So this is gonna be my first hello, I've been long time lurker. I finally signed up. My first Spyderco was an Emerson Delica. Spyderco was unknown to me, the reason I bought her is because she cut me when I first handled it in the store. Knife bites for me might as well be love bites. Is that weird?
I own many Spydies, among them the Brad Southard. The only thing I didn't like about it was that god awful brown G10. This was my first attempt of creating a custom handle for a folder. Lessons were learned and it was fun. The handle material is stabilized California Buckeye Burl. I have yet to create a lock bar stabilizer from the same stuff.
Thanks for looking!
