I thought this might interest some of you.
I put up a video series on my Youtube channel testing the tip strength of a G10 blade.
In the last video I show how to restore a damaged tip in the field.
Here's a link to the first video.

Definitely thinking of smaller models. These get made to match the real steel blades I make so as smaller models get produced in steel these G10 models will follow.

Neat. I've often wondered how well a composite blade would stand up to use and abuse.

And that right there is exactly the reason I'm making these videos. In this day and age there's no good reason to be left wondering.
