Meadowlark-2 / Delica-4 Blade Swap

Postby this_is_nascar » Tue Sep 27, 2016 3:58 pm

Can the blade of the ML be replaced with the blade of the Delica and work properly?

They are 2 different knives.

I understand that. Was wondering if it was ever attempted. They look close enough to possibly work.

Haven't tried it, but I'm pretty certain they won't work. They aren't really that similar- choil/no choil and it's almost certain that lock interfaces are completely different.

Similar question asked: viewtopic.php?f=14&t=70523

I tried today checking Endura VG10 FFG and Endura SuperBlue FFG. The lockbar interface did not fit if I swap just the blade, and that is of the same model.
