Of course someone has. I've made a bunch for the Becker knives and now I've got this ESEE 6HM that I'm deeply lustful for, at a primitive level. This could be the knife that brings me out of handle making retirement. I've got some ridiculous Fiddleback maple for the project. The reason for the thread, the holes and the hardware? What is the tool or tools used to get that hole and screw taper correct? Any thoughts and/or comments are welcome. Feel free to post up any picture's of custom jobs you have done or seen. Truth be told I'd buy a set if I could find what I wanted, Making these things is a dick punch.
