A thread about Congress knives elsewhere on the net got me to thinking about this knife again. One reason I don’t use it much is the funky spear/drop point large blade. Yes there are 3 other blades, but it still puts me off..
Decided since it seems that even not using it I’m apparently not parting with it, so modding it won’t matter, might as well make it more what I want it.
So I clipped it.
Had it perfect and decided to touch it up a tad… Yeah, then had to fix the over touch and lost 3/8″ of blade… lol.
So I have a medium to short clip blade. Still infinitely more useful to me than the funky spear.
Actually turned out better, since completely re-grinding the tip meant I could raise the tip a bit.
But anyway, I end with 3 different blade styles, plus 1 duplicate. Large sheepsfoot, small sheepsfoot, pen, and clip.
And then, after I had dropped the kicks and lowered blades a few months ago, the pulls were covered on the two big blades at the tips, and hard to access toward their bases.
Added 2 more of the easy open/nail access notches like the ones it had for the pen/coping blades.
Now all blades sit sunk low for comfortable grip, all open easy, and all are a profile I can use.
Will see how she works out to carry now!
