    How in the heck do you get a pine cone to come out like that? Amazing.

    Very nice! I was always Leary of the wearability of the stabilized pine cones. Some have said they were soft and would not stand up to hard use.

    I would say, from my experience, they are middle of the road, once on the knife they become stable, I have used them a lot with no problems to date. They are as stable as all the other resin type scales I have used, as hard as a lot of burl woods like California Buckeye or red wood burl. I will give this one a run for the money as I plan on EDCing this knife at least through next archery season. I'm not going to use it as a hammer but it will be used a lot. I'm more interested in the performance of the Elmax, I know its good steel from what I have heard and read, just want to make sure the heat treat methods I have at my disposal make a high performance knife.
