    I was wondering when you were going to get around to this. Look out, WT! Very cool. I've been trying to get WT to do a Ti/CF credit card knife but with no success. Maybe, your next edition CC knife...??

    Thanks! That is my Mini Legal EDC model, I scribed out the original design from the same template as the last one but added a 'poon tip!

    Thanks!

    A laminated CC Knife would be incredible, I will certainly consider that! (lol I'll be making plans later today knowing me)

    Thanks guys!


    Here's the description of the epoxy I used on this. (G-Flex) I use this on all of my knives with scales.

    A toughened, versatile, liquid epoxy for permanent waterproof bonding of fiberglass, ceramics, metals, plastics, damp and difficult-to-bond woods. With a modulus of elasticity of 150,000 PSI, it is a bit more flexible than standard epoxies and polyester, but much stiffer than adhesive sealants. This gives G/flex the ability to make structural bonds that can absorb the stress of expansion, contraction, shock and vibration. It is ideal for bonding dissimilar materials. It can be modified with West System fillers and additives, and used to wet-out fiberglass tapes and fabrics. Mixed at a 1:1 ratio, G/flex gives you 45 minutes of working time at room temperature. It reaches an initial cure in 7 to 10 hrs and full cure in 24 hrs.

    Looks good!

    I've made a few of these over the years but I've yet to try the G-Flex. One thing I've noticed is that when the adhesive bond fails it is almost always at the tip where it fails first. So if you want to do a test to see how well it holds press the tip against some wood with the G10 facing the wood...as if you are trying to peel the Ti. off. Some glues pop instantly, some hold pretty well.
