Case Congress mod; blade drops.

Had this congress out for a look yesterday, and remebered yet again that I need to fix it. Little time to kill later and I took it to the shop, finally got it done! Only been 2.5 years since I bought it, that it’s been bugging me…. ha!
Before;
After;
Dropped the kicks(little corner of the blade tang that sits on the spring and sets the closed position stop depth) on the coping and large sheep’s foot blade. Then cropped the coping blade tip down even with the spine of the sheep’s foot. Had a angular coping, then a semi lambsfoot, but liked the look of a sheep’s foot the most so I went with that.
MUCH more comfortable to hold now, and looks better ta’boot! They now sit at about the same level as the two spear/pen blades.
It also needs two more access notches in the liners/bone for the two long blades cut in, like were provided for the smaller ones. But as is, I can open them OK for now.
I love the look and concept of this knife and it’s blades, but never carry it much… It just never really “clicked” for me. Hopefully now that I’ve made it more comfortable to hold/use, that will change, and I will carry it more.

  1. Yeah, it does look more comfortable after you adjusted it.
