If you get some kirinite be aware it is very soft to work with. MUCH MUCH softer than G-10. I ruined my first scale I tried because I cut much too much before realizing it. I was using a chamfer router bit in a Dremel and even the post that is supposed to ride along the edge of the material cut into the kirinite. I assume it created enough heat to melt it. It acts more like plastic when working with it than G-10 or wood, etc.BOOMER52 wrote:Jack... Thanks for the enthusiastic comment...!
These have been engraved with a 90 deg. v-bit on my CNC router. First time I've attempted this. Might have to investigate the technique further. It really turned out nicely...!
Those Kirinite scales of yours are terrific looking... I'm real tempted to get some to play with...!
There are some really interesting colors in this stuff though. I could see using it for a lot more than just knife handles. One thing about it is the color pattern isn't consistant through the depth of the material. As you sand downward the pattern will change. It's like different paint colors have been stirred instead of layered like you get with layered G-10 and things like that.
