    The Grandfather is a bit larger than the Eldris:

    Ecclesiastes 1:9 say there is no new thing under the sun. I can see somebody looking at the grandfather knife and it being inspiration for the Mora Edris. I can see that knife being a handy knife. I know the Eldris is.

    The Otzi knife was probably the inspiration for the Grandfather.

    Any tips getting some old micarta bk16 scales a little brighter?

    All the ones in this thread look so vibrant and beautiful. Mine are like an old toad.

    Have you tried washing them with soap and water? They look like they've just absorbed a lot of oil.

    The micarta on my tuko looks like it needs oil. It gets washed almost daily with soap and water. Its gotten very pale looking. When i first noticed it i accused my wife of putting it in the dishwasher. She says she didnt. More recently ive noticed a couple small chips on it, but ive decided not to question her about it.

    I always wipe my striped blades with mineral oil when not in use and it always gets on the scales and eventually builds up and with use Micarta gets a shine .They still have a good grip to me so it doesn’t bother me . If you want to bring back the dry look and take the shine off use rubbing alcohol it will remove hand oil and mineral oil . Use removes the fuzzy stuff :D If you want the fuzzy look back a lite rub with rough sand paper will do it . Your scales look fine to me :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    My Best week ever, for knife purchases....
    I've wanted both for a long time. Haha
    The 15 looks basically Brand New, I'm afraid to modify/use it.
    ....And The 4 is stamped. Idk if that automatically makes me a Beckerhead, I heard it does...
