    I use lots of it . Just look at some of the post I put on here.
    First it’s not as tuff as G10 or micarta but it’s not brittle by a long shot. If I was going to use it on a big chopper I would use corby rivets and a good glue . It’s sure tuff enough but not sure how tuff the glue line will be. I use g 10 for my big choppers.
    Sand up to 600 then lightly buff nice stuff. It’s a lot easier to work with than g10 or micarta.
