I have a weakness for the spear point knives and recently bought a new Douk Douk squirrel. It is kind of the definition of a utility knife. The thing is French-made and simplicity itself. Blade/backspring/rivets/handle(s)/bail. I like the carbon steel blade, but I found myself wondering if anyone has replaced the handle/handles, which are stamped and folded steel. I can imagine this knife as a slip-joint with a handles. It would probably be cost prohibitive, but has anyone done this or had this done? Curious.
