More traditional knife blade modifications.

Yes, I’m on a roll lately. Lots of free time to kill in the shop in between other projects, and little things like this happen.

Took the top hump/bump off the spey on my ’47 stockman. No real useful gain here, just asthetics. Im not likely to ever need the hump there for its intended use (its a spacer, keeps the edge/tip away from important bits while you are speying/gelding livestock.) Now its simply a wide somewhat blunt spear point.

Before and after;

And then I did a mod I’d intended to do when I bought the knife recently.

Some of you will know of my search for the “perfect” pocket knife. A 3.5″ to 3.625″ stockman frame, 2 blades at opposite ends, a clip point, and sheepsfoot. Hard to find.

This is my most recent acquisition on that concept, a Rough Rider half stockman. 3.25″, clip and spey.

Turned out to be a very slim, trim knife, both blades on one spring, and extremely thin bkade stock. Call it a gentlemans version of what I’m after. — A touch too thin and light for my tastes, but not a problem, just not what I’m after.

Anyway, needed to bob the spey into a sheepsfoot.

Before and after;
