"Terry, if you can figure out what kind of blade came off of it originally, it may be a good candidate for my blade replacement procedure as explained in my post made in this group yesterday.  You'd need to find a donor knife…"

"Terrry For this conversion .. a mill's not required !! It would make some things easier ..but.. a drill press will more than suffice. A pin vise will even do for the drilling of the scales. Might I inquire .. what did you ..OR.. do you do…"

"I agree with Dale.  I do not see value in the knife as it is but I see plenty of value in a single blade EDC making the knife usable again.  I love to see an old knife get a new life "
