    **WARNING** DUMB IDEA ALERT **WARNING**

    Ok, I know its a dumb idea but I'm throwing it out there.

    I love everything about my Kershaw Blur with the tanto blade. I love the mechanism, the grip, the feel in hand, how it carries...for real...its my favorite. Its not the most expensive knife I have, or the fanciest...but it just WORKS for me.


    I JUUUUST wish it had a Damascus blade. If it were available with a tanto Damascus blade...perfection to me.

    Anybody ever tried to make a blade from a blank to work in a factory pocket knife? I'm no metal worker so its beyond my capability, but is this something a guy could possibly get a knife maker to tackle at a reasonable price? I'm thinking if a blade maker were up to it, I could provide a new donor knife to use the mechanism/body from and then they could use the blade as a template to make a new blade.
    Is this just the dumbest idea yall have heard from me yet...or something worth pursuing?

    Hey, if it's stupid and it works, it ain't stupid. :drunk2:

    I see it as no different from customizing a favorite firearm. :thumb:

    Nope. Not stupid at all. Never thought about it, but I'm sure some of our knife makers out there could handle this. I'd be anxious to see the "before" and "after"!

    I wonder what somebody would want for a blade? I have no idea if this is a $100 idea, $500 idea or $1,000 idea.
