    Thanks for sharing this. It's inspired me to make my own scales.

    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.

    I don't know how to qualify, how bright is bright, but is it something like the attatched image?

    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)
