So these are made out of the uniforms a customer wore in Afghanistan, for the knife he carried there. He made the material, not me... I just mill stuff.




And we have some carbon fiber with dyed redwoodburl. Most of the dye didn't seem to penetrate, but there are some blue areas. Either way, nice looking set.




Ryan, I never got a chance to publicly praise you for making he those scales from my "micarta". I didn't realize you had posted a picture of them in this thread or I would have done this sooner. I was able to get them smoothed out some with a little bit of wet sanding and I couldn't be happier with your work.

I'm glad they worked out well for you. It was definitely a cool project.


Few more from this week.

Hmm... that doesn't look like a griptilian ;)

I think this will be my design for the 585/586. Going to be a couple weeks before I'm ready to start making them for people though. I want to live with this one a bit, see if it needs tweaking. Also waiting on a tool or two. I'll post some more stuff when it's ready.

The blade had to be stonewashed due to rust spots on the blade. Got it incredibly cheap for that reason :)

Bad back spacer?

I don't really know.
I disassembled the knife completely and then reassembled with my back spacer and scales.
Shazam!
We're good to go.

Here it is after being sanded to 2000 grit and polished with a white rouge.
