Nothing revolutionary here, finally did a common mod on my BK11 and opened up the handle for my top finger. It makes quite the difference. This was one of those blunt tip Camillus 11s that appeared in bulk about two years ago. I took care of the tip issue too.
ITo my surprise, I found a knife in my mailbox a few days ago. A good friend of mine just sent one out, for fun. It's a QSP Neckmuk. He knows I like Nessmuk blades so that's very kind of him.
I liked the blade immediately but that pinky guard was annoying me quite badly. I could cram my hand between both guards but that obviously wasn't comfortable, and putting my pinky behind the guard (which is what I think you're supposed to do) didn't feel natural at all either.
So off goes the hump!
I've never been very handy but I think it turned out okay. Some grind lines here and there but nothing that annoys me too much.
Here she is next to another D2 friend of hers:
Nothing extraordinary but I don't usually take a grinder and belts to my knives so for me it was quite a project, hahaha... It's much more comfortable now and I like the lines of the knife a lot better too.
This kinda gave me courage to maybe finally take a go at the Swabbie...
Looks like you did a good job!
I know it's kinda late, but do you have before pictures while you are holding it? Handle design has become a new passion of mine.
