    OK, here it is:

    Naked knife is 11.39oz (323.1g) and 0.355" (9.01mm) thick.

    The pair of scales weigh 1.67oz (47.5g) and each measures 0.259" (6.58mm) thick at its thickest point.

    I forgot to weigh the knife before drilling the tube rivets out, but my other black canvas micarta one weighs 13.26oz (376.3g), which is 0.2oz (5.7g) heavier than the remainder of the maroon micarta knife. That puts each tube fastener at ~1.9g apiece.

    WOW! Great info! Much appreciated! Can’t believe it’s that light, even without scales! :thumbsup:

    Gutted paracord wrap. I used 9', but could have gotten away with 8'. Happy with how it turned out.

    That handle looks too much like “ hey where is the scales”. Make it like the Mega Warden and they would sell better. 68200222-3496-45ED-84A3-0E5488AE89BD.jpeg
