    NeverMore1701, dude! That first one is great. I've never seen a benchmade like this. Could you tell us more about it and what you've done to it? Strong work :thumbsup:.

    Bingo. It was a fun project, and makes a very handy little neck knife.

    I picked it up for cheap here on GT from someone who didn't like the SOCP. When I got it, I could see why, it's a pretty terrible stock design. I didn't have a definite direction when I started on it, just dove in and started messing around.

    First I cut off the godawful ring, ground down the finger grooves that didn't quite fit my hand, and stripped the black coating off. Then I made some micarta out of a tan T-shirt and epoxied it on. I also lengthened the handle just a hair with the micarta. Not much, but enough to improve the feel a bit.

    Shaped the handle down to a pretty thin profile, ghetto jimped the blade shoulder on the spine, thoroughly dulled and rounded the spine, and very slowly cut the angle into the spine. That part took a while, as I could only do a very small bit at a time to keep the blade cool. Put a good edge on it, pressed out a kydex neck sheath, and am pretty happy with it.

    If I would have had a definite direction from the beginning it probably wouldn't have sat half-finished for several months, and some of the details might have ended up a bit cleaner, but I just wanted a project to mess around with, and it filled that role just fine, with the added bonus of turning out well enough for me.

    I agree with you, it was pretty terrible in stock form, at least I can use it for something now :supergrin:

    Did a couple more sheaths today, these I drilled for a tek-lok. Glad I found it laying around, I need to get one for each of my sheaths, they're awesome.

    Cheapo Wal-Mart special Winchester branded chinese fixed blade I've had for years, it takes a great edge, has been beat to crap, and hasn't let me down:

    Old Camillus boot knife I got when I was 10 or so, I really wish double edged knives were legal to carry in Texas, this one is just dandy (cleaned up the curve on the sheath after I took the pic):

    Guardian. I broke my sheath and Gerber replaced it free.

    Ah, I'm on the hunt for a nice BF edition Rift, missed the last one that came up by about 2 minutes.

    How do you like your Cuscadi scales? I'm seriously contemplating one for my ZT 301.

    Cuscadi does excellent work. The fit and finish are flawless. Since getting them, those two have gotten more pocket time than any others.
