Has anyone actually put a dragonfly blade on a delica? Just wondering...

I did for the photo in the first post. It technically functions but there is a lot of slop in the blade and lock bar as things don’t match up correctly. You also have to use the Dragonfly pivot hardware as the Delica’s will not fit through the Dragonfly blade so this adds more play to the pivot area.
Wow, I thought it was just a good photoshop! I was actually initially impressed by it and was trying to find out if you started with a photo of you holding a Wharncliffe Dragonfly or a Delica, and then added the handle or the blade based on the shadows. I guess it looked so good because it was real haha!

Haha yea my photoshop skills are not that good so I just tried to fit them together to see the real deal! And it made me want one even more!

On the choil: I´ve said it many times before: The Ricasso of Endura/Endela/Delica is not really less comfortable or less safe to use than a dedicated choil (I do it all the time, in many tasks, with cold or wet or sweaty fingers - no problem at all!)
Plus, with the Ricasso (other than with a dedicated choil) your hand is close to the edge when NOT choking up...
Just my personal opinion of course. But there are SOO (too?) many "choiled" Spydies already...

Exactly. Leave the ricasso alone. It works perfectly as a choil, without catching on things. Buy a different knife is what I’d suggest. Just my opinion.
- best wishes, Jazz.

My version of a Delicafly, a salvaged D3 I bought with a broken tip and reground with a swedge added.

I use the ricasso on my Delicas all the time without any issue! Maybe we should be calling this knife the “Baby Jazz” ;)

Now we are three already and at least... ;)

That choking up on the Ricasso would be unsafe (or really uncomfortable) is one of those knife-myths I just don't get... and, with all due respect, but still: Maybe, just maybe, one of those knife myths that get repeated on and on by people who probably in some cases never seriously tried for themselves... :rolleyes:
