    I had seen a few examples of the Rajah by Cold Steel that were customized.
    I have the 1 & 2 models and they are likely the best tool for S/D that is concealable [ yes,even on my frame ].
    I am looking for someone RELIABLE to do the work on my 2 blades.
    They will be carried and used for city & woods use.
    Light chopping as that is not my intended use of a cutting tool.
    Thanks for any help.
    I greatly prefer those who can show me what they have done in the past.
    So I know what to expect.

    Years back I'd serviced a deceased custom makers auto that didn't open on the button release. Made me nervous to have it in pieces since I wasn't the maker and if I fudged it up I'm on the hook to the owner. Was a great learning experience. Cleaned up the body and MOP inlays in the process. The collector/owner sold it for $2.5K following.

    I've been hoping to find some of my mentor's used knives that I can refurbish. They don't come up for sale though. My tribute to a man who left a lasting impression in my days in the custom knife industry.

    I saw some great looking models that had been mod'ed on youtube.

    I tried to contact that party but he never got back to me.

    They were given scallops with a dremel and then done to the back of the blade too.

    Actions were slicked up a bit too and all edges were softened to remove all edges.

    I generally wear BDU's [ they look casual on old men ] and that blade fits in the back pocket all too well.
