    Yes... it's smooth and flush... but doesn't show up well in the one pic I took...

    A recent request came in to slightly alter the butt of the Lil'Para to more resemble the Dragonfly 2's. The requester desired that flowing line of the DF2 butt profile and closed blade be brought to the larger Delica/Lil'Para... with a secondary want of reducing butt pocket protrusion while employing a deep carry pocket clip. The attached vector drawing and CAD renders are the result...

    A prototype machining will follow shortly...

    I recently broke my left elbow, left wrist and also tore ligaments in the wrist. The recovery and healing is going more slowly than I'd like... with a prognosis of several months yet for full recovery. Lots of physical rehab with more to look forward to. Actually I do not look forward to those session as they are torturous. I just got out of the wrist cast last Thursday and I have zero strength and very little ability to move my wrist. Ligaments have no vascular supply and are very slow to heal so I'm told.

    I need to regain sufficient strength and dexterity to have the ability to tighten and loosen the spindle collet for changing bits. That's my short term goal. It's going to be a week to week deal for just when I will be able to accomplish that. I have a couple of jobs on the whiteboard that I have been relying on a friend to do the physical stuff so that I can machine and complete those requests. Not ideal... but it's better than total entropy.

    I will certainly post when I'm back up and running and my books reopen...
