    I used a round tip diamond bit for the side texture and a cylindrical bit for the edge thingies. Then, I just sanded with a few grits of paper down to 1500, then polished with some compound on a felt wheel. Dremel tools are simply indispensible.

    hey Jazz, you seem to be very good with all your work youve done,

    heres a challenge for you if youre up to it, do you think you can take a fully serrated D4 and shape the blade to be like a Jester?

    i did some tracing of the blade and i think it can be done, what do you think ?

    It would be similar, I think. You just need some round files to get the curve right, or a Dremel with Diamond tips. Sorry, I'm not comfortable enough with my skills yet to wreck someone else's knife. My mods still get scratched up a bit.

    - best wishes, Jazz.

    Lol that's a real Frankentenacious. You're running out of modding room on that knife, you'll soon need a new one.

    It looks pretty cool. I guess you're a fan of thumb studs.

    Thanks! I have some videos showing various steps of the process, but none that really put the whole thing together. It really is not very exciting and I never really thought it warranted its own video.

    For these it is just a few steps:
    1. Conceptualize a pattern you think you might like (sometimes wise to practice on mild steel stock).
    2. Remove the lock bar
    3. Secure it in a vice
    4a. Get a couple files (the most I have used on a single project is 2 or 3 files) and start filing.
    4b. You will want to keep your angles and spacing consistent.
    5. Re-install the lock bar (I do have a video on this).

    Step 1 sometimes takes weeks, but the remaining steps rarely take more than an hour.

    Also, realize that this is the lock bar which is arguably the most important component of the knife. Proceed with caution!
    Thanks,

    Does this count?

    I made a fixed version of the Military from G-11 and G-10 a while back....I call it the unit-tary

    It was a fun project and is now a nifty letter opener.

    Thanks, I am working on a folding version too. I have the pieces roughed out and ready to assemble and finish. I keep starting projects and then setting them aside for weeks (or longer). This one has been gathering dust since the 15th.
