Striderized Persistence!

Finally got to work on my persistence to join the rest of my value folder wood scale family.

If just doing a fairly simple g10 replacement (full metal liners), and using small, pre-cut knife scale blanks from one of the standard suppliers, I'd say a dremel, sanding paper, a good drill and ...

Show Your Wood Scale Mods!

I have often wondered why more people don't post mods using wood. Either they are shy or not many are doing it. But I have been seeing an increase lately, so here is a spot to do it.
