Thanks Rio, very interesting stuff.

I must admit i like the ease of use of this Z-poxy. As can be seen, i now have the scales in place. Just the pins to work on now.

Good to hear about that company for you.

I have a few sharpening systems, to work on with this blade. I'd like to use the proper wet stones but i don't find them easy.

Both scales now fitted and drilled through. Just the brass pins to fit now, then shape the handpiece.

I just find it easier this way, and less chance of any slippage with the scales, when drilling the holes.

I like the first scale a good fit, and glue fully set, then drill through that one,- then get a good fit and glue fully set on the second scale, then drill through from the first one, that way i know everything will be ok. I know it takes me a bit longer, but i don't make many knives, so have plenty of time.

Finished now. I'm very pleased indeed with it. I'm glad i used the black micarta, i normally prefer a light colour, but this worked great with the brass.

Nice looking, rugged knife!

I make knives, as well, small, traditional hunters mostly.

Allthough I prefer hidden tangs.
