  1. By way of introduction, my name is Chris Davis, owner and craftsman of Davis Leatherworks in Walton, WV, USA. I'm Hoys Forge's son-in-law (yes, the one he made the leather skiving knife for who "never posted it on his shop"), and while I have some interest in forging (although my life has been threatened by my father-in-law should I ever even consider taking it up as another hobby), I love just looking at other craftsmen's work. Also, I'm the one with the camera, so when Hoys Forge wants pictures uploaded either I or my wife take them and edit them... Nine months or so ago, I bought a Case XX Sod Buster Jr. (the SS one, unfortunately) and I hated the scales... They were that plastic urethane material, and the knife just felt cheap... So, with much pleading (although he did tell me it was a bit of a waste to put any money/effort into it) I got my father-in-law to agree to put some new scales on it for me. I bought a couple of Padauk wood (don't ask me why, I just liked how it looked) scales and after an hour or so had a completely different looking knife. Attached are some photos of the process and the finished product... <object width="700" height="525"> <param name="flashvars" value="offsite=true&lang=en-us&page_show_url=%2Fphotos%2Fpensnpaper%2Fsets%2F72157629698249626%2Fshow%2F&page_show_back_url=%2Fphotos%2Fpensnpaper%2Fsets%2F72157629698249626%2F&set_id=72157629698249626&jump_to="></param> <param name="movie" value="http://www.flickr.com/apps/slideshow/show.swf?v=124984"></param> <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src="http://www.flickr.com/apps/slideshow/show.swf?v=124984" allowFullScreen="true" flashvars="offsite=true&lang=en-us&page_show_url=%2Fphotos%2Fpensnpaper%2Fsets%2F72157629698249626%2Fshow%2F&page_show_back_url=%2Fphotos%2Fpensnpaper%2Fsets%2F72157629698249626%2F&set_id=72157629698249626&jump_to=" width="700" height="525"></embed></object>
