    I haven't been able to enjoy the mod yet since the blade was way off-center when I got everything put back together so I tightened it up quite a bit hoping I could back it off and things would straighten up. Unfortunately, I stripped the pivot screw. Got a new pivot screw and a few handle screws from Spyderco just haven't had a chance to get the stripped one out.

    My buddy locked himself out of his house and broke in with his Centofante 4.



    I was bored and made a few changes.









    It looks a little funky and I need to finish up the ass end, but it fits the hand well and cuts like a demon. I dig it.

    Yes. Even disregarding why the mod needed to be done the result is a knife I would like to own and use.

    Thats awesome man. I was actually looking around online today for a wharncliffe knife around that size.

    I decided I'd take the hump down on my Persistence after seeing someone do it to their Resilience.

    First I taped the blade to get a general idea as to what I'd like to do.


    Then, the Dremel came out. I used a cut-off wheel as a make-shift grinder. I did it this way because it was more controllable than using a full size grinder or bench grinder. I frequently dipped the blade in water to keep from ruining the temper.

    This is what I came up with after all the grinding was done. Disregard the smudges all over the place; they're from the water combined with a dirty rag to dry afterwards.


    All cleaned up.


    Here you can see a spot where I got careless with the Dremel and rode it down the side of the blade. It doesn't really bother me, but I might polish up the sides of the blade any way.


    Here's a shot of the spine after some 3200 grit paper. After this, I hit it with some Brasso on a piece of leather to further polish it.


    These Kevlar laced gloves came in handy when it came time to handle the knife.

    All in all, I like the mod. It could've been done more cleanly and carefully, though. I may just go back with some 180 grit and rework it since it's not quite as flat as I had wanted. I'd eventually work my way back up to the 3200 and do the sides at the same time.

    Here is another one of my mods. I took the clips off of my Endura and Delica and stripped them to the bare metal. I originally had intentions of polishing them, but I liked the beadblasted look a lot and decided to keep it.


    I think it looks really nice contrasting against the BRG scales on my ZDP Endura.



    Here's the Delica. I think it looks good on the Delica as well, somewhat blending in with the gray FRN.



    If anyone wanted to know, I used Jasco Paint and Epoxy Remover. It's nasty stuff, but dang does it work quickly and efficiently.

    Not too much of a mod but it made a world of difference for me. I removed the darn tassel thing that was on it and rounded out the the point on the end of the handle..I will be placing a low riding clip or a wire clip on it as soon as i get my dremel back from my brother in law. I had to use a saw and file that is on a multi-tool because i loaned out the dremel. The Terzuola was the only Spyderco that i have received that i was not too fond of but after removing, (INHO) the cheesy looking tassel, it has became one of my favorite knifes..
    Tassel and cheesy tassel nub removed.

    Rounded off the point on the end of the handle

    My Mods

    Here's a Sage CF that I re-profiled to more of a "Para-Milli" type blade as opposed to a "Leaf" profile.
    I also totally re-vamped a Chokwe that I got a great deal on ... I shortened the handle and blade more to my liking .... some of the "tradionalist Spyderco ppl" might gasp in horror, but I really enjoy making my mods and have used both knives extensively since.
    I also plan on putting a Spyderco pocket clip (a wire one like on my Sage) onto my new Schempp Damascus Delica and actually USING IT!
    Let the gasps of horror begin! mu-ha-ha-ha-ha!!
    Pictures to come!
    OK ... Finally ... Pic of the Schempp Delica! More modificationage!! I used a Sage II clip that I blued with a blow torch ... I used the lanyard hole for the clip bolt and Dremmeled out two channels for the clip to rest in ... I wish Sal would offer these with this clip configuration!

    Sage


    Chokwe


    Delica

    You... Sicko!! I'm kidding - they look great, and I believe you're the first to mod a Sage. I like the shape you made. Thanks for sharing.

    - best wishes, Jazz.
