This was built up in '98 and had been the EDC till '18. This is the experimental piece that I try stuff on before the other folders get them. Cleaned it up today and it took 24 years off. A30 on the bolsters and body, 600 grit to the blade then anodizing the backstrap. Feel bad as it deserved to wear the scratches and gouges with pride. The handle scales still has gouges and scratches just not visible in the pic.
The dealer asked that I put pocket clips on so this was a test version. I personally don't like pocket clips but when a knife sits that could otherwise be sold with one, I'll take the sale. LOL...
Old school steel that had been part of a big heat treat batch many years back so getting through these blades.
