Thanks for more pics, LAB. That's so nice. You're making me want a GB, but it would pale next to your's. :cool:

Thanks Jazz. The GB is a great knife. I just personally never could warm up to the look of the CF scales. I've always been partial to bolsters and wood.

Nice sculpted blue g10. It looks like it fits the hand well.

That GB rocks, wenge-wood, correct? Very clean job!! I really like the transit from the SS-bolster to the wood, the angle between both materials, kudos!
You made the dent in the liner for the lock-access as well, but thinned out that liners a lot, right?
I also made my own scales on a GB, thinned out the liners as well. However in my GB you can read 'M-M4', in yours 'PM-M4' ;)
But again, wonderful job!

Hello Toomzz. Thanks for the nice comments. I just made the bolsters and wood match the liners, I didn't thin the liners. As you already mentioned, I made the thumb access for the lock bar larger. That was just a personal preference.

Hi LAB, again superb job. I also liked the liner a little bit more open making the Linerlock better accessible. I did it on both my GBs. Especially the green one is of my all time EDC favorite. With a touch of yourself it a knife so much more ;)

(The picture was made before I made the dent in the green one :) )

The green one is peel-ply, the coyote is milled with a sphere-formed little mill.
It is quite easy, you can also do it with a regular drill in a drill-press...
