Does anyone ever notice scale shrinkage? I pretty much finished a knife about 2 weeks ago. All that is left is etching my mark and sharpening. The tang, pins and guard were all perfectly smooth with the wood but the past week I've been noticing the wood slightly shrinking. It is at the point where I will have to refinish the handle. The scales are cocobolo and were already cut into knife scales when I bought them and seemed to be nice and dry ready to use. I have had this happen a couple other times with ebony macassar which was a small board and seemed fully dry when I bought it. It even sat around in my house for almost a year before I even used it. Any input would be greatly appreciated because it is driving me crazy.
