Thanks for the comments fella's

I was sad to ship that knife back, I really like the way the handle extension gave some other options from holding the knife.

Looks pretty good, could you just add a pic of it closed? Would like to get an imagination of the folder closed, impact tool... :D Many thanks!

Beautiful!!!

I love it!! I just started carrying my first generation PE Calypso Jr. yesterday.
Does the G10 add some decent weight to the knife? I wish that mine was slightly heavier for ease in spyder dropping. And I love G10. I need some G10!!!!

Very nice Tricod!


God bless!

Well, we had a few requests for photos of the knife closed as well as for the closeup of the jimping (I have had some questions in PM) so I thought I would answer the call. I forgot to take any photos of the jimping before I shipped it out so please excuse the blurry edit and the poor photo.

Oh and I do the Jimping on a horizontal mill with two dremel cutoff wheels mounted with a spacer in between. It works pretty well. Although I think I have found a way to make the size of the jimping smaller which should make it a little gripper. Going to practice some today to see if it works :)

Nice knife and nice work! Thanks for sharing. That G10 looks great. Does it rip your pocket all up?
- best wishes, Jazz.

Thanks for the extra pics tricod...

no it doesn't rip my pocket... so far atleast. Could always sand down the place where the clip meets the handle though
