Profile mod scales

Postby Josh Crutchley » Tue May 10, 2022 11:45 am

I've been tinkering with the idea to make profile mod scales for the Mule Team. No tang modifications needed. This is just a rough alpha to get some input on the design.

That awesome. I sure like the skeletonized look.

Thanks, it's far from a finished scale. I plan to contour it in some way.

Love that look! Skeletonized G10 would make this a great lightweight fixed blade.

Yep, I like this idea. I often wish that my Spyderco's had a less-pronounced relief area where the index finger rests behind the blade. More meat there would be great.

It looks cool, for sure. Many of the "bolt on" scales that I've seen pictures of, all seem to be undersize. It would be great if you could make them to fit the blade properly. Although it wouldn't be as obvious, the holes should all match up perfectly, as well. That's just my take on it.

Not sure what you mean? Are you talking about my scales? The holes are lined up perfect in the render.
