    I've been working this modification in the Modulator design for several weeks now. I finally have all the tweeaks/changes/improvements in place. This is what it all looks like in the computer on the CAD side:

    And in the machine........I still have to do some more machining to this toolplate in order to be able to make blades on it. Fortunately I have a good supply of blades on-hand, so that can wait for a while. I am really looking forward to seeing this knife with Matt's pivots and screws, and a new inlay shape similar to the Overkill. This new Modulator will bring real continuity to the Q Series!!

    If you look at the pivot hole of the LH part, you will see a faint ring around it. That's a plug I had to install and re-machine because I stuck a 1/4" endmill right into the toolplate at high speed yesterday.

    Missed Blade but procured one of the new Modulators that you took to Atlanta.
    Love Matt's big pivot face and the finishing on the screws is jewel like.
    Love my Q-36, but after lusting after a Modulator for years, finally having one in hand, it's just about perfect (for me).
    Looking forward to some inlays!

    EDIT: Adding some pics for those who have not seen the new Modulator in person

    The new pivot and screws does make a great knife nicer. I like the backspacer and newer screwless design as well.
