I wonder if the Christy would be able to sit flush against the liner, between the bushings?

I wish some modder would figure out how to retrofit a Christy into 91mm scales. 
It would be handy to have a quick one hand sliding knife along with the multi-tools of the SAK.

Cool idea and nice pics FB! :like: :tu: :tu:

Then it could be called a Swiss Chris.....

A noble effort, Folder.  :tu:

But I beg the question, to what end is this being done? It seems a little self defeating in practice, taking a small almost forgettable size tool, and mating it to something much bigger and bulkier than itself. Kind of like welding a North American Arms mini revolver to a Colt 1911. The whole beauty of the Christy is its tiny size and cutting ability that punches so well above its weight class, and can be dropped into even a light weight shirt pocket. Or even tucked in a hatband, or slipped into the seam of a shirt. (don't ask me how I know.)


Don't get too serious, just enough will do.

My thought was I really like that sliding blade and if I couple it with a thin SAK (something with an opening layer and maybe an inline Philips, something custom), that I wouldn't have to have a blade layer in the SAK, just a handy Christy slider at the ready for one-hand operation.

Though I do understand your point about it taking away the simplicity of something so useful and slim.  I was just looking to couple it with another knife I like and would generally carry.

I'm soooo glad it got to you!

I was a little bit apprehensive about British customs/import of an edged tool into the kingdom.  I hope you come to appreciate and love them as much as I do! :tu:

I was a bit worried about British customs, so I filled out the customs form that it was a "Graphic Arts" tool or something like that. Outright subterfuge, but what the hey? I'm just glad it got through! :woohoo:

Maybe I have a new career in my retirement as a knife smuggler to the U.K.? :think:

Anything to spread the Christy love. The handiest little pocket knife you can have.

David, do an experiment.

Take the Christy, and drop it in your pocket while taking all other pocket knives our and stashing them. Try to go for a week with just the Christy in your pocket. Then, if you make it a week, do a second week. You may be surprised at how much the little sliding blade wonder will do in a normal urban/suburban life in the 21st century .

I do these experiments on a regular basis to keep a reality check. I'll go fir a week with just a classic, or a week with just a Leatherman squirt. Its amazing at what we don't really need, vs want.

Carl I'm in a Buck 110 Challenge so any experiments will have to wait.  :D   I have been playing with the Christy and like it well enough I ordered another. I'm not by nature a minimalist. I do like some small knives and they certainly have there place in the scheme of things.    :tu:
