    One From Wales

    Acrylic scales with "Anso style" texturing, Black fibre liners, Alu pins.
    No plans for a sheath as it's destined to live in the Kitchen.

    Excuse the poor pic, it's not the camera, I'm jst a crap photographer!



    I may grind the guard off in the future as they have a tendancy to get in the way when using a knike on a board.

    Thanks Brian,
    I've been a member for a while and a LONG time lurker, thought that my Mule gave me a good reason to step out of the shadows!

    Looks like a great knife Jeroboam. Always fan of the Anso look

    On top of that Welcome to the Forums. So do tell what other Spydies do you have.

    Well Brad, it was seeing yours in the first post of this thread that gave me the nudge to try the texturing!


    As for what others I own, not wanting hijack this thread I've posted them here

    This is strictly a prototype blade cover/sheath "thrown together" or so says the maker Senor Mike Billman from Grindstone cutlery. He has made handles for another mule and found that the brass rods from the SharpMaker fit perfectly in the holes that are drilled in the knife.

    I took those pictures at his shop, that is one of 3 SharpMakers he keeps on the counter to do sharpening for customers. If I had to guess those SharpMakers probably sharpen 100 knives a week every week so its not uncommon for them to look like that by Friday afternoon. Monday morning they will be shiny again.

    After I took these he setup the sheath as a neck carry and it works very well.

    WW: Thanks for the pics. So how do you secure the rod to the scales? What is the OD of the rod?

    Howdy Folks,

    I have litle knife making experiance so my approch is to use materials and tools at hand in my garage.

    I trimmed my apple trees a couple of years ago and set the limbs out to dry. Today, I cut a section of one of them then cut it in half lengthwise to use as scales. I'll post pictures of my progress as it happens.

    Here are the scales after the first cut and a couple of wafers of the same stick to show the end grain.

    interesting project you've got "cooking" there Sean thanks for sharing .... as I have no knifemaking experience either, but I've been "into" wooden handles on knives (reading up on varieties of wood) ...I wonder if those slabs should be stabilized before you shape them into handles as they might shrink/shift (?) with changes in humidity

    I've been thinking about that myself. They are very dry as then limbs were outside in the northern Colorado weather for two years. I was going to soak them in a 50/50 mix of linseed oil and mineral spirits after they were on the tang. Now that you mention it, I think I'll do the rough shaping, then soak for a good long time in the linseed mix and dry them, then final assembly, shape and buff, then finish with a coat of the linseed mix.

    Sort of a shade tree stabilization.

    CWO:

    I believe he is securing the scales using 10 Ton clear Epoxy that gets buffed out during the shaping of the handles (in case of any over runs). Once my mule is complete I'll put pictures up but he said that the owner of the mule he is working on now will be posting pics of that one soon.

    The OD of the brass rod is: 0.16 inch or 4.1mm. Keep in mind that this is the average of 3 readings on 3 different points on the rod since it does get worn and warped from being used and put away.
