    Has anyone sent in a knife to AS to have the scales thinned out? I have a woodcrafter that is either a 4/5 or 5/5 and I really need it to be a 3/5 like my other two AS blades. Wasn't sure if they would take work like that on their blades and what it would cost. I know I can email them directly and ask but I know they are busy as it is working on customer orders so I thought I would try this route first to get an answer and not bother them.

    If I send it out I will probably have them make me a matching firesteel at the same time, not that I need one, I probably have like 10 fero rods already. Just like it when they match.

    We can thin a handle down for sure. Just send it in and I'll get it taken care of for you. Include a letter describing the knife, what you want done to it, and your return address. :)

    Hahahaha, right? I do think I have your old one, black micarta with yellow liners. She feels super fat compared to both my mountaineers.

    It wasn't mine. I just sold a white Corian that was a beauty because it was super fat. Oh well. New owner will be happy with it no doubt.

    This is one of the many reasons that I continue to spend my money with AS. You guys always take such good care of me when I need it.

    I have a Classic that is 5 and much prefer the thinner handle on my guide. I think it's a 3. How does reducing a 5 to a 3 affect the retention of the sheath???

    No doubt it would change but it's not difficult to wet form your sheath to fit.

    I agree with rcwells, he has some good before and after pictures of what wetforming will do.
