Dyeing some scales, regrinding a profile, filework, lanyard work, applying some patina, aftermarket parts or full on steampunk rebuilding , whatever you're doing to your knife, your flashlight, your phone case, your necklace, your key fob, post it here and give the rest of us some ideas. Or, hell, maybe just give us something to look at while we're trapped indoors. That works too.
