    This is the first time I've needed to take one of my Spydercos apart. I was hesitant to do it and have been sitting on it for weeks since I bought it from Holland, but it went a lot smoother than I was expecting...took me less than 10 minutes in fact. Probably not surprising though given that I was able to remove and disassemble the foglights of my parents Grand Wagoneer when I was 5 (And when an insurance broker was at the house no less...not the best timing lol).

    It only glows that brightly after 10-15 seconds under my 260 lumens flashlight...it does fade, and it's not normally that bright.

    I made some time to spend in the shop this weekend and finished up two mods that have been sitting on my bench for a while. The first is a Squeak modified with jigged bone scales. This is only my second or third time to use jigged bone - it is not my favorite material to work with. It tends to chip out, the dye gets all over the place until it wears down, and the smell when you cut or drill it is really bad. But I've always had a soft spot for jigged bone ever since my Grandad got me into knives almost 50 years ago. He was a Case man, and this was his favorite scale material. Nothing says "traditional" quite like dyed jigged bone...

    Anyway, this is a set of bargain basement scales from Culpepper. I wanted to try it out before investing in some more expensive slabs. I drilled and counterbored these with my drill press and cut them out using my bandsaw (pee-ew!). I then contoured and sanded them down to 1500 grit. The Squeak doesn't have any washers (they are built into the FRN scales) and I think I'll need to get some phosphor bronze washers for the next time I break it down. That would make the action silky smooth.

    Here's my second weekend project - a UKPK rescaled in Arizona Ironwood. These scales took some time to get prepped. When I resawed the slabs off a larger block, it exposed a lot of hairline cracks and small checks. So I drilled and counterbored the holes, cut out the scales, and roughly contoured and sanded them down to 120 grit. Then I removed the scales from the knife and coated them with thin CA glue. This filled the cracks and I sanded the CA off and polished the scales out to 1200 grit. It was topped with Ren Wax for the final finish.

    Absolutely amazing scale mod/replacement with the jigged bone that you did on the Squeak, Ted!

    This is so COOL! I love the Squeak. I carry mine often and this just looks wonderful. I'll bet that it will be super slick with the new washers..

    This is my first attempt at a knife modification. I just acid etched the pattern and added a small lanyard made from one of my Infantry cords...

    Pretty amateurish I'll admit but it was a fun project.
