    Wow!

    Beautiful knife. I love that taper and shape.

    Is Gcarta some sort of mix of G10 and Micarta?

    Thanks, Fellas.
    @Molokai - it's the trade name for GL Hansen's laminates. It's essentially small-batch micarta, but "Micarta" is actually trademarked, tho we use the term like "Kleenex".

    Thanks. It’s definitely an appealing material. That handle looks very comfortable.

    Thanks for the link as well! Pretty neat story and history!

    Very nice work, bonus points for the use of material and theme. That handle looks great! I like denim “micarta” but it’s not always of the best quality, how did you find this Gcarta worked? It certainly finished well.
