    Here's a special request from a customer for a Carbon Fiber Vantage,
    The hardest part was clearancing for the blade pivot and frame screws. There's a picture of an inverted stock scale on the right of the first picture to show what I mean.
    A Vantage is a nice, affordable, modern knife.

    That looks mighty fantastic as all get out! Wooo Whooo! Anybody make a titanium slab for one of these yet? Make it a ti framelock? That's what I wish I could do to mine.

    I did a pimp on one of my vantages and I didn't do the blade pivot deep enough so it fucked up the lockup and centering. not a big deal except I stripped the pivot screws head so now I can't take it back apart! ARGH!

    Tooth,Maybe you could cut a slot in it with a dremel cut off tool.Might be worth a shot.

    Is that $135 for the whole knife or just for the CF scales?

    The whole knife. For perfect scale fittment, they need to be finished installed.

    Would I be able to mail you a Vantage that I already own, and if so how much would it cost? Are you doing these in any other materials like G10 or micarta? Your work looks great.

    I could do that. CF would be $110 shipped. G-10 or micarta $85. Thanks for the compliment :)
