Nice work! I like the R/W/B theme on the 2 I can see in the picture. Sounds like you must have had fun with it if you made 15 sets!legOFwhat? wrote: ↑Tue Jan 08, 2019 11:36 amOver the Christmas holiday I played around with making a few scales. 15 sets to be exact, funny thing is I only have 4 mules. I'll eventually get around to using woods but for now it's micarta and kirinite. Linen, paper, and canvas Micarta and various Kirinits including some glow in the dark. Messed up a few times but I don't mind...learning curve. My kids teamed up and bought me this PD#1 mule and it's my favorite so far:
Yep loads of fun! I have enough material to make another 10 or so sets just to practice and get a feel for what materials I like most, then maybe buy a few more mules for the scales I like best.
Few of your Spare scales I would like to pinch to use on another PD1
Having them interchangeable has really helped me find what I like and don't about shape, material and appearance. There is also an amount of insecurity on my part, in that if I mess up at least the knife can be reused with less work. That was my thinking in the beginning while just learning, but I've grown to really like the fact that I can maintain under the scales.
Have used a thin layer of felt sprayed to damp with Inox (food grade) Placed under the scales stops most of the wicking effect.legOFwhat? wrote: ↑Wed Jun 17, 2020 11:20 am
I didn't realize, with heavy use, how much sweat and water would wick underneath especially on a few PMA11's.
