I would like to have them mounted properly. Can you help ?

    Don - I bought this old Camillus #23 back in 2010 form Cory (comoha here on BF) and he said he'd had you re-scale it for him. Do you remember what type of bone you used here? I'm reducing my collection down to a few dozen, and I'm definitely keeping this one. I'd like to know what the handle material is for my records.



    This is one of my favorite knives. Every time I show it to someone I get comments on it.

    Okay, thanks; I'll PM Cory & see if he might remember. It's not a big deal, and it's great work.

    Purchased a Grayman Dua a few months ago. I love the beefy build of this knife (compared my small Sebenza) and made a few modifications to suit my ergos. Most of the mods were inspired by the Sebenza: 1) rounded the blade spine. 2)ground the blade belly and handle to create a bigger choil. 3) Ground the handle at the thumb stud to make blade deployment easier.

    I'm very happy with the mods i made although having trouble with the finishing. The tooling in my shop is not refined enough for what i would consider a proper finish such as smoothing and polishing or coating. Looking for someone to do the remaining finish work . Hoping you will make suggestions. Thanks.

    I'm looking for a revised Vic Farmer.

    Add scissors.
    Ad stag covers.
    Preferably with tweezers, toothpick, pen.
    If the ring in hidden, that's gravy.

    Is that in your wheelhouse?

    Mr.Seals,
    Looking for someone to take out the blade play on a big Case folder. Do you do that type of work?

    Seals,

    Do you work on Victorinox knives?

    I want a Farmer with a scissors, stag covers, pen-tweezers-toothpick, and hidden ring.

    Is that is your wheelhouse?
