These are the only two anodized knives that I own -- a Chaparral and McBee. I anodized them myself with help from a buddy who does anodizing. Was very cool to learn to do this.
Holy **** those look amazing

The "Stealth" Chaparral is one of my favorite knives of all time, but never cared for the monotone color. In person, the color is closer to champagne.

I took the original black G10 scales and the original clip off of my Para 3. Then, I installed a set of Flytanium titanium scales and a Lynch clip.

Posted my SS Cara Cara 2 in the Byrd section but traffic is low there. This would be the same as a SS Endura.

Began life as a Bento Box Lil'Matriarch but became a PROMOD (profile modified) Mini Street Fighter 2 in jade G10 full contour scales with a fluted shell texture... jade G10 smooth flush back spacer. The d-bolts domes have been filed to a flatter convex profile and both the dbolts and Torx screws have been buffed to mirror finish.

Great work as always, boomer!

Question: could someone do a "skinny mod" Delica? Similar to the Shaman and Para 3 "skinny mods" ?

The only things I don't really love about the Delica are the points in the handle. From your pictures, it looks a lot like the liners don't actually have these points, but rather they're introduced by the scales.
I'm happiest with Micarta and Tool Steel.

Top four in rotation: K390 + GCM PM2, ZCarta Shaman, Crucarta PM2, K390 + GCM Straight Spine Stretch.

You are correct in that the stainless liners do not have the grip projections found on the scales. It would be a simple matter to 'skinny' the Delica/Lil'Matriarch profile. Simple but time consuming to make the CAD and CAM file changes needed.

Is that a repair, or intentional? It looks awesome!

I didn't do the mods but I am a fan of the Knivesplus acidwash/bronzehardware treatment on my Amalgam and Smock.

I bevel ground the G10 scales to provide a better pinch grip on my Magnacut Mule.

My PM2 (s110v) and Para 3 (Maxamet) mods

The flamed titanium on the Para 3 didn't show as much variety in color as I hoped for and the purple hardware doesn't pop as much as I thought either. Will be replacing the mx gear clip with a purple one from lynch clips that should work really well.
