The Spydie-Sheep (mini-Sage mod)

Postby DigDug72 » Tue Nov 22, 2016 2:41 pm

Had this Sage1 for a couple years, and like it, but find it getting very little pocket time.
Modded the scales about a year ago - sanded thru the CF veneer to expose the G10, and contoured em.
Yesterday, decided to give her the ole choppy-chop. Went for a sheepsfoot-esque blade shape, and lengthwise wanted the bare miniumum handle length to still get a four finger grip. I was surprised by the lines - I really like the look of this chop. The tip is dropped significantly, which makes it way more useful for me as an edc.

Very nice! I have a spare Sage1 that might end up on the operating table :)

I'm not a modder, but if I were, I'd take my Sage1 and go to school on yours.

Badass. Like it a lot. Wish I had more balls to mod stuff. Are you carrying it more now?

Thanks man. So far it's forcing everything else out (at least of the coin pocket). Carrying as a backup in the 5th pocket, and I'm really loving it. Contemplating getting a Sage5 to try this on...

Well done, sir. You are getting to be very proficient at modding. :)

I like it. Looks quite practical and comfortable with the contouring of the handle.
