I'm not sure I could pick a favorite! I really like the grooves on the Putman scales, but I think the terotuf actually feels softer, .....

Julia, both scales look great, but the terotuf even more so imho... I´d love such scales on my HAP40 Stretch 1, but in a darker denim I guess...
Fireside has a darker blue color,too. I know they're planning to do delica and other spydie models...definitely worth checking on Stretch ones!

I have a set of his "Skinny Cut" Shaman scales, sorry about the pic, it's not the best angle, but this is what they look like.... I wasn't sure when I ordered them, but I figured with the rep he has, he probably knows what he's doing.... sure 'nuf, took me about 3 minutes after istalling to declare them awesome! I really like them, I am actually working on getting a couple more pairs from him in a diff material. He makes great stuff!

Image

Thank you JMM. Those scales look fantastic! That clip looks familiar too . . . ;)

Have you measured those scales by chance? To see how much skinnier they are each, or overall, when mounted on the knife?

On a side note. I dropped my Micarta/Rex yesterday, while climbing a ladder. The knife was about 5 to 6 feet off of the ground when it fell. I watched it fall, and of course it all seemed to be in slow-motion! :D
It did one rotation on the way down, and landed directly on its tip into the concrete (Murphy's Law). Blowing out a piece of the concrete, about the size of a kernel of corn in the process.

Here is a picture of the tip 'damage'. >

Image


A few rubs of the CBN stone, and I'll be back in action! :spyder:
I haven't actually done a proper measuring of them, which I can do easily enough, I can take a couple pics of side by side with OEM G10 scales if anyone is interested in something more than the data....?

That pic of your blade made me squirm when I saw it, that's not easy to get me to do! ;) I don't know a single person that uses a knife on the reg that hasn't done that a time or three, over my lifetime I'd say a half dozen or so times -- and as far as falling tip down, I think it's sorta like dropping toast butter side down... right? ;) :)

Hey, not to further derail this thread, but on the unusual/new scales front, I am interested if anyone has used scales that have been 3D printed from "PlastiSteel aka PlaSteel"? I Just got my first set on a Delica yesterday and I'm eager to hear others input, I will post up a couple pics....

Cheers,

John

I love this exclusive! I went back to my original g10 shaman to compare, and it's made me love these scales even more. They're lightweight, durable and grippy... Everything the Shaman needed!

I still love the g10 version for the "hand feeling" weight of the materials, but the KC one is a knockout. Big blade but lightweight and balanced.

Also, did anyone else notice the pivot screws on the KC exclusive are different. They are round while other shamans are flat.

How did yours end up after the touch up? I damaged my Rex45 Shaman tip on a Cholula bottle. Might just drop it off at Spydero after work or hit it with my brown rods. Think the browns could do the job?

It will take you quite a while with the brown rods if the damage is similar to what is shown in this pic. CBN/Diamond stones will make repairing damage like a chip MUCH easier and save a lot of time.
Currently have 20 :spyder: 's in 14 different steels.

The damage is less significant and more of a roll. Thanks for the advice. I'll just drop it off at Spyderco since I'm close and don't have CBN or Diamond stones.

If it's a roll, you could get it done with the browns. Plus, half the fun of this hobby is learning how to sharpen your own knives. Give it a try yourself first! I'm intentionally trying to dull some M4 myself today at work ...harder than I expected! :)

I would rather just sharpen it out over time. That is minor damage and it will sort itself out. The last thing I would do is let Spyderco put it to the belt sander. It isn’t bad enough for that.
