    Up and Down the grits we go
    Where it ends, the scratches know
    Oh they hide their ugly bits
    Until the end, those little shits

    Not to get too distracted from the oohing and aahing for the Smokestack Bullnose ;) (which is certainly worth the high acclaim) but willing to pause on the applause to inquire, what you have heard from the new owner of this recently completed beauty?

    Been wonderin'

    That order was made with the intention of giving it to a nephew as a graduation gift. The last I heard from him was "I don't know if I'm gonna be able to give this up". He'll be in town next week, I'll have to ask if it ever made it to his nephew!

    John, I think you need to make another just like that one so that everyone gets one.

    Maroon micarta has always been my favorite and I've never noticed any difference in the color until now. This piece has a lot of black striations that give a nice effect and goes great with the black leather. This came from an 11 pound box of random end cuts that I got from USAknifemaker, I wish I had a full slab of it.

    That looks like the stuff Jared, I really like the look of it.

    Usaknifemaker sells 11 pound boxes of random cutoffs of micarta and G10, most of which is at least one inch wide and all different thicknesses (great for spacers, not too great for scales). It's a cheap way to get a variety of colors without having to buy full sheets or scale sets, which can get expensive quick. It's jist a crap shoot of what you get. Me, Tim, and knife1987 split 22 pounds of it and it worked out well.

    To make a long story longer, that's where I got this maroon micarta from. The thinner pieces seem like normal maroon, but the thicker pieces have that dark look, I really like it.

    To make the long story even longer, I have a lot of Black and OD micarta just over an inch if anyone needs some for a project.

    Here's a link to the endcuts

    You can request email notification on that page for when it comes in stock, might take a while.
