Half Handle Freestyle, Modded blade
« on: April 24, 2020, 02:43:00 PM »
Actually I think I have seen this somewhere before...
My take on a half Freestyle. Bought it cheap as the other handle's springs are broken. Pliers went to repair a Skeletool.
Added some tools at the back. Scissor and a large screw driver as a light prying too. No alteration to the tools needed, they become a slip joint implements due to the springs.
And of course it wouldn't be my mod if I didn't do something to the blade..
I had always prefered smaller, utility kind of blades. Wharncliffe are my favourites! This was a standard half serrated blade. I had almost wanted to do a full serration again as I kinda dislike the idea of 2 different kind of sharpening methods on a single blade. I am pretty good at sharpening serrations now.. Those serrations cut better than the plain edge...
Some light tools. Lanyard loop is more of a space filler...
No alteration to the tools needed. I can make them go in deeper into the handle with some grinding but I dun see it as a problem now. Not sure how long this will stay, so keeping them as stock now.
The added implements all points to the correct direction when they are deployed.
