I personally love the Endura handle in any grip, but still what I´ve found:
I did not mention this but it is a good point. I used a diamond hone by hand. I kept the handle moist to keep down dust and I wore an N95 mask (it is what I had). I was afraid a dremel or etc would put too much dust in the air and it would take it down too quickly for me to test at each stage. But, yes, the dust could be harmful so anyone modding should take precautions.
Looks great. It does make a huge difference, doesn't it? The trick is to take it down just a little, see how it feels, take it down some more, repeat until it feels good, otherwise it can be taken down too far very easily.foofie wrote: ↑Sat Aug 01, 2020 5:21 pmI do not have 2XL hands (more like L), and the first bump on both the endura and delica made the knives so uncomfortable that I could never keep any of them. Then I heard about this mod - and it really works! Not to oversell it - but it made a night/day difference for me, such that I am buying enduras and delicas now. It doesn't take much - not even 5 minutes with a dremel to knock off the bump.
Yes, only a little bit makes a huge difference.rak2 wrote: ↑Sat Aug 08, 2020 6:47 amThanks for the tip! What worked for me was a couple of minutes with some 600 sandpaper to remove the 'pointyness' / sharpness of the points. Not even sure I can tell the difference in the profile visually. The hump is not gone at all, just has less of a 'digging into my skin' feeling. Also have an Endella and love the feel of that handle (small hands) but this simple adjustment on the Endura will make it more difficult to decide which to use/carry. rak2
