Mike, some interesting new scales on the Magnum Fox River run this time. Can you give us some details on availability of the natural materials that we haven't seen before; will they be available on other larger and smaller Barkies in the future? An I've done some searches for Kirinite; how does it compare to G10?

Kirinite is a new material.

It appears to be so good that it probably will replace all of our other acrylic materials.

We threw it on the concrete floor full force - the normal acrylics we use would have shattered.

They Travis Froze it overnite to -2.

We then threw it again and it did not break.

I would say that it is not as tough as Micarta or G-10 but much Tougher than any other Acrylic material that we have ever used.

You will be seeing more of it and it comes in a lot of colors and color combinations.

It will be interesting to see what variations appear with time. I'm still bummed out about the lack of availability of "smashed hippie micarta", however. Ya just don't get over some things........

Smashed hippie Micarta ? A description please !
I can't come close, even with my Liberated Lunch Tray Micarta - I found a pair of ancient ('65/'66) cafeteria trays, burgundyish, made with chopped rag micarta. About 3/16ths thick, laminated two pieces for each scale using CA glue, buffed out REALLY nice with self made mokume bolsters. I keep an eye out now for more of those trays...

I think it was Butch Harner than made the Smashed Hippie Micarta.

Butch is so busy making and selling his beautifully executed and super functional Knives that I really don't think he has time to make any more.

I have watched him go from a newbie maker to a master class knifemaker over the years and it has been fantastic to watch.
