Knife Modification?

Hello,
I am enamored with the Kershaw Blurs. Have two. One for use and a more expensive version as a backup. This is just personal opinion so I am not disparaging anything or anyone's choices or designs. I just personally feel that a blur with an Axis like lock instead of the liner lock would be close to my idea of perfection FWIW.
Do any knifesmiths do conversion? Is it even possible?
Thanks for any opinions!

I think your best option would be determine what specific things about the Blur you like and then buy whichever Benchmade Axis Lock tickles your fancy.

Nope on both counts.

The Axis-Lock is patented by Benchmade so you don't see anyone else doing it much.

Here are some Benchmades to consider.
