    the tip on the Pacific Salt...



    Made the Native easier to open...





    Pointy Salt 1 tip...



    D4 wave removal...



    Thanks for lookin'.

    - best wishes, Jazz.

    Love what you did to the Tenacious. Is that Brown Linen Micarta? Do you do these for others or just for yourself?

    thanks!
    it's green linen micarta, even though it does look brown. after a few days of edc, the micarta kinda gets "polished", and darkens.
    i made these scales just to personalize my knife, and i had to do it the hard way. i'm not at all set up to make these, but there are a few around that could probably help you out.
    i used a scroll saw, a drill driver, a rotary tool, a bastard file and sandpaper to make these, primitive compared to what you would need to mass produce scales.
    it was time consuming, but a lot of fun. and now i have a knife that's mine!
    i would suggest trying it for yourself. there are enough folks around these parts that could help coach you through the process.
    give it a shot, you can always put the original scales back on if you're not happy with the results.
    good luck!

    Bought this at a Spyderco Factory Sale with half of the blade snapped off. It started life as an SS Delica.



    Still works great!

    Delica and Endura are great knives! They're the low priced crack samples that'll get you hooked on spyderco! Feed the need!

    Use your blades in the kitchen, it's great bonding time!

    Here is my poor old native. The tip got reground handle now matches the opening hole and I added some grooves at the back underside of the handle.

    The notches at the back are a cool idea - I hope you don't mind if I copy you.
