CPM154 stainless with black pearl acrylic scales, brass pins and mosaic.
Beautiful Steve, What are the dimensions of this one
Awesome looking piece! I want to try some of that scale material. So rich looking. Excellent job!
Thanks guys! Hey Grouch it is an overall 8" with a 4.5" handle 3.5" cutting edge and the widest part of the blade is 1.5"
Very nice ! I like the arcylic scales, are they hard to work with as far as heat and polishing ?
Beat me to it Mark......Steve how do you like working the acrylic ??
The acrylic is super easy to work with. Some are stronger than others but all easy to shape and they can be polished on the buffing wheel after 220grit to the point where there are no lines or scratches in them. I can fully shape a handle in 20min. And they are water proof which is a bonus. But that being said I prefer to use wood for handles and only typically use acrylics upon the customers request. Give it a try it is nice to work with and reasonably cheap in price.
Nice...that pearl looks awesome.
