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.

im happy that you guys like it.

the video is just for entertaining and killing my time.

 

btw; i was sanding the micarta only to grit 150. thats ok for me, its a user.

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.

yeah, i like it simple. made on this micarta 2 black 1 brown papers. wanted a simple and not screaming patern.

the next micarta i maybe go for 2 brown 1 black.

dont like the neon green/orange combo´s.
