Jazz did you use a drill bit and press for that or some other means?

I used a round tip diamond bit for the side texture and a cylindrical bit for the edge thingies. Then, I just sanded with a few grits of paper down to 1500, then polished with some compound on a felt wheel. Dremel tools are simply indispensible. :D

I am new to Spyderco knives, and am awaiting my first, a digicam paramilitary, the first time i held it, i knew, it felt like the missing link to my own hand.

Problem is, i prefer tip up carry. I am wondering if it is at all possible to find a wire clip on its own without having to take it off another knife? If not, what relatively inexpensive knife has a wire clip i could purchase? I plan to try and fix a wire clip through the lanyard hole of my para, is this at all possible?

I apologize if this was the wrong thread to ask this question. If so please direct me in the right direction lol

hey Jazz, you seem to be very good with all your work youve done,

heres a challenge for you if youre up to it, do you think you can take a fully serrated D4 and shape the blade to be like a Jester?

i did some tracing of the blade and i think it can be done, what do you think ?

It would be similar, I think. You just need some round files to get the curve right, or a Dremel with Diamond tips. Sorry, I'm not comfortable enough with my skills yet to wreck someone else's knife. My mods still get scratched up a bit.

Thanks! I have some videos showing various steps of the process, but none that really put the whole thing together. It really is not very exciting and I never really thought it warranted its own video.

For these it is just a few steps:
1. Conceptualize a pattern you think you might like (sometimes wise to practice on mild steel stock).
2. Remove the lock bar
3. Secure it in a vice
4a. Get a couple files (the most I have used on a single project is 2 or 3 files) and start filing.
4b. You will want to keep your angles and spacing consistent.
5. Re-install the lock bar (I do have a video on this).

Step 1 sometimes takes weeks, but the remaining steps rarely take more than an hour.

Also, realize that this is the lock bar which is arguably the most important component of the knife. Proceed with caution!
Thanks,
Ken (my real name)
