The postman delivered a new EDC today .. SWEET !!!

However .. must be modded first. Going to lose those finger guards real quick.
Need to loosen up the lever also. Slightly too hard to lift up from the closed position. I intend to remove the lever & radius the appropriate surface. 

Will make a nice addition to the EDC club.

I picked up a shefield bowie blade and cross guard missing its scales for ten bucks this weekend, I guess thats my next project.

Comment by Michael Squier on March 12, 2015 at 20:27
