    Has anyone done or doing custom materials for the ck lionsteel Barlow set? I’m wondering how my warhorse would look with some amber jigged bone.

    A great idea.
    I don't know anyone doing this. I have thought about doing it myself. I don't have a Shuffler or Dom, but do have a Bolus. I remember a post somewhere where someone asked Mr. Knifeswapper about obtaining extra scales from Lionsteel. I believe his reply was the company didn't offer any and were not interested in doing so. It's too bad as I think that would be a nice option to switch things up once in a while.
    It would make these unique knives even more so.

    As often as I discuss "deal spotting" not being allowed, in this case I don't really see a conflict with our BF dealers. None of our dealers are selling such covers. Unless Gary feels otherwise, I'm going to leave it be.

    (Side note: I won't even spend $160 on a knife, let alone spend that much for fancy covers.)

    Thanks, frank. I hadn’t found anything among our dealers but didn’t consider that rule. But I appreciate your thought on that.

    haha! I’ve spent MUCH more on knives, but I highly doubt I’ll spend the cost of the knife on covers. But who knows. I’ve had some overtime lately hah!

    thanks everyone for the input! @knifeswapper , please please show us the finished product!

    While it's food for thought to have custom slabs on offer, I've always been enthralled by these 'standard' Ram's Horn :cool: If only I could find a dark Ram Bolus ;)
