Finished product

Today I finished the micarta handles on my Tops knife. This was a factory second blade, so I’m not sure which blade it is. Based on the Tops Knives web site it looks like a Badger Pup. I used my belt sander to remove the excess micarta, and my Dremel to finish the fine work and carve the nitches to match the blade.
I nicked the blade a few times, removing the powder coating, but I will get better with practice. I like how the knife turned out, and it is a lot more comfortable with the micarta handles over the straight steel. I think I found a new hobby.
