Shown below are some modifications I made to my Benchmade model 42 balisong.  As you can see, I have removed the horns and sculpted the tang to a point.  This is fairly easy to do at home, assuming you have access to a Dremel tool with a cutting wheel attachment and some fine grit wet sandpaper to finish the job.  However, in order to make these alterations I had to remove the blade from the handles which voids Benchmade's warranty.   So, if you decide to take the plunge and give this a try, make sure you know what you're doing!

Here is a sweet looking blade modification made by a fellow Bladeforums member, 7Cain.  If I remember correctly, all he used to change his blade style was some sharpening stones.
