    I just got in from working on my scandi and I figured I would post a couple handles I finished. The first pic is just after I clamped the scales on. The scales are red linen micarta with black and white liners.

    These next few pics are of the knife done for now. I'm not sure if I am happy with the shape of the handle. It feels good in my hand but looks blocky if that's even a word. The other knife in the pics is actually my first. It is canvas micarta with red liners. Both of the knives are 440C and are bought finished blades.

    Thanks Rob. I picked up the pieces a while back at on the edge in ingersoll and finished it in a couple days after work. From then I knew I was hooked. So I placed an order a about a month ago to satisfy my cravings. I should have enough stuff now for a while.

    They both look really good, Icho-.
    I know what you mean about the red one being "blocky". I think some of it comes from the colour. The red is so strong against the steel that it can overwhelm. I'd guess if you'd added a bolster, it would help that a lot.

    Thanks Myth. I was considering adding bolsters but the blade didn't come pre drilled for them and I didn't feel like trying to drill hardened steel.
