Bryan, I would like to thank you for what you are doing for our brave men and women who are serving in harms way -- Thank you, sir! And welcome to iKnife Collector! Allow me to extend my offer of friendship, also. Please let me know if I can help you in any way as you get settled in around here.

I haven't yet Bryan .. just finished a leverlock for my daughter & have a few other irons in the fire. Intend to finish the presto up w/ black linen micarta scales. The spring is the hold-up @ the moment. Intend to order a couple mikov replacement springs & modify those to implement into the presto. Will certainly post pics when I make some further progress.

Thanks for the interest.

D ale.
