    Pine Cone Handle/Scales

    I just finshed up another knife. I used pine cone scales. I really like the way they look. What do ya think??

    Did you just put the whole cone in a soup can and back fill with epoxy? Did you die the epoxy?

    The pinecone is cast in alumilite resin I believe... Billy's scale set look like the ones I've used from http://www.ankromexotics.com/. They are a little different to work with, but make a great handle.

    Those scales look great! I have seen pine cone scales before and had my doubts about them but they look a lot better than I thought. Might give them a try sometime in the future.

    One thing we learned. To make a start and keep plugging. When I had fights at school, the little while I went, I just bowed my neck and kept swinging until something hit the dirt. Sometimes it was me, but I always got up.

    Cory is right. This is cast. The alumilite resin works almost like cow horn. It was very easy to work with. I like the look.
