    This one completely changes my outlook on the 51 for sure. It's absolutely gorgeous. I wouldn't think twice if these were available in this configuration. Awesome mod!!

    Thanks! Glad y'all like it....I certainly do. McAhron rocked it. The looks, the weight and feel, and the tolerances with the bushings all are awesome!

    P.s. I cleared my inbox so should be able to receive PM's now. I will say that if you are looking for price you'd be best off talking to McAhron himself as this was quite a while ago and sometimes prices can change over time with demand and experience. I got this project quoted by a few different makers and he was the most reasonably priced and I can tell you the total cost wasn't anywhere near as much as the 51-121's price tag.

    Holy mother fucking shit! That's the baddest ass looking 51 mod I've seen yet. I'm going to steal your design and have McAhron make me one too.

    As positive as the responses are, have you considered making a batch of handles for the 51 and selling them to us for self installation? I think I'd be down for a set.

    I cant do them without the liners as they need to be ground flush to the liners.Even a couple hundredths of an inch makes them rub.Waterjet cutting would solve the tolerance issue but I cant afford to do it.:ropeman:

    Since the 51's were mass produced, shouldnt the dimensions be the same, knife to knife. If you were to take a stock 51 as a blueprint, grind all the handles and drill all the holes to match, shouldn't that work for all of our 51's?

    They have to be ground flush to the liners witch reduces the size of the liners a tiny little bit,but doing it over and over again would cause each handle to be smaller in succession as the master got smaller and smaller.

    Now this could persuade me to buy the 51! It would feel more like a knife and less of a toy!:ropeman:
