That is really cool! Nice little knife and the micarta is great. I like the video. I learned a thing or two when you used the sander to carefully take down the micarta near the ricasso. I usually end up hitting the blade with the rough grit sandpaper and having some unsightly marks in the finished blade. Thanks for showing.

That is a super cool little knife. I love that micarta; it's not neon colors which people seem to be fond of and I am not. Blade is is good, love the patina.
