If the cost of making that happen wasn't so much I'd probably own one just so I could then smooth over the points on the grip.

So Jazz, any chance you could tug on Sal's ear enough to get him to produce the Wharnie Delica in LC200 or H1? ;)

Here's a shot of the insides of the scales. There's plenty of room to get rid of the point. The steel liner is straight there. Get a wharnie and do it. I know you can. I've seen your cool Manix, bro, and Rock Lobster.

I'm sure I heard him mention it was a possibility. It would be cool.

Well, I'm in for at least one, and maybe even two if it happens.

If KW comes through on their pre-order I should have my first Jazzlica soon. I feel like I'm late to the party, but I wanted to wait for the Hap 40.

You're going to like it. :) You need to swap lock bars too. They're a tad different. That's it.

I'm just bumping this because the Photobucket pics are back, in case anyone hasn't seen the thread.

Still using the knife hard every day at work.

I want that too.
Still waiting to try it out (should have bought the s30v version when it dropped last year, oh well). I think it will be the perfect edition to my 3 knife carry. Native or para3 on the right, wharndelica on the left, hawkbill Dfly in the shirt pocket. I think I'd be ready for anything at that point. Although it's versatile enough to be a single carry too. Food knife, utility knife, SD. Heck it would work well as a dual carry knife with any DFly.... did I mention I can't wait to get my hands on one of these :D

It will be worth the wait. I really wish I liked the Hawkfly more, but I have lots of Dflies and one is modded to a wharnie.

Well that sounds like a saber grind Delica to me. The blade may not be a true sheepsfoot but the belly is so small it may as well be and the hollow grind has a very stout tip. I just sharpened one last night for a friend and I started getting nostalgic about owning one again. I think the blade shape on those knives is nearly perfect.

I am 100% on board for a wharnie or sheepsfoot Dragonfly. I would prefer that the grind stay as high as the standard version, I was a bit let down by how thick the hawkbill is.

I don't mind most sheepsfoot blades because I can easily grind the tip down to a wharnie. If they do it like the wharnie Delica with the slopes spine I'm less of a fan of that shape but I'd still he on board.

I'd be more inclined for the Yojimbo wharncliffe shape.

Remember this old thread D?

I think you were probably right about not changing the handle shape though.
