D'allara handle is "Sklotextit" high pressure laminate.
WOW! Customs :spyder:'s are awesome. I can only dream of the stuff i'd do if i had the cash... gotta get a mule one of these days.
This is one of the best threads ever.
I really like the picture of the Endura on the engine. nice knives!! :D
Wow that Endura is an amazing piece!! thanks for the additional photos
That Endura is beautiful. Did you have an SS remade or was it a FRN? Stunning!!!!
Nobody likes D'allara???
Thanks for your opinion. Wood handles are very comfortable and nice in hand.Quote:

Work with G-10, CF or Micarta is much harder in home workshop :(.
I will try make Delica wood handle too ;).
So, this is link to my friend and teacher Czech knife-maker Zdenek Stor: http://www.knifemakers.eu/Default.aspx
!!! he doesn't speak english !!! If you have some questions, please contact me ;-)
"Military" D'allara handle is from "Sklotextit" it's high pressure laminate (Czech made) something like G-10 or Micarta. It's only two colors available: green or brown. At this time is without original clip. I have idea to make leather case for it. Thanks for interest :).
Also thanks for the link to friends site, I may have to look through what he has and buy something there or see if I could pay him to make one for me if I fail at trying to do it myself
I also think I may order a couple of slabs are try to make some handles for my new mule team. Thanks for the links.
Make a custom handle on the Spyderco knife is my idea many years ago. My friend Zdenek Stor makes his original knives and leather cases. Hi doesn't interested about handle only :-D. You can buy from him some knife. I can recommend Bali Song from him (sorry for of topic!)! Custom handle for Spyderco is my "job". If you want to order woody Endura or Delica, let me know. I can do D'allara too, but not from wood. Handle is too thin. Very nice is woody Tenacious! But I thing, that I can do any other model you want. Thanks for interest :)
I just bought ATR Titanium last week. It's awesome knife by my opinion!
Im happy :).
