Well, I do own a real large seb 21. I think it is not smart to change anything on a real one. You may break the value. Still I am also excited about this.Looks like a cool project. As long as you didn't buy the fake instead of the real thing, I don't see the big deal. I know a lot of people can't afford a $400+ dollar knife though. I wouldn't mod the real Large either.
Keep us updated on it, can't wait to see it. =]
Why didn't you just get this maker to produce you a whole new knife ? The reblading of a fake Sebenza is just silly.
I think he's partly making it himself, it's not a custom. As far as I understand it, he wanted a Sebby-style ti handle(and even though he owns a Sebby already, he wasn't buying a 2nd just to dismantle it for his Frankenknife), with a damascus "spanto" blade that he's making himself(then having professionally heat treated) out of that bar of steel he bought.
I can tell you that I plane to do it myself in the first place. Then I realize it is too hard for me. That time I already bought that steel. So you guess what? I should throw that steel away and find some one to built me a brand new one? I think that's what people called silly.
I am just sharing my thought and idea. Not to let anyone step on it. Are you from knifeedgeforums? I see you are from Taiwan too. Let me tell you: I don't care what you think about K.John's knife, I don't care who you are. I just want to let you know that you don't have any right to Attack my thought.
Pleas understand that. If you don't like this. <<<<Leave>>>>!!!
I am really tired of this. I am getting attack everywhere. Why don't keep this thing back in Taiwan? Is that so fun for a Taiwanese attack another Taiwanese abroad??? Be mature don't be like a child.
Again I am sorry. I think I let emotion effect my mind too much.Give the steel you have to the maker and ask them to make a new handle as well as a blade. That would be the smart thing to do.
I'm not Taiwanese by the way and I know just who you are so keep the victomised attitude out of here as well as your fake knives.
Again I am sorry. I think I let emotion effect my mind too much.
I think there is nothing wrong to use what I have, not to us what "I am going to have." I already bought that knife and that steel. And there is noway for me to return them, even if I want to. So I put them to use.
