SAKs with custom scales thread
« on: March 12, 2018, 06:15:59 PM »
The cellidor, nylon and alox are great scales for our SAKs but I think having custom scales make it more personal and unique. I have seen in others put leather on their SAKs. Others have used bone. Maybe somewhere out there have use expensive jewelry for their SAKs. I wonder in this forum, what kind of materials were used for SAK scales. Bring it on!  :tu: :tu:

Here are my 3 SAKs with custom scales. One is a Spartan with a 3D printed CF scales. Second is a Super Tinker but modded to become a Fieldmaster with Ti scales and third is brass on my Explorer. I still a rainbow finish Ti scale coming. I am in search of beautiful indigenous hardwood in Asia. I am also thinking of adding G10 or Micarta SAKs into my collection of custom scales.

What have you?  :gimme: :gimme:

Great idea for a thread MrWilson.  That brass explorer looks really good!  Did you make the scales?
I've put Pacific Yew wood on my Workchamp, Compact, and most recently Yeoman Mechanic.

Thanks man! Nope. Unfortunately I don't have that skill yet nor the tools even to do some custom scales. The Ti and the brass were made by a modder  from Bali, Indonesia.

Wood really makes the SAK look elegant.  :like:  :drool:

I wonder what's the wierdest scale materials/design that people have done here.  :gimme: :gimme:
