    IMG_20190526_155128-01.jpeg Maybe not "heavily" modified, but I'll open with my #0017 Junglas 2 with TKC scales and added finger choil ;)

    Dude, that finger choil looks PERFECT.
    IMHO, that makes for the PERFECT junglas or j2.

    I might do something similar and add a clip point... :-D

    What is the diameter of your finger choil? Did you use something, like a quarter?

    It's a one inch (25 mm) diameter. I used a die grinder with a one inch sandpaper drum, after roughing it out with an angle grinder. Marked it on a piece of masking tape, using a piece of 25 mm rod as a template :)

    Why would you add a clip point to a Junglas, just curious? :)

    Ill jump in here, as a fan of the CM6, the clip point is a great way to shave a spark off a ferro rod. Also very stabby looking. Mostly looks but can be useful in my opinion.

    If i had a need for that yes. The junglas for me is a farm fro and wouldn't be wise to thin out the top for that use. I could see a choil and a clip point being useful on the J2.

    Id probably make fun on someone who did it to be honest but then again it would look cool so there is that.

    I dunno...maybe just the last inch or so on a junglas, taken down to a clip point. Still gives plenty to baton, could be used for fine work with a little practice if it were the only blade handy.

    A clip point doesnt have to be sharpened, nor does it have to be thinned, technically, although at some point your clip point and swedge definition will overlap

    That's pretty mean!

    How did I somehow know what color it would be before I saw the picture?

    LOL
