Rene, that FM-1 is amazing, if Les was to open his book that would be the first one I would order.

Here is my first and only Les George (second on the way):

Knife Maker


Here's one I found at the Wanenmachers' Tulsa Arms Show on Sunday. A dealer who I rent my table from had a bunch of knives out and off to the side I saw this G10 knife. I looked at it and thought I'd recognized the handle profile from somewhere. After asking the dealer about the knife, he described the maker as a Marine who had worked with explosives...

AH HA!

This would be the only knife I bought at the show.

dang Bill, that's a blast from the past! :)

I made 3-4 of these in mid 2008... Always thought about making more, but haven't get back to it.

Les, please tell me what steps and grits of sandpaper do you use when fitting scales to bolsters ? Frank

I think I fit those scales with about 220 grit on the disk. I dont put fine finishes on G-10 because I want to take advantage of all the grippiness that I can get out of it. So I pretty much always bead blast the G-10.

I am not organized enough to have a "usual way."
