    The orange G-10 mule is now finished! I want to thank Tom Krein for his advice on finishing the G-10. I added my own little special touch to it. The pins are black micarta, and it has a black liner!







    Do you see it yet? Look close!

    Thank you!
    It's birdseye maple. Even better in person cause the wood just dances

    That is an amazing looking knife and sheath. Any chance you could let us in on how you got the texturing on the ebony?

    Very nice! What was your process to get the bug on there?

    I just looked through this thread for the first time and I am amazed! There is a lot of talent on display here!

    Is everyone on the Spyderco forum a knife maker?

    I am getting my first Mule soon and wanted ideas for handles. I thought this thread would show me an option or two that I would like but I like almost all of them! Really good work you guys.

    There are about 20 that I like so much I would really want but I don't have the talent to make them. The two layer G-10 is cool, the canvas micarta is always a good option. I think I am leaning toward G-10 or some kind of high tec handle with a kydex sheath.

    Thanks I traced it on and then used a wood burning tool to go over it.

    I posted a couple with handles from Halpern Titanium, and if you go with that option, I have the handles, so I can make a sheath for you, and you won't have to ship your knife to me...

    If you are looking for more Mule goodness...

    Check out my blog about them.... http://muleprojects.blogspot.com/

    Or, if you have specific questions, feel free to email me...

    Best,
    Marion

    Honestly, you might want to figure it out this weekend, because I predict stock of handles, if you are going to buy some from Halpern Titanium, will drop rapidly once guys have knives in their hands.

    I saw the knife is for sale for $ 430,--, but are the handles and sheath for sale separately? I did not find it on the site. Really marvellous job BTW.

    My first ever knife handle... finished (for now)

    I've never even attempted anything like this before so for all its faults I'm pretty pleased w/ how it turned out. All ideas/instruction courtesy of the tutorial thread on these forums...

    MT-05 w/ Dymondwood scales (all shaping and finishing done w/ coping saw, files, sandpaper, and steel wool) - apologies for the bad pics, my camera isn't the greatest and I'm not a photographer by any stretch.
