    Cool... that koa is going to look awesome. I'm waiting for glue to dry on mine as well... decided to go with the red/black micarta I made.

    Mr K should be gluing up my Amendoin wood scales for my LRK+ - some of us are not as "crafty" as others, but I still enjoy seeing your wip pictures -

    Amendoin (pronounced amen-doe-eeen) is a hardwood from south america with a very tight grain and really beautiful graining, not burl or anyhing, but it is harder than red oak, but less hard than Brazilian Cherry -

    We used this on our floor and had quite a few pieces of 3/4" slats left over - I brought some to John and I have a few pieces here as well if someone wanted enough to scale a blade.

    Here is a shot of the floor while it was in progress -

    Yeah,what Todd said.
    I am jealous of you guys getting to do your scales already.
    I'll be getting my satin LRK this month though,then I can have at it.
    Nice using your home made Micarta PG,that'll be a knife to be proud of.

    And Todd,I prefer potato chips on my Ham & Cheese sandwich.

    And now it is done. The heat treat finish was rubbing off in spots, so I decided to lightly sand it off. Sorry for all the photos, but I'm pretty proud of how it came out













    That was really fun... so fun that I ordered another LRK+
