    Wharncliff Blade

    Hello Guy's & Girl's!

    Okay,got a issue...I have the Kershaw 'Needs Work' knife, and aside from the damn handle,i love it.

    So......

    Does anyone know who makes a Wharncliff blade knife,in a reasonable price range ($100 +/-),&where I can get one.

    Or......

    Is there any one on this forum,or outside of it who can replace the Kershaw 'Needs Work' knife's shitty plastic handle slabs with Micarta or G-10,or even something with that skateboarder 'grip tape' inserts that my Kershaw 'Blur' has,for a reasonable price?
    Even if someone makes/made them,I can put 'em on.

    And next...does anyone make a stronger 'assisted opening' spring for the NW knife,or know how I can bend the one it has to make the opening a little more,stronger,I guess is the word. More like the nice,strong snap of the 'Blur' or a nice Dalton ect. Nice,strong 'SNAP',ya' know?

    I appreciate each & every one of you who took the time to read this,and all suggestions are appreciated

    The wharncliffe is my favorite profile. Makers just don't make enough of them IMO.

    How about the Spyderco Centofante

    SocomElite...

    Maybe,again,if the handle was different. Looks like plasitic if some sort-do you know if it is? Do you have one? Is the lock like the old '70's lockback knives? I cant tell.

    Yep,Wharncliff knives are kinda nice for actual work,tho it isn't my 'primary' knife for self defense,I do carry it daily,as I do my leatherman-different tools for different jobs...I have a CSM gear 'Tactical waistpack' (It is not a 'fanny pack,bcuz fanny packis ghey. This is 'Tactical',and therefor,'Manly'
    and the thing is packed full of leathermans,knives,IFAK crap,JIC ya know,contact lenses,renew drops for said contacts ect.

    anyhoo, I love the Kershaw take on the Wharncliff blade shape. I had looked also at a Blackhawk wharncliff model which I cannot,for the life of me,remember now,but I heard it didnt get good feedback,so have not considered it any further.

    nice to know another Wharncliff blade fans here SocomElite,& thank you for the reply

    Yea, the handle in the Spyderco is FRN (plastic) and it does have a lock back. Not my favorite lock, but they work. The Blackhawk is called Be Wharned or something like that.

    My favorite would either be my Lg Sebenza

    Stolen pic

    or a BM 425 if I could find one less then $200


    Also Boker makes a couple different ones so check them out

    Kershaw makes a G-10 version of the Needs Work. I know that you probably don't want to buy the same knife again, but it is an option.

    The G-10 version is perfect! Didnt know they had one.

    Frisky,can you make me handles like that? I took it apart,and it has cut-outs and stuff, and all I can think the one is for is the spring assist thing.I would be glad to pay you for your work and materials if you could do it. If not,i would probably try to find the one in the post,if it is still made.

    Why they EVER made it with that cheap handle i will never know. It isnt typical Kershaw quality i have grown to know.

    Thanks everyone!

    OP didn't specify . . .

    If it doesn't have to be a folder I would suggest one of the Wharncliffe models from Bark River. The Imp, the Lil' Carver or the Microtusk seem to be very well thought out designs. Mike Stewart can probably fill you in on details of steel and construction.

    Not folders, and not exactly Wharnies, but maybe close enough....
