then I decided to get some new scales for it. Put in my order a couple of weeks ago with Custom Scales Division in Germany and the came today. I got toxic green ones which I do like, but if I'd thought about it instead of just rushing in (as usual )' I may have gone with a different colour. They were so easy to change over and it took me about 5-10 mins and I'm the most unpractical man ever! I was a bit worried the original screws would be too short, but they were fine. I've taken a few pic of the process, plus the end result

    The Frn model next to the new scales along with the washers and backspaces provided




    I made sure to tape the blade up and set it all out on news paper



    The inside of a UKPK. I took the blade out then removed the back spring and the pins



    There's a pic missing, but the next step was to put the pins in, then put on the washer and then attach the spring



    This is the trickiest bit and why you should tape the blade. Put the blade in by putting tension on the lower part of the spring with s small screwdriver and pop the blade on the pivot. It takes a it of time and its rather fiddley, but after a couple of swear words it pops on then stick the 2nd washer.



    Pop the other scale on and stick the pocket clip on then tighten the screws and bobs yer uncle. It takes a little time aligning everything up, but it all fits rather well






    So there you go. Feels really good. Might take a little time to wear in a bit to get it really smooth, but apart from that all is well. It makes a huge difference to the knife and feels a bit more solid now.

    Thanks for looking

    Thought I'd give this a go. Sorry if it's been tried before but I quite like the version on the other side of the pond. Everyone gets a bit creative with their camera's... Plus it's a nice opportunity to see what's out there....:) Sam

    Forum knife? - Discussion

    Thread Starter: sal

    Years ago, there was a long discussion on making a forum knife for the BB forum. After much discussion, it was narrowed to two models (a Native Slipit and a custom design). We made two protos and sent them in to BB. As it turned out, the Native model was selected. Then the Golden factory ended...

    Pictured below is my Mk 2 AA TX200, best spring rifle I ever owned, consistently very accurate and powerful. Came with the Beech stock which is functional but heavy and boring so for a while I have thought about changing it, Was in one of the Gun shops a couple of weeks ago and had hold of a TX...

    KITH - Mudlarking, Flotsam, driftwood

    Thread Starter: goat

    Happy new year folks. To kick off 2015 I thought it might be nice to have a KITH. In case you don't know, a KITH stands for Knife in the Hat. People sign up, make a knife and the names are drawn out a hat and the first person sends their knife on to the second and so on. Theme follows on from...

    Anyone interested in a Friction Folder KITH

    Thread Starter: cybertrix

    I have decided to design a new friction folder for myself so I thought about making it a KITH. I am looking at a UK legal blade length but apart from that anything goes. Are any of you interested in joining in, I am thinking about a finish date of sometime in July.

    British Military Kukri

    Thread Starter: SilverJohn

    Hi there, I never really had much of an interest in knives beyond a trusty SAK or Leatherman until around May last year. That was when I first spotted some interesting modern kukri and learned a bit about the range of styles within kukri (hence my handle, though I've got noting to do with Tora,...
