    Hey Guys,

    I have quite a lot of kirinite in stock, most in 1/4 thickness, and some in 1/8. These days I hardly use it anymore so if someone wants kirinite scales, I propose that you simply snail-mail me a cardboard cutout of the scale, and I will make a set of scale blanks with pin holes for just the material cost plus shipping. I'll list the specific colors I have later.

    If the material I have is 1/4, I will simply cut it lengthwise to make a pair. This has the added advantage that you have scales with a bookmarked pattern.

    It is similar to acrylic. But it polishes more easily and with better shine. But most importantly: when you sand it, it does not give off the nasty solvent stench that you get from sanding acrylic. I once stank up the entire house when I created a pair of acrylic knife handles. Never again.

    Kirinite is slightly more expensive, but working it is just so much nicer.
