Thank you for the link. I have not heard of Richlite previously. It certainly is not commonly used for knife handles. Micarta stands up very well to trauma/abuse. I wonder if Richlite is similar.

I think it was developed for kitchen counter tops so I imagine in addition to tough it's also waterproof.

I previously posted a stacked leather LC. I have one more stacked leather. This one is a sowbelly which is probably my favorite pattern.

Stunning! I also, think that's my favorite shield ever. I've never seen the official name of it. I'm assuming it's a chess piece. Queen? Bishop?

I think it's called bullocks.

How about a composite photo of four custom shields John has used.

Probably. John isn't known for duplication. I got it from Reno Herron. If it was yours Roland it has one bug. Do you remember?

I sold it to someone here at AAPK but i do not recognize that name. I am not as 'fussy' as some but mine did not have anything i considered to be an 'issue'. Perhaps it is not the same knife. Can you post a picture of the knife and explain what the issue is ?
If it was mine i might recognize it.

Here you go. The only problem is the blade has some play in it when closed. It opens smoothly and locks up tight.
