Steve,
I read in the thread Result, that thin fiber spacer was hard to come by.
I found some here-http://usaknifemaker.com/handle-material-hardware-c-95/spacer-and-liner-material-c-95-72/vulcanized-liner-spacer-material-red-fiber-015-8-x11-5.html
Tracy seems to have it in different colors.
When you go to to this page-http://usaknifemaker.com/handle-material-hardware-c-95/spacer-and-liner-material-c-95-72.html you have to scroll down pretty far before you get to the different colors.
Regards,
Fred

That is such great news, Fred. This is such great news for those who like to use the thin red spacer material!
Thank you for the heads-up. I've ordered some!

After ordering, I got this note from Tracy:

Thank you, Fred. Hope the DVD is of help.
BTW: Upon returning from ECCKS, I had a note from USA Knifemaker.com and they say that they only carry the dark red, which is more rust colored. The rust color works OK, but the bright red is a little more red. I've used the rust many times with no ill effects.

Alpha Knife Supply carries all colors of thin G10. By the way, I have been told that the vulcanized material doesn't hold up very well - G10 is far superior.

Sounds good. How do they work in the bend, at the front of the handle material, at the guard/bolster area?
What thicknesses are available?
