Ok my descriptions didnt show up.
I make my own micarta. The black handle is made from black canvas from a pair of cargo pants from Goodwill. I am making 8 more for groomsman presents for my son's wedding. I also make my own sheaths.
The smaller EDC also has a micarta handle I made from green canvas. It went to my son.
The knife with the wood scales was also for son. I inlayed the end of a 30-30 cartridge from his rifle. It has a twin that went to my dad with Ash scales from a baseball bat.
I still fine tuning a lot of things but I am liking how they are turning out. The steel is very hard and a little challenging to put an edge on but boy are they sharp.
Thanks for the kind words.

What's on the other side of the 30-30 case?

I cut off the top of the cartridge, seated it in the wood and epoxyed it in place. There is one on both sides.

I learned on Youtube. Cut strips of any material really, I have seen paper used. I cut the canvas in strips, soaked it in fiberglass resin and put it in a small wooden press I made. I stacked about 10 to 15 layers then pressed the heck out of it with some C clamps. After it dries, it is very hard. I then attach the scales to the knife and shape with my belt sander.
