Victorinox Swiss Army Knife scales 7

Fresh photos of new SAK scales.
84mm orange and red scales with a grill pattern

91mm hunter green G10. A strange piece of G10... Looks like micarta.

 91mm red G10 scales with some psychodelic grooves

Two pairs of two color G10 scales for 91mm SAK. Blue-black and red-black G10 with some waves and grooves. There sure will be more scales from two color materials as I think it looks really cool.

Just some boring titanium scales for 91mm SAK with tweezers and toothpick ;) Beadblasted and stonewashed.

Yeah! Green canvas micarta finally! Green Canvas is always the best ;) Scales for 91mm SAK.

[HOW IT"S MADE] Making a double sided leather paddle strop

A long time ago I decided to make a leather paddle strop to give some more sharpness to my knives. Making a paddle strop is very easy. The simplest version is just a piece of leather glued to a wooden
board, but I decided that my leather strop will be more complicated. I wanted it to be not only double sided but also each leather strap to be double sided. As I can use both side of each leather strap, it gives me four surfaces of different roughness for different sharpening compunds. Everything is mounted with screws so it's possible to mount sandpaper instead of leather. My paddle was made of pine wood. It's size is about 4x60x2cm so it can be used for very big knives.
