    I just checked on my brothers : .05 inches (give or take a thou)
    Mind you, I didn't take it apart, just measured where the g10 and Ti didn't match perfectly. But that measurement looks alright to me.

    Good Luck

    Ordering my supplies for a bali... Decided to go with G10 over TI liners. My tools are limited, and I hear TI is hard to work (Thanks Bill)... I figure Ti liners with G-10 and stainless would be more at my level.

    I would use .065-.080 for the liners to add some rigity/strength and weight.

    Yeah that ^^

    I have a few customs with that configuration and they're .080 Ti liners with G-10 or CF overlays.
    Gives them a much better feel...

    With everyone saying that the 51 is too light and ordering Ti scales to compensate, why do you not use SS for the liners? Be much easier to work with too, no doubt.

    I do agree with you on that I just got my 51 and not to down it but I'm not into the g-10 handles and it is to light. I think you need more then the liners that's why I am going all Ti. Ti has I think the perfect weight but you guys know more then me so that's why I definitely agree with the SS idea cheaper to if your not going full Ti.

    I thought about stainless, but I would like to get some practice with TI, so I figured this would be a good place to start...

    I plan on adding weight by putting stainless tips at the end of the handles... Should be sexy... If I can pull it off :manganr:

    That's pretty interesting would like to see a picture if you do, do that. It would almost look like a hole different knife I think.

    I actually made my second knife ("made" as in it's still sitting unassembled because I'm too lazy to HT it) using Ti liners. I believe they were .067. I also have limited tooling, so I used was a jigsaw with some metal cutting blades and a low speed. That is, until I got a bandsaw. If you keep the jigsaw from shaking up and down, it cuts pretty well.

    But if you have something better, use it.

    You seem to be advancing quickly, and your grinds are WAY ahead of mine.

    Cant wait to see what you do.

    A jig saw was what I planned on using, wish I had a band saw, but gotta start somewhere...

    Thanks for the kind words!!

    Im not sure if you have already tried one, but a jig made all the difference for me... It will limit some of what you can do, but it helps alot. Ive been practicing free handing, but holy shit its hard..

    Got any pics of your work?? You should post it up :thumbsup:

    Hopefully soon. I need to grind the third and send #2 and 3 out for HT before I finish. Maybe next week when I get a chance.
