    So I am thinking this one since it is already cut down and not in origianl scales is a perfect candidate for some serious Modifications Muhahahahahaha

    Colors first let's go basic and then I will see what I can match up, haven't decided on material yet ..

    Thinking a wicked point and perhaps a cutback heel


    Thank you for the input

    To me that blade is screaming out for a dark grained wood scales but, since we're talking acrylics let's go with navy blue.

    I really like the acrylic miami or red flame you have pictured on your site.

    I think the shorty needs to bold and loud, just like the little guys with Napoleon complex.

    A nice blue and white marble swirl would look slick!

    Red was the first thing to come to my mind.
    Can't wait to see what you turn out this time, Glen!

    I voted black & yellow thinking of a dark stormy night with bright lightning. So a black background with yellow streaks (like marbling) running through it.

    I voted for black. I think it makes the blade itself stand out more. But that's only my 2 cents. :)

    I voted green, but I really like Etoyoc idea. But either in orange and black or green in black.

    Here is the blade after a bit of re-construction

    6/8 +
    Edge length 2 1/2 inches if you look close you can see I kept every bit of the length we started with :)
    The steel was polished out then I blued the spine and tang but wiped it down with a paper towel and WD-40 rather quickly to give it more of a time period look...

    Since the tang was blued I'd say I'm going to change my vote from blue scales to the red and black scheme. That would look great imo.

    I will stick with the Blue with White Marbled Swirled for my suggestion.
