    Default W&B Restore

    This was one of the first blades that I cleaned up, and the second set of scales that I've made. They are Koa wood. Not as east to work with as I had expected. I kind of free handed the shape a little and it shows, but I'm still fairly happy with them. The wedge is made from a Nickel.
    The scales were soaked in melted wax to infuse them.

    I love the grain of the wood too. The hardest part was no matter how much I sanded, I just couldn't get it as smooth as I would have liked. Since I didn't coat the scales with anything like CA or poly, the pits in the wood show.
