    I just finished putting this beauty together last night. Hard anodized dark red scales, hand made c260 cartridge brass liners and a titanium keyring spacer for strength. This is the 'fanciest' one I've ever built.

    I had to grind the lugs on the inline Philips to get it to seat well, but its got nice snap. With all the springs in this one I had to make a compression jig to bend them in order to get the final scale on. For 2 or 3 layer regular ones I can bend them with my fingers. I see why other modders don't recommend going past 4 layers in a mod like this though, the pressure on the backsprings really adds up and I cant imagine doing a 6 layer.

    I think the brass has a sweet look with the dark red.

    Where do you get the scales or is that something you make?

    Standard scales I strip the stock anodize off, drill them out, then have them hard anodized.

    I think my ideal SAK at the moment would be scissors, pliers, and a bottle opener. Maaaaaaaybe a small blade.
