I have a first model CRK Umnumzaan clip point. As I type, the knife is totally OEM including double spring clip affixed. I want to lighten its weight, my goal being two ounces (57 grams) without touching blade or integrity of its frame lock. This means eliminating titanium from its scales, including perhaps swapping out spring clip for its filler plate. Removing metal by hogging out slots appears to be something to avoid because I believe this would reduce my ability for a secure grip in use - and would look lousy. Possibly "Swiss cheesing", blending somewhat with the bold checkering on the scales and enhancing the cross-hatching appearance would achieve result wanted. I request suggestions on an effective procedure to achieve the weight reduction. I further request contact information for knife makers or craftsmen who can complete the work.
