    Not that it'd NEED it.

    I just like the aesthetics of EO'ers. :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    And I'm wondering if one would look as good IRL as I'd imagine it would

    >>> so post up a pic or two if ya have one, please...thank you! :)

    As a person who has modified many a knife, often on a whim, including performing an EO notch on a boy's knife, I encourage you to practice one one or two Rough Riders and then jump in the deep end on the Lionsteel, and show us the results!

    I lack the skill and set up. I have not even done the long planned handles for my spydie mules.... but looking at my Dom and roundheads, seems like they could be modified a bunch of ways. The scales are screwed on, so they could changed out without problem it would seem. If I could, I would do a full wood scale in an exotic wood. The titanium could anodized (dark blue) or textured, just dimbled or fancy engraving would look really cool. I have an extra roundhead if someone is up for it!

    I'd like to see somebody fill in an EO notch for a change :D That would be a challenging mod;)

    The liners are Ti if I recall, so I am thinking challenging indeed!

    And I have the perfect knife for that project. An eo 25 where the notch is superfluous. IMG_4796~2-1024x768.JPG

    There's some great wood on that gem Alan :thumbsup: But filing the gap's going to be 'challenging';)

    I've begun to dare to dream that one day EO notches will be but a memory....;):D:D

    I've gotten used to it and I have one other where it's practical. This one however is a puzzle because the blade can't be opened using the notch.

    Couldn’t open my Navy Lambsfoots without the EO notch

    I kinda want to volunteer to attempt that, just to see how it would turn out. I'm thinking maybe make several small inserts based on a trace of the notch curve, set with epoxy, and fine-sand to finish.

    Brave idea! Have to get the wood to match, very challenging indeed, but not impossible-and not without reason ;):thumbsup:

    I was kinda thinking a contrast wood and make little half Moon inlays. Maybe a nice light maple or something.
