I started on the scales.

Image

I finish my bolsters first, then I fit my scales to the bolsters. I don't have a pantograph, so this is done with the grinder and files. I hate this part. When the fit looks good held up to the light, I mark the scale and bolster, then superglue the scale in place.
Image

I drill the holes for the scales through the liners.
Image

The final shot for the night. The liner soaking in Feric because of the tap I broke in the last hole I had to thread...

Here is a little more scale work.

I round my bolsters first, then I put on the scales and match them to the bolsters.

Here are the bolsters and scales mostly finished.

Grinding in the thumb ramp to get to the thumb stud.

I started off with the thumb studs.
Image

I needed a little more gription on the studs, so I decided to use my high speed rotery tool and put little divots all over the dome.
Image

Then I go back a stipple over the divots to even things out.
Image

Here they are installed.
Image

Next I preped the liners for bead blasting.
Image

In the blast cabinet.
Image

After blasting.
Image

I'll be grinding the blade tonight sometime.

I started the day off with sharpening the blade. I put most of the edge on with the grinder, then I finish off with a vice and stones at 20 degrees.
Image

Hair popping sharp.
Image

Time to etch my mark on the blade with an Electro Etch system.
Image

The stainless bolsters are stainless damascus... Here they are in some Sulferic acid.
Image

I wanted a subtle look so I went with some 30 turn Damasteel.
Image

Time for final assembly. I use Super Lube on the pivot area, and some blue Loc Tite on the screws.
Image


I will post the finished pics in a new thread.
