I've been experimenting a lot with this material recently; someone saw one of the earlier Impregg handles I did and commissioned this guy. The fun part about this material is being able to forge these free-form blades and not have to worry about spending time on fitting scales to the tang. The thumb rest give great control over the edge and is more comfortable than jimping in my opinion. Comments and critique always appreciated Theo
So I am experimenting with this new handle material I made up that I call Impregg. It's sanitized and crushed egg shell, mica powder, and G-Flex epoxy. It's got some really neat depth to it, you can see through the gaps between shells to the swirls of mica powder inside. The tang is left rough and the material is "cast" directly onto it. I feel it will work really well for my integrals especially. Please let me know what you think, I plan on using it in a little upcoming series.

This knife features a forged thumb rest that gives you wonderful control over the blade for most tasks. Hand forged W2 high carbon steel camp knife with integral finger rest.
