I made the scales and wedge from red/black G10. This is one of those blades where I do enjoy the look of the pitting. It adds some character. There is a little chip that I still have to hone out before I can shave with it but I couldn't wait to post the pics. The first two pictures are the scales after rough shaping. From that point its hand sanding from 220 grit to 2000 grit.
