That is a fantastic mod to that knife. Gnarly stag for sure. You could remove paint from an old barn with those scales. Nice work, beautiful knife!

Great job Glenn. It’s definitely nicer now, but it wasn’t too shabby to begin with!

Outstanding Glenn! ::drool::
The way you chose to lay the stag out on the handles and the way that you hafted it is a perfect 10 out of 10!
I'm betting you probably had to thin that stag quite a bit didn't you? That's always a bit of a challenge. ::nod::
Great job my friend! ::handshake::

Thanks for the kind words everyone!

Yeah Dale, stag layout and hafting is a bit of a gamble, eh? Even after taking off alot, it was still a bit fat, but I made it work. I've had to scrap a few choices here and there on projects, as it sometimes doesn't turn out the way you envision it. I am also of the school where I don't think the mark and pile side have to match. I try to make them compliment each other in terms of fit and handling. I pretty much let the stag show me how it wants to look.
