Diamond weave G-10

Anyone know where to get diamond weave G-10, or if it is even available anymore? I'm down to my last bit of silver, and I haven't seen blue in ages.
Thanks!

From what I can tell, the diamond weave is getting more and more difficult to come by, and if you do find it, its terrible expensive. I order a couple of full sheets of G10 last week from Masecraft,(not diamond weave) and asked about the diamond weave...they don't carry it anymore, but they did find some "left overs", and told me that for a 5"x12" piece, it would be $35! I passed. If Masecraft doesn't carry it, then most of the other knife supply outfits won't have it either....as most of them get their G10 from Masecraft.

Thanks Ed! I'll probably call Masecraft and see if I can snag that piece... maybe hold onto it for the occasional special knife.

Not sure whether they're the same thing. Here's what the diamond weave looks like in sheet form (You can see my hands and the camera in the shadow.)




And here's what it looks like on a knife.

That product is also known as silvertwill. I found some in Alberta Canada, but not sure if the supplier has any left.

"Diamond Weave" was a name that I came up with in the mid-2000's when we introduced it at KnifeKits.com. The actual industry name is "Texalium" sheet. It's made like carbon fiber, but with different fabric layers. When I first found it, it was being made with large horizontal layers, very ugly. I asked the manufacturer to lay them off vertically, with more weave density and we started calling it "DW", because that's what it looked like. We also added a different epoxy mix to clear the resin. There are copy-cats now, but we still carry the original KK blend.

Here's what it looks like...



Here's a link to order it....
