    Just recently arrived from Lewis Pride a custom HMH design by Matt Redding. I will let Lewis describe the build in his own words. Along with it came a brace grip Targa and RGH in brushed aluminum brass pins and rubberized carbon fiber grips.
    The core construction started off with a nice 5mm thick brass core, outer layers with bone linen micarta scales and earth brown G10 spacers inbetween.
    I wanted the try what is called heirloom fitted scales, used mostly by knife makers. Where the scales are inset slightly from the edge of the handle, and the edges rounded over.
    This is a fiddly process which request things doing in a correct order. So you aren't finishing and refinishing, shaping and re shaping and so on.
    The scales are built up of a deep brown hessian micarta and beautiful piece of oak burl, spliced together with bone linen micarta and earth brown G10 spacers.
    With a brass pin and lanyard tube.

      Thanks pal, I think all Lewis builds are spectacular he has some great pieces of art . In my opinion he’s the best to ever do it his frames are so intricate.

      Have you thought about the aluminium one or are you after a custom one? If you fancy a trade rather than spending money then I could possibly sort out an aluminium one for you?

      You are the man Muz, i have an aluminum targa, i have always fancy a custom scorpion, but i know it will not suit me, Bills frames are pretty big for my liking. Really appreciate the offer tho.
      Be well mate! :tu:
