Handles- Wa handles out of laminates

Fri May 31, 2013 11:00 am

Has anyone tried or had any luck making a Wa handle out of any of the popular laminates- G10 or One of the various types of Micarta?

I seem to recall seeing a Bloodroot Blades knife with a laminate Wa handle, but that's the only one I know of.

I did some western style handles using laminates that I made up. I have used Micarta as a ferrule material, too and I did one wa with my Water Camo and Black Micarta ferrule. I will be starting to mold up blocks again soon, too!

Yes, several. Why?

Some people want that "bomb proof" handle and they think micarta is the way to go. Can't really argue with them, as I think it too.
