    I had been dealing with Jeffrey Distin @jsdistin over a blade delete and recover for one of my knives. Chemo-induced neuropathy is beginning to numb my fingertips making opening and manipulating some knives more difficult. Instead, he reworked this #15 making it easier to open, roughed up the mammoth ivory scales and just sent it to me as a gift.

    I was knocked over by this attention to my issues and generosity. He is a thoughtful and generous member of the porch.
    Thanks again, Jeff.

    Simulated nimble by @jsdistin :thumbsup: :) Nicely done Jeff. Take care @Mayonardo I've got some on and off aching digits knife issues too, so I can relate - A LITTLE. Mine is just age, no chemical destruction involved. Be well and keep using that great knife!

    I’m in my fight cancer mode. Had an infusion yesterday and since the steroids have not yet worn off I feeling good and “knifey” (that’s probably not a word… but knife nuts will understand).
    Jeff was so thoughtful to mod the blade and handle. I’m very grateful.

    Thanks @Mayonardo, and thanks everyone for the kind words. That was one of my earlier mods and was actually modded 3-4 different times with different covers and blade combos it was then waiting in my safe for a year or so until it found a good home, I’m glad it did.
