Prepping for Tee15! Well just squaring things up :winking-tongue

I keep acquiring scale material when I don't really need it lol. I'm ready for the next few mules! Also have some black g10 on the way.

I'm ready as well and eager to see how they come out!

While we wait, I'm going to go back to previous mules that have removable scales and do some rework, or perhaps make pinned handles for them. It's a sickness :woozy

I have some material too ! And 4 pairs stabilized burl scales coming from Ukraine too. They are expensive, but in my eyes they look so good ! Being able to hand-select the pattern so that you know how it'll look like, and keeping the symmetry on each scale is one of my joys :open-grin

(Not all my stock, I have a lot of micarta at home)

Can't show much except one set that is near the corby + epoxy step! I've been focusing on personal blades or other projects lately, but I'm back at it and almost have as much Mules in stock that I have woods :winking-tongue.

I won't buy a carbide 6mm drill bit just to go through REX76 (I'm a maniac, so I want my mosaïc pin right in between my corbys), so decorative mosaïc pins it is ;) . My 2 most beautiful pair of scales are reserved by a customer to pick his favorite for the CPM-T15 ( I'll buy 2 and do both handles, I'll keep the one he does not want lol).

After this one, there's a S45VN Mule to do and for this one Imma try to create a screwed pair of scales. Problem is living in Europe, hardware is impossible to find without jacking up the price of the finished product a lot (same for drill bits).
