Edit: (8-25-17) I think it would be cool to turn this thread into a Condor Hudson Bay Mods thread where everyone can post pictures of their mods in one place. Lets see your Mods to these cool knives! Post them up! This summer I decided that I wanted a larger knife to play with, and specifically got a Condor Hundson Bay Knife with the idea of doing some pretty substantial mods to it. Basically I got this knife as a project knife, and really like how it turned out. The first thing I did was to reprofile the blade. As can be seen in the comparison picture, (top picture reprofiled, bottom as it came from th factory) I ground the spine down to remove the hump and reprofiled the handle to fit my hand and make it more pleasing to the eye. I also ground the heel of the knife to have a larger radius which feels much better on my index finger. My wife says it now looks like a kitchen knife. LOL! After doing the mods to the blade the knife no longer fit the sheath and would just slide out when turned upside down. This was caused mostly by the removal of the hump from the spine of the blade. This meant that I needed to redo the sheath, which is something I was wanting to do anyways as even before the mods the fit was fairly loose. First thing I did was carefully pull out the stitching to the point where I wanted to cut off the excess sheath. Here you can see how I roughed out the new shape by cutting out this portion of the leather. After one side was cut I also cut the other side, then used a saddle stitch to back stitch the existing thread to lock it in place. Here it is after removal of both sides of the leather and stitching it back together. Once that was done I shortened the handle section of the sheath and will later use that cutoff for the strap to secure the blade in the sheath. Next thing to do is make up the strap and stitch it to the sheath. I made the holes for stitching and then cut a grove over the holes to recess the thread so that it does not get cut when putting the knife in the sheath. Finished sheath continued in the next post.
