    Fox Vox Core. Flipper delete and stippling added to scales for better grip. Flipper doesn't work well on this model because it's too far back from pivot and angled. Detent is great and hole opener works well.

    Nothing too crazy, blackened a Millit clip and swapped it out for the stock CRK clip that comes on my Piranha Excalibur. I think it fits the lines of the knife much better:D

    It sure does! It matches really well, too. I'm guessing you blackened it with the WD-40 and butane torch method?

    Some anodizing I did a while ago but never posted. Sanded the bolsters a little to get that texture. Anodized the liners, too,
    but the color wasn't fantastic on the bead blast texture.

    The stonewashed handles were too slick for me so I gave it a beadblast for grip and then two-toned...flips SO much better now. Doesn't even feel too heavy now that I'm not worried about it flying out of my hand.

    Just waiting on the custom clip from Josh at @razor-edge-knives and this baby will be finished! I think it's coming along nicely so far though. :)

    I started with a HAP40 Delica Wharncliffe and added; Flytanium titanium scales, Flytanium titanium backspacer (anodized by BladesWeLove), and custom made, and anodized sleeves and screws for both sides (made by xxxadrenalinxxx).

    Thanks! I'm super excited! Josh being the awesome guy that he is, is going to put a custom semi-polished, stonewash finish on it so it matches the scales. :D
