Took the notion to go ahead and try cutting and reshaping a blade today. Case 3207 CV long Spey blade cut and shaped to standard size Sheepfoot blade; used the Sheepfoot on my 6318 as a visual guide. I am pleased with the blade length and shape but not so pleased with my nail-nick. I cut the blade off straight with a Dremel and then hand shaped the curve and angle with two files. I am going to stop by and visit a buddy who has an industrial buffer and see if we can clean the nick up a bit (then I'll post a photo of that side). For a working knife it will do just fine, I think with this pocketknife some patina will be useful. OH

I think you did a great job with the sheepsfoot conversion. Can't wait to see the finished version

Very nice! Makes a very useful blade combination.
