I hear that the Micarta stains and some times it looks kind of cool, giving the pen some character.

 

Anyone else like the way the stain came out to be?

 

Share pictures of your stained Micarta!

 

The Micarta I had a bluish stain on the grip section that I liked.

 

Pictures doesn't do justice to how the stain looked, I really liked it

What if you were stain the micarta with other colors, I wonder how it would look...

Well, you can get colored micarta for knife handles-http://www.jayfisher...htm#Color_chart

or http://customfilekni...ew-micarta.html

 

As to coloring it yourself? No idea how it work, butI can see how it would be tempting. Think I'd use an eye-dropper.


Some people say they march to a different drummer. Me? I hear bagpipes.
