Ground a finger choil- feels good man.
Very nice Daveho. Both mods are exactly what I was thinking of doing to one of my well used Delica 4's. Have you thought about some Jimping on the choil?

Very nice!
I will likely do the kahr thing when I drop this guy tip down.
I will add some jimping for sure, I just happened to have the die grinder out for cleaning up some welding I was doing.

Thanks kindly, it came out really well.
I need to sort the handle aswell but for now it works great.
Dave,

How did you do that? I only have diamond files, probably takes a very long time :( .

You made it into a little slicer with more control and even better esthetics.

Nice, I also like to straighten the spine on the ffg delicas for a finer point but instead of the swedge I round the corners of the spine so its nicer on the hand when pushing down on the blade.

Like you, I round the spine when I modify a knife, unless I want the arris for scraping. I can’t prove it, but I feel that a rounded spine passes through deep cuts with reduced drag compared with the same blade with a square spine. Katanas have beveled spines and I think this is why. Rounded spine also feels nice in pocket.
