    Agreed. The faux bolster is a really cool idea.

    Nice! Very cool effect with two patterns on one piece. I love it.
    - best wishes, Jazz.

    In that case there's not even screws, I don't how they attached the scales to the liners... Glue?

    I'll post some pics of the lockbar, liners and backspacer after they were drilled, later on tonight. I might have a Manix 2 posted up soon as well, and maybe an update to the Caly.

    The second image is the original hole sizing. Around 0.095 inches, give or take.






    And last, a better beauty pic.

    Was the last hole drilled too large at first? What is that.... a copper washer?

    Souta112 - Gorgeous work. Nice color, and I bet it's nice and light now.

    I want almost that exact scales! I just want the rippled surface over the whole thing in sand g-10 with a g-10 back spacer as well! Where can I get a pair of these?!?

    I'm new to the forum. Bumped into this thread early on and it blew me away. I've spent the last two days reading all the posts and enjoyed every minute (hours!) of it. Thank you to all those that posted your fantastic mods. They are not only a joy to look at but fuel for the imagination and the inspiration to try it myself (including the steep learning curve).

    Welcome, Paynter. I love seeing everyone's great work, too. Really inspiring. Hope you stick around... and show your mods, if you do any.

    My Manix 2 mod I spoke of previously. Still a couple things to finish up, but just about done.

    It was originally a blacked out Manix 2, Now the blades been stonewashed, and the steel parts acidwashed. Black and green layered linen micarta, unfortunately the green doesn't show as well as I'd like...









    I don't know how I got such good pics, (IMHO), but I did... Some how...

    Good job. I really like the blade. I assume it was the DLC coating. I like the way the grind line (above the hollow part) shows up. Also, the tang stamps really stand out. Did it happen like that just from stonewashing or did you do something else. I don't remember seeing a DLC blade stonewashed before. Looks great. I've tried layered G-10 before and have always been disappointed at the lack of distinction between the two colors. Maybe it's a polishing/finishing thing or maybe it's a different manufacturer. Either way, nice work.

    Souta112' your Manix 2 looks great. Hard to tell if you stonewashed DLC or if you Acid bathed it then stonewashed.
