    A fellow devil was kind enough to part with #77 and I was lucky enough to get it. According to the info I have gotten, this one originally came with black/blue G-10 but it looks very much like black/green today. Not sure if the info is incorrect but it is what it is. As a collector, I appreciate the history and quality of original work. Having said that, I just had to try my hand at making a couple sets for this one. There is still a little sanding to do but they came out great! Those who have seen my mod work are probably not surprised. Just for the record, I contacted Mr. Hom about my desire to do some new G-10 for this knife some time ago.

    Also, doing the kind of mods I have done in the past is one thing but for me, these kinds of projects represent new territory and I have no plans at this time to sell after market parts without permission from the original makers of any knives.

    These came out awesome! The handles are a little thicker now and feel more substantial and the balance feels perfect.
