Not hard to work with at all. It does produce super fine dust that can work it's way into your handle material. Most notable with light colored micarta.

cut them to length with a metal band saw and then grind flush like any other pin.

Make sure you're wearing a respirator when grinding any kind of CF.
TRIPLE DITTO!!!

With the condition of my lungs, I can't use CF anymore....of course unless I wanna kill myself. Carbon Fiber is one of the most toxic, health damaging substances we use in knifemaking. If you can't stay clear of it, for the love of Pete....PLEASE protect yourself from it!!
