    Seconded on that one! Wonder how many brain waves resulting in great mods, improvisations, tweaks, and improvements we're all missing out on because they don't quite fit a certain category...

    Re: I modified my first knife today....

    I like modifying slip joints as well ... a couple things I have done:

    - Case Saddlehorn - I took the end off the peculiar shaped secondary blade and made it into a sheepsfoot.
    - Case medium Stockman - I ground the spey blade and made it into a pen blade.
    - Case large Trapper - I took the end off the large spey blade and made it into a sheepsfoot - tricky part was I had to create a nail nick - did this with a drill press & dremel grinding wheel.

    ...and now I've widened one of the holes in the scales, drilled the blade and made a lanyard pin to fit. It now locks up rock solid should I wish it .
    Looks very second hand though lol

    Re: I modified my first knife today....

    Strange I should run across this thread, having just done my first mod myself. Bought a Kershaw 3840 Freefall at our local Tractor Supply off the bargain bench, thinking it would have the same point(which is enclosed in plastic in the box) as the last one. Turned out it was a Tanto style, which I've no particular use for; although I understand why the Japanese did. Said the heck with it and stuck it on the grinder and modified it into a drop point; which came out rather well I thought. Because this model has a slight belly to it, it has a Roach Belly look to it. Also on the plus side, since the tanto point portion came flat ground I ended up with a re-enforced tip. I kind of like how it turned out.
