Delica mods

Postby Daveho » Sun Feb 10, 2019 1:35 am

Love the old school straight spine delica and for a bit of flavour I have added a little swedge.
Not huge changes but a bit fun and make me think a little Paramilitary and a little dragonfly while retaining the ergos of the delica.
This delica has been around awhile so it’s scuffes up and sports a 17 degree bevel.

Nice job!
That swedge looks nice on it!
And I agree that the straight spine is nice.
I own an assisted knife and am embarrassed to admit I enjoy it.

I'm not sure if it's something I'd like for my Delica, but that looks like a clean swedge - well done!

Clean job. Do a good deed and mod one for me please :)

This was just done by hand on one of those lazy Sunday arvos.
Makes me want to get back into doing something in the shed.

I’ll be interested to see how the tip holds up.
I actually did leave a slight down turn to the tip but it’s more gradual than standard.
That said however I have always wanted a kahr delica..

Dave you’re a knife modifying machine. :cool:

You reckon you can mod that Stretch 2 of your to an original Stretch and send it back? ;)

After playing with this for the last few days tho most dramatic change is the tip boy is that guy pokie.
It makes me think of the blade on the clipitools a little.

Very good work, looks nice! Though actually I like the Delica (and Endura) especially for the stouter tip and am sometimes thinking of going the opposite way on my Millie - shaping the Tip more Endura-like.

If you do it some day please tell me how you modded the HANDLE (and added that hook on the rear end)... ;)

Looks good: I like the blade. Not too wild about the choil, but if it floats your boat, good for you.

Looks really well done Daveho. The job I did adding a choil to my Pacific Salt looks comically bad in comparison.
