Thanks a bunch!
nothing to add to what has been said yet , apart from my personal admiration for your patience and skill.
I got this knife and I know that the metal plate of this side of the knife takes place in a little hollowing on the inner side of the original plastic cover.
how was the deal with this part on your custom one ?
did you replicate the same shape ?
Thank you kind sir...much appreciated!
Thanks! I just used the flat side of the G10 on the under side without the metal plate. I noticed that the metal plate and the original scale were flush, forming one flat surface, so the G10 worked out just fine.
I need moon light for my nano!

Is it bad that I just ordered $25($30 with shipping!!) worth of scale material for one $13 knife?!?
No!! You knew it would happen.....
It actually reminds me of when i was making knives from scratch, putting $20 worth of handle/bolster materials on ~$5 worth of raw bar steel... (and after about 6.5 hours of work, selling it for ... well, a Lot more )
Its funny, I knew had missed making/modifying knives and folders, but never really realized How Much I missed it, till I started again this last week. Most fun I've had working on something for a LONG time!
Ya I know how you feel. Pure hobbyist here, but I started the Mod. process again today and to say I'm excited to see the end result is a total understatement.
It's bad only if you don't do anything with it. Or if you don't show us what you made with it....
Well, it might end up on a slightly spendier knife...
a GITD Cryo is rather appealing.
Looking forward to seeing what you guys come up with!
Reviving this ole thread to share some scales I made today...been a while.
These were my first attempts working with carbon fiber. The Resilience was made with red carbon fiber, the ZT 560 with blue.
Great work as usual MrS,
Do you happen to have a little OCD in ya?
Thanks Kye! I'm sure I've got some!
Hey I am brand new to this forum guys. I have been lurking for awhile. I ran across this page and was inspired. This is my Gerber F.A.S.T. I recently did a full tear down and cleaning of this knife, I have had it for about five years. It was a gift from my dad. I EDC it for about four years as a diesel truck mechanic. It saw a lot of nasty abuse. Anyways I loved all this work you guys have been doing but I like the factory scales on this thing.but I wanted to try this stuff out so I took my Dremel to the spine. This is what I got out of it. It's a little messy for a first try at anything like this but I got the effect I was looking for. Next is to figure out how to grind down the serrations for a nice straight cutting edge. Tell me what you think.

Really nice job! I want to try and do this for my tenacious and then maybe other knives as well! Where did you purchase the material to start with? I have been searching the net for scale blanks. Also did I read you are using some kind of file? How bout a dremel? Thanks for sharing this!
Thanks! I purchased the G10 from a company called "USA Knifemaker Supply". I did some early scale work using a file, but I did most of my work using a Dremel.
Thanks again! I have been thinking about doing these kinds of mods for a while. Looks pretty straightforward.
