Victorinox Swiss Army Knife scales 5

I've been doing a lot of this lately. The star of today episode will be a Victorinox Solo. I made my first pair of scales for this model. They are made of industrial linen micarta - REZOTEX.

91mm Carbon Fiber scales... Yeah I can do that too! One pair is bead blasted, second is polished.

84mm neon green scales. First pair is beadblasted. Second one is beadblasted with a diamond pattern.

Another new color. Red transparent G10 for 91mm SAK with toothpick and tweezers. It looks like a strawberry ;)

Oh, and one orange pair I forgot last time. 84mm orange G10 with my own 'crocodile back' pattern. Very grippy...

VAULT OPENER Titanium Prybar

About two month ago, encouraged by David Bowen from, I decided to design a pocket prybar for my regular offer. As a base, I used the projects I made last year, and in short, that is how the VAULT OPENERS were created :D. VO is 11cm long pocket prybar, which gives a lot of prying power. They are milled from over 4mm titanium sheet so are probably one of the toughest in the market. I made them in two versions: for metric and imperial size hex nuts. Metric size is for M5 and M6 screws and imperial ones are for 10 and 1/4 screws. Both versions have a slot for 1/4'' hex bits. For the first series I made four pieces. All of them are stonewashed. Two are heat anodized for tan and blue (violet?) color.
As you see in the pictures they can be dress very fancy ;). I am adding a pack of colorful orings to each tool, including silicone GITD ones (don't let the picture fool you, they are not glowing as bright - magic of exposition!)

Victorinox Swiss Army Knife scales 4

Below you will find several sets of scales that I finished lately. As you can see, I am showing scales not attached to a knife. It is because I decided to sold the scales separately, so they can be attached to the knife you want. I also decided to start a gallery with my custom scales for SAK, so everything will be always in one place. You will find the link in the right part of the blog or you can just use this link .

Lets start with mall orange ones... Scales for SAK 91mm, orange G10, beadblasted.

Scales for SAK 91mm, orange G10 with my first attempt to make the reptilian patter.

Scales for SAK 91mm, brown canvas micarta, polished.

Scales for SAK 91mm, black G10. Stonewashed titanium with gentle grooves.

Scales for SAK 91mm, black G10. Grooved for a better grip.

Something special in the end. Scales for SAK 91mm. Jade and black G10 and GITD 'ninja' as a lanyard. Custom order with Mount Blanc map.
