Looks like another fine project beginning!
Can you give me a little info on the linear micarta?
Thanks

Hello Walker,

Linear Ivory Micarta is a paper micarta that has a bit more figure than normal Ivory Micarta. I bought this stuff maybe 40 years ago in the USA, so it might be Westinghouse, but I'm not sure.
It is very nice in appearance, you'll see.

You'd better take a closer" look at my Bearcamp Spl. Walker. It, along with many..."MANY" others is cracked!
I'm not sure this was ever a Westinghouse project but it followed Westinghouse "old yeller" at the Randall shop. It was "going" to be the replacement...but it cracked..."a lot"!
I only have 2 left in my "STASH", for that very reason.
Hope this helps...(or hurts, I'm not sure).
Stay Sharp, Capt. Chris

I did not mean the cracks looked good but the color if the material. Iím still really liking the resin ivory and like seeing other types of materials.
Iím certainly a ďwork in progressĒ on these things!
Thanks for the added info, Cap. I can see why the herd is thinnng down on this material.

Thanks for the heads up Cap.

Perhaps I was very lucky, I made about 10 knives with this stuff, and never got one back that was cracked, or a complaint. Also the 6 pieces I still have are still rock solid after 40 years. Fingers crossed.

It might be because I work the material with hand tools only, not on the belt sander. So it stays nice and cool.

Here's a second one I started recently. This will become a 7" fighter, kind of mid way between a Nr. 1 and a Nr. 14.

Blade is made out of RWL 34, with a true 1/4" thickness. Handle will be leather and brass furniture with brass/black fiber spacers.
I will keep you posted.
