I have been threatening to go where no man has gone before. Again. The monster six was the first foray. Razelishous. That wet my whistle and got me thinking . . . I kept talking myself out of it because the dang thing is only good for one thing. Poking someone who is trying to take my life etc. I am obsessed with taking the Ti Lite into the land of peace and creativity or at least "constructive destruction". I have been drawn to the Ti Lite four knife of late because of the roundish, somewhat slender and SCULPTED handle. Some/most say it is UN ergonomic and so one of the ?many? reasons it is not a good or useful EDC. I'll buy that (well I bought two actually hahaha) but seriously I'm out to fool around with that knife and mod it to be more EDC BECAUSE I think the handle has a lot of potential in that department at lest for me. Case in point take a look at that Opinel right above it in the photo bellow. Hmmmmmm What don't I like about the Opinel handle ? It needs a bit of flat or rounded corner here or there to reference off of and improve twisting grip. What does the Ti Lite have ? You got it ! Similar shape to the Opinel but BETTER ! For now she is stock and went to work today for the first time. Before it is all over the blade may get shortened. I like it at four inches but the law here says three is nicer. I used to EDC a four fixed no less concealed for most of the eighties into the nineties. Never was an issue / never got caught except once getting on an air plane and I just put it in my checked in luggage. Almost for sure the blade will get thinned. How much we will have to see. It could be as much or nearly as much as that Cold Steel paring knife. I don't need to be able to drive it through the side of a car or steel toed boot; just a card board box or lunch. The pointy point . . . ? ? ? . . . I was planning on rounding that some right off but now that I have been using this thing . . . I dig it like it is. For now at least. It does useful work as it is and that is . . . well . . . useful. It SEEMED in the catalog and YouTubes to be pretty darned long still. Now that i have it in hand it is about what I have been EDCing all year, every day and actually looks a bit demure next to the other dudes. Can a Cold Steel Ti Lite be "demure" ? I leave THAT for you to decide dear reader. OK enough for now. More later. At the very least I am pretty sure I will be thinning this thing out some and changing the scales to sculpted Ti without the round holes but with perhaps longitudinal grooves and or riffling texture. See the thread here on "what's your favorite knife designers". PS: Yes I will probably move this thread once I start moding the knife but for now it seems like it belongs in the General forum. Just comparing the Ti Lite to the other knives and other uses.
