Looks like that thumb stud could be moved to the right (read: correct) side.

Yes I've already checked that out, the trouble is there is a recess on the other side for it to fit into.

As for thumstuds....I like ambi because you never know if you'll be dominant-incumbered when you really need blade deployment.


I watched a vid on You Tube where a fella demonstrated opening and closing a Leatherman Charge in lefty, so I've been practicing that and I've become proficient at it, not as neat as a righty doing it, but still pretty quick. laugh

Edited to add:
The bolsters are Mokume Gane. I love them and they don't seem to tarnish like brass.

If one HAS to do something...it's amazing what one can accomplish.

But my Sebenza had to have dual studs...I like the look and benefits of dual studs.

Hmmm.... Like N2K I need/want two studs for left/right deployment. Not critical, though, adaptability is a key strength.

Yep, better have dual studs just in case you need to use your weak hand.

I've noticed that a lot of 'gentleman' folders have a single stud.

On few occasions it has detracted me from buying a folder.
