I noticed there was some talk about the WEPS on a Ukrainian knife forum here. And of course the WEPS is discussed on many other knife forums as well. (Now we're on the subject, is it an idea to make a category on this forum, "The WEPS on other forums", in which people can point out discussions on other forums?)

Somebody on the Dutch knife forum recently made a lot of modifications and combined his Wicked Edge/Gatco (ideas). He was inspired by the recent modifications posted on this forum. Here are the links:

Of course it's in Dutch, but there are a lot of pictures and maybe Google translate can help.

Would it be possible to link that in a way that doesn't require me to create an account?

Guys, sorry about that. I didn't realize it requires an account. I'll see what I can do about it.

It seems he posted about his first version in bladeforums.com. So if you're curious to see photos of his first version, you can go here (no registration required for bladeforums.com):
www.bladeforums.com/forums/showthread.php/963074-Wicked-Gatco

His second version, I didn't see on bladeforums.com (but I didn't look very hard). In his second version, he replaces the universal joints with spherical rod-ends (ball-and-socket joints). Apparently, he was inspired by the new design that Clay's working on, which uses spherical rod-ends.

Oh, and yay for Google Translate. :)

Sincerely,

Thanks, Anthony. I didn't know the posts were on Bladeforums as well. I emailed the mod of the Dutch forum, but he was happy, since he had gotten a few new registrations from the US... B)
