Handle swaps

Postby ManekUEMF » Tue Apr 19, 2016 8:51 pm

Hey guys. Does anyone know if the handles from a FRN Delica 4 and a G10 Meadowlark 2 are interchangeable w/out damaging either knife? I'd like to put a Delica blade in the ML handle.

Sal has responded last time regarding same idea for Endura - Cara Cara swap. There're many differences in dimensions and not recommended. It is likely Delica - Meadowlark is the same case.

Unless one is willing to risk tinkering and hand adjusting it, which might or might not work. I don't have my Cara Cara anymore so I can't compare the dimensions. From what I remember, the distance from pivot to lockbar release is different to start with.

Why do you need to do that? If it's the finger choil, someone has done modifying a Delica. Try googling Delica wood choil. ;)

Hi ManekUKMF,

Not even close. Two entirely different designs.
