    @ModrnDayMcGyver

    Nice work indeed. Looks very good! I could see this turning into a mini-addiction once started.

    Do you use a vice to hold your g10 or blade for the vining patterns? I keep thinking of getting a small vice to help some projects along.

    Looks very good. It makes me wish that I didn't give my Tenacious away so I could try it myself!

    I removed the blade and I used my black and decker "workmate", which has a vise feature to hold it in place. A standard vise would work fine.

    Looked at misterS ideas and decided to give it a try. I removed the blade only and clamped it in a vise with soft jaws. The dremel removes material fast so I had to be careful not to go all the way through. It came out better than I expected. Thanks for all the tips!

    I wrote the post and hot send while in an elevator. Then when I opened the app back up later, it showed it hadn't sent. So I sent it again. Ha oops

    This thread is awesome, I have some cheapo Kershaw knives with G10 I will practice with. I have a few rattail files to try out.
    Questions, do you remove the G10 to file? How do you keep enough material around the screws so that the G10 remains tight to the liner?

    Thanks man! Yeah, I would remove the scale before taking a file to it. Just be careful around screws and you should have plenty enough g10 to hold the scale in place. I would advise starting out conservatively...you can always take more off, but you can add it back on once it's gone:)
