Are those just attached with epoxy? I am on my phone but don't see pins. Looks wonderful!

They are a press fit over the existing pins (just like the original ones) and glued on.

Looks a lot nicer than the red plastic handles. I really like it.

Can you keep the toothpick & tweezers in the handles? The tweezers are sometimes helpful with splinter removal.

Hi John,

I'm really enjoying my micarta Camper. Today is only the third full day of carry, but I've already used it a bunch. Thanks again for such a fine job with the new scales!

Very cool! Is something that you do often or a one-of? That would be neat to do with one of my Dad's old SAKs!

Sorry, I must have missed this. It`s something I plan on doing on a regular basis, if anybody wants it.

I charge $35 for micarta, $38 for G10, plus $6 shipping, on a customer supplied knife. I plan on doing 3 or 4 a month, if anyone is interested.

I've got a Vic Mechanic for re-scale next. I'm thinking polished green micarta with red liners if possible.
