    Knife Scales

    Didn't know where to post this, so hope OK.

    Made using shredded Canadian Bank Notes and well as some made using Pheasant feathers for a guy who makes knives.
    The Feathers and Flies Knife Scales should make an interesting looking knife handle.

    The feathered ones will be just as popular as your pens. They are awesome. Please post when you get them on a knife.

    Those are very cool, Les. Drop me a PM if you're interested in selling any of the feather and fly scales. I've got some nephews and a brother-in-law who'd love something like that.

    You turn out some amazing stuff.
    Knife fanciers are very passionate about what they like. If one sees a knife he is really crazy about his defenses are gone, completely. You should be able to get really good money for those knives.

    Thanks Vaughn,

    I'm still working on perfecting my PR Knife Scales Embedding procedures, so could be a while before I have any for sale.
    Also working on getting a Canadian Registered Trademark for the Knife Scales and the Feather/Tied Fly pens.
