Case Congress Mods 3.0

Yes, again. Once you start its hard to leave anything alone!

Outer corners of the bolsters, end of the frame were a bit too pointy and uncomfortable in my palm when holding the knife.

So I rounded them off. 🙂

Before;

And after;

Smooth and comfortable now, and looks better too I think.

Little fine sanding still needed, I hit it with a scotchbrite pad to satin the newly ground areas to match the pocket wear. But it still needs some hand work with around 400 grit to blend it better. I’ll get around to it soon, as I have shop time..
I don’t have many square ended knife patterns, but hadn’t thought about it much– Seems I prefer the look, and feel of rounded bolsters for at the least one practical reason.
