I know suingab's work already and looking at his stuff nearly makes me want to quit doing scales, it's just like, c'mon, I could never do anything like that :P

Your flooring material is looking interesting indeed but for bamboo even the cutting boards are suitable.
For cutting boards they are not that good actually because bamboo contains a lot of minerals wich dull a blade quite quickly. It doesn't have to be stabilized neither for scales but that two-color look is looking great for sure.

Right now I don't have to buy any material though, I use what I have, find or get for free.
Those scales were made for a co-worker's brother who's working at a zoo, we'll see if that'll get me some stuff to play with. First I want to finish a 4yo project, scales for a switchblade from the ~70s or so.

Intergral handle but same as the blade not stainless and the blade is pinned into the mechanism.
I'd love to get a copy in stainless steel and with a chance to disassemble it, maybe the chinese must see it first ;)

I've been testing some materials I have to replace some plastic scales and I found that compressed (200kg/m²) cork feels really nice in the hand but is not rigid enough.
So I paired it up with some composite panel, not sure what it is.
And it feels really nice in the hand, but I'm thinking some PCB panel may also work.

Still unfinished.

Pretty knife, way too heavy and pry-bar-ish blade. Swings out but doesn't really flip

Reground the main bevel and the swedge to a hollow grind (appr. 8"-9" wheel, I can check it if anyone cares)

Now it flips like a dream and cuts well. It will never be a slicer but now it's usable :)

First I covered the scale with packing tape, then I cut the pattern, removed the rays, spayed it with paint, carefully cut the paint at the tape's eges, removed all the tape, threw it into the acid.

I think I should re-etch scale and blade for 15 mins and stonewash it, polished surfaces love fingerprints.

How about this 710?
And this 702?

No SKU as I didn't find the golden pin and washer version with clip on fasttech.[/quote]




This one is an eye catcher!
