    Yeah... found that one a while back... very limited in use. I was hoping for something a bit less "spikey" and more claw like... but I might be trying some of them for a hilt design too.

    So... if there are no claws from TCSS...

    Does anyone have any suggestions on stock ways to drop the MHS down to the Parks standard of .758" OD size? :) I don't mind using a 3/4" blade.

    MHS Claw update?

    Any chance of an update on MHS Claws?

    I've seen that they where removed pending new designs a while ago. I've now got a huge need for some and was wondering what my options where from TCSS? ...

    Hmmm... maybe.

    To my eye and my wife's, the TCSS blade has a more Green-ish colour to it.

    It definately doesn't match the wire. :)

    But I have to say... Tim, you make a darn nice blade. ...

    Yes, Parks uses EL Film. And yeah... like I said it might be an impossible find to match the colours. But I wanted to try. :)

    The TCSS blades are really nice. :P
