View Full Version : New Handle

Sense, no one has taken me up on the offer, on the Buck General, I was wondering, does any one know of some one who will replace the handle, it is just a little to slick for me, and maybe replace the guard with one that is just a little larger?

The handle is a phenolic based material, basically Micarta, if I am not mistaken - having it bead-blasted would give it a decent amount of texture, bring the grain of the micarta more to life and make it generally grippier.

As far as completely re-handling it - you might talk to a custom knife maker about that, might be able to find someone on www.bladeforums.com (http://www.bladeforums.com)

Try skateboard tape. I have used it on a very slick micarta handle and it worked well. It's cheap and if ya don't like it just rip it off & no harm done to the handle. Take care!
