Came across this the other day. It looks awesome. Has anybody had any experience with it? I am in the middle of placing an order and I am thinking about ordering some for some future knife projects. Thanks.

It's supposed to be the new hot shit. I've thought about getting some, but the pimpy factor is kinda high. If you look at eagle grips website, eaglegrips.com they have more colors.

Wonder how it machines? (chips etc) It looks like something I'd chuck up on the lathe for spindling turning.

Looks like celluloid to me. Everything old is new again!

Is it acrylic based like Corian?

I have some I won on the Knifedogs forum that I have yet to use. I will try to figure something out and put it up in here somewhere.

I figured what the hell and ordered some. I actually kinda like it a lot. It doesn't have the plasticky feeling I thought it would. And if you don't buff it to a high sheen the pimp factor is low.

The blue one is a little too busy for me but I really like the black and red. I don't think it would be too bad even if it was buffed some more

Here's the last color I got.



This is the Desert Camo and I did it with black G10 bolster and white G10 liners

How necessary is the white (or whatever color) liner?
