    Default Geneva Cutlery Co. 5/8 w/ Buddel Scales

    Here's a little razor porn to brighten your day...

    You're looking at Walnut-Kiaat fusion scales on a Geneva Cutlery Co. 7V (5/8 hollow). Brass spacer, brass hardware, adjustable pin.

    Note: Kiaat is horridly porous (see photos) I tried everything I know to fill the pores before the poly, but to no avail.

    Looks good floppy. Try thinning your poly some and sanding with 320/400 in conjunction with the poly. The sanding dust with the poly can fill the pores in. Let it dry then sand it back down smooth. It's kind of messy but works. It also adds more time to the process. I haven't tried this with scales, but it does work on other wood projects I've done.

    Very cool choice of wood.

    Way ahead of you. I tried that method when doing my sample chips and found that either the poly was too thin to fill the pores right or too thick to prevent dulling. Kiaat is just plain difficult to fill.
