awesome...would like to see more indepth photos as well as a description .....
SMAJ you have already seen the highest quality photography that I am capable of as far as description,... I am not sure what you exactly want but rest assured that I did not make it,... if I gad indeed made it would resemble a steaming pile and/or would not function as intended I received this scale from a member of blade forums who has an account here as well if IIRC
No knife modes from me at this point in time, but just thought I'd share something...
In case anyone was wondering how Benchmade stone washes their blades, it's in one of these:
And yes, this is actually one of the units in use at the factory.
(don't ask how I got this picture, it was smuggled out at great risk to a deep cover agent...)
My buddy says he has a router attachment for an Dremel. I simply MUST get my grimy paws on it.
I gotta make a scale for my Cryo II! !!!
I use the drill press attachment, not the router attachment.
Interesting. That is what I have. Do you use a router bit?
I more frequently use a tile/grout cutting bit.
Nothing better then a good cryo mod. Personally hate the g10 cryo and the black scale on silver metal so I took my black wash cryo and DIYed my own black g10 cryo. Simple mod but it had to be done.
Experimental acid wash rat 1
Cool, that is what I have been using to carve out the space for the liner locks...
My current project: finally getting around to the Rat 1...here is what I have so far:
Looks really good!
Love the g10 on the Cryo
Working on sanding:
I just got some OD blanks, I think I am going to make a set of fixed blade scales for my BM Steep Country, I want to try and inlay this time around.
Interesting pattern, reminds me of a turtle's shell
SMAJ By the way, how do you plan to sink those screw heads? I usually do that before shaping the scale, I even assemble the knife when it's only in it's rough shape to see if the most difficult thing for me, putting the holes at the right place, was successful.
But if you have/made yourself a step drill then you should be on the safe side.
Adahn, its hard to tell from this picture, but I did drill the holes and check the fitting before shaping. I did counter sink the screws as the finish pictures will show (probably finish tomorrow) The difficult part for me is also the screws! Pre assembly last night revealed that I probably should have made the scales a bit thinner....this is now gonna be a very hefty knife!
You cans till sand it down and get an even more interesting pattern, for example to dremel from the six corners int the middle but leave that middle untouched. Or anything else
Yes, I have considered that. I will see how it feels once I get it all pug together. I like the pattern, but may have to just accept another pattern!
