    Getting to work on this GEC #74. She's getting a shadow pattern conversion and fresh new SS liners. Gonna be a beauty when done. :cool:

    It’s got a cool etch that would get lost, but that’s one that would look sweet with a dark patina to go with that micarta.

    What's the color of that micarta Jason? Were the Stainless liners your idea or the customers?

    It's a vintage brown canvas crosscut I purchased from Murphy Made Knives. The liners were my idea and the customer agreed to have me do them.

    I just finished up the GEC #74 Mustang rebuild. For this one I made custom stainless steel liners. Covered it with a gorgeous vintage brown crosscut canvas micarta. The houndstooth shield is a creamy white paper micarta and the pins are all 410 stainless. The only thing I don't like about this knife is that it's not mine! :cool: Thanks for looking!

    I don't think there's any room for improvement there Jason. The shield is a real standout and the stainless liners set off the covers nicely:thumbsup:

    Hard to believe this is my first bone recover. :eek: Here's a GEC 92 with smooth giraffe bone covers, no shield in the works.

    I've been admiring your work here for a while. I always assumed this was jigged bone......
    Wow
