These are pre-machined Damagrip™ handle scales for our Midwest Hunter knife kit. Pre-machined handle scales will greatly simplify the process of roughing-in the complex handle shape for this design. Damagrip™ is a USA produced composite laminate material that is designed exclusively for custom applications on common grip surfaces. Used in making gun handles and knife scales, Damagrip™ offers high performance in multiple designer looks and textures. Damagrip™ is easy to work, easy to sand and offers excellent artistic control. This material can be carved or 3d machined to create one-of-a-kind handle designs.
Unlike homemade micarta, Damagrip™ is strong and rigid and does not flex easily. This material can be directly drilled and mounted, or can be checker-filed and/or finished with a clear finish coat. The finish options are unlimited and the material is versatile enough to work into most any application where a custom handle is desired.
Our pre-machined knife handle scales are slightly thicker and larger in diameter than the handle tang they are designed for. This allows for proper sanding, shaping and artistic embelishment. They are also undrilled to allow the builder precise placement control and to maximize fastener options. You can use standard pins, mosaic pins or a number of handle fastners. The choice is up to you. If you do not have a scroll saw to use for creating the required handle shape, or you just want to begin from an easier starting point, using these pre-machined scales will help you insure that your kit completion will be smooth and successful.
