Glad you like it... that's the last one I do with Micarta grips until I get some special tooling. That stuff is a bitch to work with. Cutting it with a scroll saw sucks. Cutting it with a band saw is tuff. I pretty much had to use a belt sander and disc sander to shape the whole thing which produces a metric butt load of dust (which I found out I'm allergic too) that gets every where. It's so fine (even wearing a good mask) that it gets everywhere.. everywhere.

That being said, I'm happy how it turned out. I wish I would have remembered to put the colored (yellow) spacers between the handle scales and the blade, but otherwise like it.

Only reason I'm going to sell it is so that I can make more.
