Well Rats,
I'd say most, if not all, of you know of the Road Through Pain that one of our fellow Swampers has taken to bring us handle scales for the Swamp Warden.
I know it is old news now, but I'd like to express my thanks to Ben Piatt who has gone out of his way to make them available to us.
So here is a few pics (with a bigger brother):





I know the pics are not the best, shitty light, late evening and all...

Ben, you've done hell of a job mate!

THANK YOU!

And the tanker with green micarta scales


There is not that much less blade on the Warden compared to RS, but there is a big difference in weight... I can imagine this little bad boy paired up with Chopweiler as a perfect bush/woods combo!
Ben, once again, thank you! (where are the old emoticons when you need them? IIRC there was a 'bowdown' one...)

Very nice work. And that does look like an excellent combo.

I especially like the black on black.

Here's my black with orange and sage with green/tan/black G10 laugh

And another hats off to Ben for his work! I've got a couple sheaths from him coming as well!

The sheath is great! Retention is very good, fit is nice and snug!
The only drawback is that he used smaller rivets so the regular hardware will not work.
DT, that 3 color G10 looks sweet!
