    No need to modify the blade at all in my opinion. May not look normal, but feels just fine.

    I agree! No need to mod the blade. It feels fine as is.

    I am on BOOMERS' list for one of my Delicas to become a Lil' Para. Excite!

    Knockout look. :)

    Great design, congratulations on a well carried out project.
    I got tired of the "old looking" handle shape on my Delicas and stopped carrying them. I want that handle.

    What's the "ballpark" cost for this mod? Just curious. If it's been stated and I missed it, I apologize.

    EDIT: Thanks Boomer52, for the PM.

    Just thinking (that may be dangerous):D
    You may not need the liners on this knife with the slabs of G10 in place. G10 is much stronger than FRN. I don't think anyone will be batoning with this beautiful knife.

    Great Work!

    Would these work on a Salt 1?

    Boomer,

    Your work is downright awesome! Would you ever consider a similar mod for the Endura?

    Thanks... this Delica was a collaborative work. Member suggestions got it to this point.

    I think there is room for some profile modifications to the Endura... it's just finding time to play around in CAD and seeing what's possible. The weeks following Christmas are typically my slow period and I have time for design work and developing new models. MAYBE it could happen then...

    If anyone is sill on the fence about getting a set of these scales you need to jump off of the fence and get an email out to Boomer ASAP! The fit and finish on these scales is phenomenal. I'm working or my next color combo already. Thanks Boomer. Keep up the great work!

    I've now machined ALL of the liner color options for the GrindMod Delica/Lil'Para and I thought I'd put photos of those colors in one place... toxic green, royal blue, coyote brown, OD green and jade, orange, and red...

    Got mine today and installed them immediately. I'm not particularly handy but the mod was easy with a sharpie and a Dremel with a cutting wheel. Dealing with the tiny screws was more difficult than the mod. The second pic shows one liner marked for cutting but not yet done.

    Kevin... from the last photo... it looks like you had the proper lubrication for this modification...! I hope the new scales serve you well...!

    All jade scales and a black or blue backspacer would look awesome. You could see through it to the steel liners.

    Yes sir. The mod was super easy. You did an excellent job on this design and execution. I am likely going to order another set when you get the red liners and back spacer material in stock. Hard to decide between that and orange when you're a VFL like me.

    What's the story with the micarta scales "experiment"?
