    can you guy's RnD some Res-C slabs?
    I recently purchased an item that uses horse stall mats and I like it a lot, but I just know some Res-C slabs would be even better.

    You could have Garth cook some up in sheets (like the mats) and then cut, shape, and attach.

    I know this has been suggested before and I think you said "no", but KEEP DRINKING until you get to yes!!

    Thanks

    I always thought resin c handle slabs would be awesome !!!!!! I wonder if the flair tubes would hold them ??? But either way I like the way you think :)

    That's a great idea... I've used truck tire rubber before. I throw my knives and the rigid handle material is prone to bend the tube fasteners. A rubber like res-c might flex and bend before bending the tubes but it might get gnarled up. Just my 2 cents.

    Gah! That is nice Petey, but with slabs you can have a full handle. I love all Res-C: Mudder, Basic, Regulator but with slabs you can change handle length (6" etc). And put them on any model.

    I'd really like a reissue of some 1911 grips in micarta and g10.

    Everyone has a dream

    Some res over a g10 skeleton to keep it from moving around might be the way to go. Or maybe g-rexed?

    So, I wont name the other company in Jerrys forum, but the handles are glued and pinned. No problems, thats why I decided to suggest it, even though I believe its been suggested before...

    I've always thought this would be a great idea too. I have two large choppers with horse stall mat slabs and they are super comfortable to chop with. Res C would be even better.

    Yup...I think a full tang model just like mine would be a winner...

    especially with a bit of exposed square butt tang like on the SARsquatch...

    Of course the upside of a partial is that it is very light...it's my constant companion on my daypack :)

    I'm pretty sure that Resiprene C is a thermoplastic urethane elastomer, and it is injection molded directly onto the tang of the blade.

    I thought the tang was made to fit the handle.

    IIRC, when the BB13s were offered, Jerry said you couldn't get a black handle on the INFI version because it was .250" thick, and they didn't have black handles that would take a blade that thick. The BG, at .187, on the other hand, did come in black because they had black handles that could fit. It seems to me that if the handles were injection molded directly onto the tang, color wouldn't have made any difference.

    I remember a long while back, an offering from scrapyard mentioning handles Dan had dug out of a hole somewhere and built a knife to fit, or some such.
