this is how I drill the holes through both scales and keep everything straight. You’ll notice one of them has a shim under the tang, that’s how I compensate for the tapered tang.
about a full days work finish grinding all these. Took them all up to 120 grit with a worn belt, gives a nice satin finish.
I need more clamps. I can’t do more handles than this at a time because I run out of clamps, and I actually ruined one of the interrogatives by using spring clamps. Doh!
something different for me. I got the idea from Big Chris Knives, half tang with a micarta spacer. Saves weight and can get more knives out of less material.
thanks for checking out my work.
