    I love it! Modding my Swabbie is still up there on my "to do" list.

    @Creaky Bones did some Great Work on that handle. I must say it's one of the most comfortable and controllable blades i have had. It's a keeper and I will be shipping it to Al Welke for some new pants.

    There’s a really sweet parang hidden inside the swabbie once you cut off all the pirate parts

    You can round that silly point in the handle down on a belt sander like I did on the swabbie parang. You’re right though, the stock bumpy plastic grips leave a bit to be desired.

    You got the last of my homemade burlap micarta lol. I’m going to make another batch at some point. I’m really happy that they fit your mitts!
