    Love it! Did you have any trouble keeping the scales clean while finishing the bolsters?

    Yessir, i like that very much. Clean and pretty. Nice work. I especially enjoy the raised clip. I've been into that lately.

    Thanks all for the very kind comments, much appreciated!
    @Icho- yes the Micarta gets dirty very quickly when working on the bolsters. I got round this by masking up the scales and finishing the bolsters last.
    Also this knife does not have a nail nick, so the tension had to be spot on. Strong enough to close the blade, but not to strong to be Pinched open.

    The last time I worked on a light coloured handle I had a hard time keeping it clean. It made me so crazy that I replaced the scales. I started a thread about it a couple years ago.
