I received my Spalted Maple scales in today. Couldn’t wait to install them but wasn’t able to until the sun went down. So interior photos in my dimly lit room were my only option. Beautiful finish and makes the Watu an absolutely gorgeous knife, even more than it already was. I’ll try to get some pictures in the sunlight when I can. Winter days in Minnesota are fleeting affairs so it may be some time before that happens.

I think my search for the ultimate Smock scales is over. Bocote with the UV finish.

Do you have to disassemble the whole knife to install the scales? How hard is it to recenter the blade?

I just took the scales off one side at a time, didn't even have to remove the liners. Took me all of 10 minutes, and most of that was cleaning and reapplying loctite from/to the screws.
