    Any special requests for etches on these? Spine or Ricasso? Mines gonna have Rowdy Roddy Piper on one side and "I'm all out of bubble gum" on the other:D Speak now or forever hoe your peas.

    I like your idea, let's go with that - or maybe something a little less subtle. o_O

    On second thought, keep it classy. A tastefully done RedMeadow Knives on the ricasso works for me. :thumbsup:

    This is still blocky but it's gonna have curves. This is natural micarta, it will darken up a lot.

    It's always nerve wracking to drill scales for tapered tangs, just got the Starry Night for the other one drilled out and all went well.

    That's coming along really nice! :cool: Balance point is perfect, these will feel nice in-hand.

    I bet it's not easy. That part would wreck havoc on my OCD, lol. Glad to hear it went well. :thumbsup:

    Both sets of scales came from the same block. You can make out the same white "planet" on both handles and the shooting star by the spines.
