LM Wave mod and ??
« on: September 12, 2008, 07:43:51 PM »
I bit the bullet and picked-up a Wave today.  I was playing with it (of course) when it occurred to me I could very easily make the saw blade a one-hand opener.  What I did was attach a small piece of Velcro (stiff bristles) to the blade.  The Velcro had adhesive but I also needed to add a small drop of Superglue.  The best part is that its totally reversible.
Now two questions:  1- is it normal for the handles to come apart a little or do I need to tighten them up (if so, how?)
2- any idea on how to "wave" the main knife blade without cutting into the thumb grove?  I am afraid if I take the easy path and cut open the thumb hole it will weaken the blade.  If you don't know what I mean, I am referring to the way some Emerson and Syderco knives open.  This is not a huge deal but I am curious on your thoughts.

Some people have had success with the "ghetto wave" cable tie.

I'd have to say...

Don't do it, for the sake of multi nuts everywhere.

Waved blades are some bad rep. :(

What the heck is a one-handed saw for anyway? :D

Got those frog legs.

I one-hand the saw.....well....um.... because I can.  Do I NEED it...no, but what the hell.

I started using a Waved knife defensively, weak-side carry.  During a gun grabbed I had the ability to deploy the blade and start slashing immediately.  Truth is I grew to like the convenience of it.  I have small hands and usually need to re-grip a knife to open the blade (this includes autos and assisted blades), a waved blade requires no re-gripping.  SOOOO bottom line Im overly lazy and want the knife to do all the work for me.  I think Ill live without it on this tool.  Thanks for the reality check.

I find the LM Wave's saw is pretty easy to open one handed without velcro! Just put your thumb on the nail nick and open it like you would the knife!
