Title: G10 Bush Baby - Sheath Pics Uploaded
Post by: PetrifiedWood on March 19, 2012, 07:37:15 PM
One of our members asked me about scales for a Bush Baby. I told him I'd need to experiment a bit. Turns out I'm faster than I though I was! :D

Anyhow, these are black G10 scales on a bright finish Bush Baby. The material is 1/8" thick, for a 3/8" total handle thickness. Looks like the experiment was a success. I didn't expect the hardware to work with material this thin, but with a little careful grinding to shorten the screws, it worked.

The leather sheath pattern I use can work with this model, but it requires a slightly longer snap strap (about 1/4") because the scales don't allow the knife to insert quite as far into the sheath.


Thanks for looking!

Yes, it is. :)

This one has some optional handle scales on it though.

I think this lil bush baby looks much better with Diapers on it .. :)     I think a knife this size would be a handy one to have out there in the wilds.

Glad to hear you got to spend a night out.

I'm going to try to get a sheath together in the next few days. Hopefully sooner rather than later.

Gryphon - I hear you. I sell a few items here and there to pay for all the toys.   ;)

You know how that goes.

P wood, I'm loving my second bush baby.  They're like peanuts, you can't stop at just one.

Beautiful handle in G10,
