Made some cutouts for the back spacer for future glow epoxy. When I put them on the Skyline, I noticed they were a little uneven in regards to width to each other. I can fix that in a couple of minutes later, though. Still have to convince myself to buy some glow powder. I've always wanted to play with some.
If you do this Q, set up a vacuum next to the work to keep the dust down. The dust from G10 isn't good for your lungs or the little one's. I wear a dust mask at minimum when I play with stuff like this. G10, micarta, corian, bone, antler, acrylics and dymondwood. Even the stabilized woods.
I need to get a Persistance or G10 Dragonfly and try my hand at scales. I have used Corian for fixed blades and it works quite well. Used rubber mats for them, too. That is a grippy handle when you use rubber matting.
Glow powder is a blast. Put some around the bulb of a LED converted Maglite. The glow is able to be focused with the reflector. Set it in some epoxy under a Victorinox SAK shield in a set of walnut handles on a Deluxe TInker that decided it was time to move on (means I lost it.)
I haven't made any scales for a while now, but finally got around to making one for my Cryo.
Looks great, was it hard making the cavity for the speedsafe?
NICE!! I've been wanting to do some custom backspacers but never bought more g10
I removed the assisted opener. Now it's just a flipper. I wasn't up for trying to deal with all that.
Ahh, do you just remove the tensor bar or would one have to modify the knife a bit?
I just removed it. I may need to add an extra washer on the scale side to help center the blade a bit.
I might give it a shot, thanks.
Do it x2
You guys sure know how to talk someone into something.
That is one nice looking scale MisterS. Very nice looking. You get your materials from USA Knifemaker, too?
Thanks very much! Yes, USA Knifemaker for all my G10 needs
Now I have to try to make a scale for my Cryo along with the Persistence I have coming. Jade, Toxic Green and not sure what other color I want need.
The Persistence is a fun knife to customize...there's pics of the one I customized with jade green scales on page 3 of this thread
Is it bad to be reading the threads here and having USA knifemakers site open looking at G10? That hunter orange/toxic green keeps drawing me to it.
That's where it all started. I blame you. But in a nice way. That's why I have 2 coming. one from the forum store and another from a member.
