    hey Sean,
    i learned recently (IIRC a description of the Fallkniven TK3 folders with red/black quince wood inlays)...that quincewood is type of apple tree...
    I can't wait to see your finished Mule team handles

    I ate a Quince not too long ago... either I just got a bad one or they are really nasty fruit.

    Brian, you got a prison style Mule there, cordwrapped handle and the genuine cardboard sheath

    Just be careful with showing off to Chad or Jimd, as due to the rules its gonna be confiscated.

    Hey Jano, I'm gonna spruce it up my "prison shank" with some wooden handles, maybe something with "chadoyance"

    Here's the first one I did. Red and black G10 with #4-40 hardware. Opened up the mounting holes to 3/16.






    Here is one in Lignum Vitae. Removable handles. #4-40 hardware, with inserts cut down for the stock .164 holes. Owner will get replacement inserts for the new 3/16" holes.
