cool! one question,what is peel ply?
Since G10 is smooth, to add texture when they're making the G10, cloth or similar medium is put on top. As it dries, the cloth or whatever is peeled off, leaving the grippy texture on the surface of the G10. Used a lot in knife handles (Spyderco, Emerson, etc).

Hey bud .. thank you! ! .. actually peel ply is g10 that they add a layer with a certain release agent on it so that the layer can be removed after you do whatever your going to do .. like cc said .. knife scales or in my case .. slingshots :) .. gives a nice grippy texture to anything its on .. they have different peel ply .. coarse .. medium .. and fine .. this one is the coarse
