    Nice piece! No losing that! The blade is slick and workmanship neat! Great work!

    Wow, that's probably my favorite acrylic color you've done yet, as always, fantastic job on the restore.

    Glen! That is as always wonderful craftsmanship! Now I have two questions! #1. Did you do this to keep Connor begging and begging me about Custom Scales for his 8/8 Friodur and # 2. Has it always been the lovely bride who has been behind the 'Magic' all this time!!

    Brand new "Tequila Sunrise" acrylics, the name and the layout were the wife's idea

    The blade was polished out to a near mirror except the tang, the pitting from the old scales was just to deep to get it all but I did get it all cleaned up at least...
    The scales were sanded out to 12k Micro-Mesh then polished with PlastX..
    Lock washers are stacked SS on Nickel Silver pins...

    The 3D look of the colors in the scales just never seem to show up in the pics no matter what I try with the camera and lighting...

    Anyway here are the pics
