Hello everybody :D
For those of you who have always wanted to have wooden SAK scales you dont need to search for them becouse today i will show you how to make one.
Unfortunately my SAK fell into the hot water and scales are narrowed and they cant fit on a knife (actually its Garlach Poland not SAK but its the same technicque for making SAK scales)
Wooden scales look more "professional" and expensive since all SAKs are made with red plastic.
Ive done this with knife,file,sandpaper and saw so you wont need anything expensive 

Step 1: You will need

Hi.Very poor finish , the handle is not good at all. Sorry I have see much better hand made handles. Also I notice this wood is not aceptable for this work , it can easy break longitudinal it is for roof structures not for small parts. Regards. I potrudi se malo mnogo vise.

Mogao sam ali sam napravio ovu dršku samo zato jer mi se plastična rastopila, a i drška je zaljepljena na metal pa bi se prije odlijepila nego pukla

Nice! Want to do this to mine. Didn't realise the plastic scales are not glued on until I looked up a youtube vid. Just got to find a nice bit of scrap hardwood now
