WOOD SCALES: Victorinox Hiker with Queensland Black Walnut Scale

This is an assembled Victorinox Hiker in Queensland Black Walnut Scale with exposed flushed rivets. 

The rivets were peined as normal and then filed flushed against the wood scale.  I haven't perfected the technique yet as not all the rivets are the same size. 

I applied several coats of Kitchen Timber Oil and let it soak through the wood and then waited for a few days for it to completely dry.  I then sanded the top layer it a bit and applied several coats of Carnauba wax for the final finish.


  1. Have you considered only using boiled linseed oil on the wood and selling the hiker on ebay? I'd buy some for sure. Looks awesome!

  2. I would love a tinker with ebony wood. Plz contact me if you can be commissioned.
