    What a neat idea! The Blackhawk is a sweet knife. Thanks for the opportunity, Kristi. (Looks like I'll need to get a Swick now ).

    Cool contest...this may get me to finally commit to making my first custom scales.
    That blackhawk is pretty awesome, reminds me of the early generation chinook blade.

    Thanks for the very cool contest! Especially since I just received some custom Swick 3 scales. This should be a fun one, and what a great prize! Thanks again.

    Thanks Kristi and Spyderco! Let's see who's first to post some of the new Halpern scales! When will we see the leaf version?

    Has anyone made their own scales with bare bones tools? I'm thinking files and sandpaper.

    There was a thread started by bearfacekiller a few days ago where he has pictures of making some simple wood scales with just a bow saw, sandpaper and files.
    I don't have much more than this myself, but I think I will give it a go.

    I hope so too since there are those who buy scales and those who do the work themselves. It's hard to not be biased to the person doing it themselves.

    I did a simple set just to get the feel of it. I new it was my first set and wasn't very meticulous. I plan on doing it again with some better wood. If you just take your time hand tools should be fine. Drilling nice countersunk holes in the right spots could be easier with a drill press. I used a coping saw, sandpaper and a hand drill then stained them and rubbed mineral oil on them. Ive been using the knife and even though they are ugly they are comfortable.

    That was for a mule. I'm gonna make swick scales but I have a plan for that. :-)

    I'm guessing self-made scales (or custom ones) may stand a better chance at winning, as the rules state:
    Submitted photos must be of a customized Spyderco Swick. All submissions will be voted on by a panel of Spyderco crew members.
    This makes me think that those that aren't just run of the mill, ordinary scales will more likely gain the favor of those voting.

    Thanks, I found the original thread and it looks like it's not too far fetched so I might try. I'd be happy if mine turned out that well but either way it should be an enjoyable process; it's been way too long since I've walked around a hardware store.
