    Yup. Handle is too small, blade geometry sucks, blade is too thick, tip is too thin. Pretty much a disaster of a knife in every way possible. But for some reason I kinda like it. I'll never carry it again, mind you. Maybe I should give it away. But not yet.

    Dunefan, that is a sweet knife.

    I just got a prospective order from a MacGregor and I've decided I have a really neat idea for clan specific, and military tartans (or military colors)-

    Thin spacers stacked with slightly thinner micarta. or possibly even spacers on one side. For a MacGregor I'd do, for example, a black handle with a red/green/blade/green/red sandwich (the blade being the "white")

    For a Navy I'd definitely use black micarta and use blue and gold or the blue/red/white/red/blue for the tartan style. Jarheads would get the standard yellow and red, but of course.....

    Cool idea. Could you do one with blue micarta and white spacers? There is a tradition in the military of having a unit coin with you at all times. I wonder if a coin could be mounted in the handle (recessed and epoxied)--most unit coins are the size of a silver dollar. Maybe this Winter....

    blue and white would work out well. I'd have to get exact dimensions on a challenge coin I've got a few from quarter to big old half dollar sized. I think it wouuld work fine, as long as it fint dimensionally.

    I checked a couple of my coins against the Sgian Dubh--no go.



    Too bad, it's kind of a cool idea. And you'd never be buying drinks. I still think blue and white would be cool.

    That one is definitely big. you could make it work as a custom, though it would be awkward.

    And what does it look like BEFORE all that? Here's an order I'm finishing up for a chrome dome on the forums.

    Here's a work in progress- doing one with ipe for a handle.

    the photos are wet with linseed oil as the knife was coming out of its first soak.
