Help me find a handle material for this knife.

Post by Scale Military » Sun Apr 21, 2019 4:12 am

Hello all! I was gifted this knife in the POS and kinda wanted to re handle my TL-29 and maybe add thumb studs to the blades to make the easier the open.
If anyone would have ideas for handle materials I would be most grateful! :)

A sugestion: Black linen or paper Micarta.

That appears to be in good shape.

A few electricians that I have rehandled.

Exotic woods are nice, but it is hard to beat stag. My next one will be done in ebony.

@FRJ Yes it is, it still has the writing on the second blade.
