You can use G10/micarta for knife handles /scales

Step 1: Laminating

  1. mix 2k epoxy with glow in the dark powder
  2. laminate glass fiber fabric
  3. press it for 24 hours

<p>Thanks for sharing this. It's inspired me to make my own scales.</p><p>How bright does this get? I want something as bright as possible so that if I set my knife down in the dark while camping in the fall, it'll be easy to spot.</p><p>I don't know how to qualify, how bright is bright, but is it something like the attatched image?</p>
from what I've seen, you can mix in as much glow powder as you can without the mix getting clumpy in order to get the best brightness. it also depends on the type of glow powder (look for the best reviews)
where can I get &quot;glass fiber fabric&quot;??
<p>Interesting. What do you use this for?</p>
You can use it for knife scales / handles
not to bash but common joe should atleast know to read cans for instructions on mixing stuff. epoxy ya can get that at about any walmart or autobody parts store at the auto department very common for repairs ect ect and the glass well usually sold there also or if your coastal theres marine industry suppliers available. I think its a good enough instructable it gave me a idea for something new just need to let the fingers do some googling to find supplies. prolly what most people would do even if they were given links so get off his case about his short instructions.

<p>I have to say this is the least informative instructable I've seen. I guess you have to be well versed in making G10 to begin with for it to be useful. It would help to know where to find the required components as well as some specific steps to actually doing the laminate, mixing instructions, etc. The idea behind an instructable is to allow the average Joe to follow the instructions and get the same result.</p>
