Making Micarta Ideas

Ariel Salverra

First guy I saw do this. He's awesome!

Start with a stack of fabric, impregnate with polyester or epoxy resin...

Place between two oiled plates on the press over night. The press gets all the bubbles out and makes the micarta solid as a rock. It comes out looking kinda nasty, eh?

Now work it a bti and you see what's happening. 3 dimension tie dye. A controllable process that produces neat designs for handles and other purposes.

Polishes out pretty nice!

Micarta can be quite dramatic...

Blue Jeans Micarta

Nice series from British Blades forum:

Start with strips from old blue jeans. Impregnate with resin.

Wax paper and clamped boards while it hardens...

Looks blah at first but finishes out beautifully! The ring pattern is because of the layers and how they intersect the curved surface of the knife handle.
