    I guess my mod is a lil bit simpler, just stripped off the coating, and semi-polished the sandblast(yes, my recon 1 is not stonewashed underneath, it's sandblasted) using flitz

    Here is a couple more of my heavily modded Recon 1 with Spanto tip and much narrower blade. Now it's a true traditional tanto.

    Did you do the handle on the TM? How much did it cost? Id be interested in doing that to my Trailmaster.

    I try to drill that into my head too. To block out the envy. So I see where you're coming from.

    I gotta say, I agree with this guy. If you gave one to me I *might* keep it, but I'd certainly never make one myself, nor would I even pay $2 to have one modded like that.

    No envy here, just stating my opinion. Thats good for you however and I hope that tactic works

    What if the grind line matched the edge?

    Still not appealing to me neither is the handle mod. I do however dig that recon one spanto mod. Now that's more my cup of tea

    What kind of meat is that? It looks like a cross between ham and mortadella.

    Looks high in fat and sodium, and low in protein.

    Nothing too radical-- kept it low-stress, fun & therapeutic...I enjoyed every minute :D

    Stripped & Scotchbrited slabs...ditto on the blade...reprofile blade edge & re-apex...install hardened steel pommel...Renaissance Waxed liners & guts... :cool:

    Gotta love those Ultra Locks-- don't misread me, TriAD is the gold standard, but Ultra Locks will always have a special place in my heart <and pockets>...:thumbup:

    apologize for the bad indoor lighting...maybe I'll get some real cheescake shots from outdoors tomorrow PM...if I get any requests, ;) hahaha

    I still want to know what it is before I buy a pocket bushman and a canned ham.

    Hold Out 3. Blade and clip acid etched. Screws, pivot and back lock heat-pimped. Loved it already before, now perfect. It took me like an hour
