    Hi everyone!

    So, I have had many requests from people who would like new micarta scales for their Field Knife. By special request, I am starting this thread to get a rough idea of what the actual demand is. If you would like to purchase a set of Natural or Black micarta scales for your original Field Knife (buffed or unbuffed), please chime in below. Purchase price with hardware and shipping would be $35.

    Thank you!
    Jo

    Kudos to you Jo for considering a special run of FK scales. From the choices you are offerring, I would buy one set of unbuffed natural and one set of unbuffed black. My wish list color would be OD green, but I understand that you are trying to keep it simple to make a small run worth your while.

    Thanks,

    Phil

    Good morning Jo. Thanks for considering a run of these!

    If this comes about I would buy a minimum of four sets of the standard choices. If antique edgecut does get offered, then at least two of those in addition to the others. Cheers, and thanks!
