    Re: Columbia River Liong Mah Folder

    Just modified mine slightly..



    May not look the prettiest (still need to finish it with finer grit paper).. But it's now a lot comfier in the hand and the OHO position seems much more natural.

    I might have a go at that myself. Looks good.

    Did you do both sides or just one?

    I'd guess that both sides were done, it would be pretty uncomfortable when in the hand otherwise.

    Yeah both sides are done. I just removed the pivot and slid the blade out.. Kept the rest of the handle intact so that both sides were sanded down evenly.

    Nice bit of tweaking there.
    Makes me start to wonder if the original handle shape was a last minute change to appeal to a wider market where OHO is still a problem even with a slippy.

    If you were to take the line of the scale down a little further so its parallel with the groove it looks like the cutout would match up with the shape of the finger groove?

    Might have to buy one of these and have a play.

    Q. for anyone who's had one in bits. How meaty is the pivot by the way?

    That's really nice, much better shape, What did you use to sand it down with ?

    Thanks! Just clamped it in a soft jawed vice and used a dremel with a sanding drum bit.

    Re: Columbia River Liong Mah Folder

    Just come across the SRM M1, which looks to have a very similar mechanism. Has anyone tried one?

    Not a great review is it, she mentions the left/right pocket clip options, I wonder why none of us on this side of the pond seem to have it??
