Klein Hawkbill Electricians Knife Conversion

Postby Plas62 » Mon Oct 01, 2012 12:10 am

Inspired by some of the beautiful work I've seen here. I tried my hand at some conversions, below are pic's of a Klein Hawkbill that I redone. I eliminated the screwdriver blade, modified the tang of the main blade to utilize the locking liner, made a rear bolster and re-handled in walnut from an old damaged gunstock I had lying around, also in the pic's is a Boker USA Congress I had picked up at a local Antique Store.

It looks good Jim.
You have to be careful, as I have said many times; customizing knives is way more addictive than just collecting them! :lol: :lol:

Image Too bad. You will know you are really addicted when you sell your safe queens to buy old broken knives just so you can repair them! :lol:
