After seeing the fine work that Saw Filer did on his TL-29 (where he altered the screwdriver blade), I thought I would try one of my own.

Mine did not come out anywhere near as nice as his, but it was an interesting experiment. Bone is from Culpepper. I am planning to try something like this again.

Yes, that is the Marigold. It was kinda "pitty", so I just left it like that. Gives it some character...

Thanks for the comments everyone. I can't take credit for that idea, that was Saw Filer's genius

Ahh but you took it one step farther with the splendid idea of making it a sheepsfoot blade. I like it a lot. I'll be contacting you about this TL-29 I have... :lol: :lol:

Glenn, That's a great job you did with the screwdriver/wire stripper blade. I did the same thing, sorta'. I had a broken clip blade on an early model schrade 8 OT. I filed, like you, from the top down on the blade, and made my own version of a sheepsfoot. I didn't change out the scales though. You did really well on that ::nod:: . I like it! ::tu:: Dale H.
