I made this filet knife for my brother-in-law for Christmas. It was the first time I’d worked with Dymondwood because I typically only like to use natural materials. I decided to try the Dymondwood because of its water-resistance (this is a knife that will be around the water a lot, after all).
I was surprised at how easy to work the scales were. I did most of the work with a coping saw, although my Dremel made the final shaping much easier than if I’d have used a rasp. I’m very pleased with how it turned out, although I still much prefer natural woods. My lovely wife helped me make the sheath.
