Next to fill the filework and then hopefully get the brass liners and scales on

id leave filling the file work till the liner and scales are fitted , let the serplus glue fill the holes , if you use the pigment in all the glue it will do the work for you !!
this one is gonna be great !! im really impressed .
all the best matt

rob off here might be able to cut you some from exotic wood that will fi t?

can i be honest ?
that wood is terrieble , if you can remember the damascus skinner i did a few months back the scales that cracked and came off where that exact same wood from the same batch as that , i actualy bought it because there big and i needed to handle large blades , so back to the drawing borad .
you could allways make your own micarta ? will fit perfect then , linen is cheap and everything else that goes into it is to , you tube making micarta lots of vids , halfords sell fibre glass resin and the fabric cant be hard to find ?

try it brass and black horn will look beautiful i think !! and with the liners and black back fill of the file work it has a constant theme as well .
its great fun this and its great your letting us all have input !!
all the best , matt

whats next after this bad boy ?
there is so many lads on here doing this now its great to see , we will have to have a knife making weekend or something where everyone who comes can partisipate , cant do it at my house tho , if any of you guys know of a farm with out buildings etc that has power etc i can bring a forge or two and the big grinder and we could have a great time of it !
what you all think ?
