Emerson Persian Frame Lock Conversion

First job to start off 2009 is this Emerson Persian that I converted from the standard factory liner lock to a beefy .140" thickness frame lock folder. It is 5.6 ounces of beauty here as shown. I've always loved the look of this particular Emerson but long thin lined folders that flex so easily have always scared me even when done by a great manufacturer like EKI. With the slab lock to make this baby more rigid than ever its a lot harder to flex and twist now than the factory clothes can possibly offer. I think it turned out quite well. As usual this one can be put right back to gether just as it came from the factory. Thanks for looking. . STR
