- come in .030 and .060 scales and sheets
This g10 is .030" or .060" thick and used as liner or spacer in your knife handles.
It is called a liner when used on a full tang knife and sandwiched between a scale and the tang.
It is called a spacer when stacked in line in a full tang knife.
When it is used in a folder between the scale and metal liner it gets confusing. Call it a g10 liner.
The advantage to this material is it doesn't absorb water and comes in a wider assortment than traditional vulcanized liner material.
TIP: This is g10 and needs to be really roughed up for glue to stick to it. Use a 36 or 40 grit abrasive and scratch every bit of you can for a good bond.
