Stonewashed the clip of my Maxmadco today, quite hard to tell from the picture though
Your little Atwood blade, is so very cool. Where did you get it if i can ask such a question? And does it have a sheath? How do you carry it around without cutting yourself?
Stone washing, can you please tell me how it is done and what it involves?
Looks nice, L! Are you going to stonewash the rest of the pen?
Thanks Kyle !
No way, it's to beautifully maschined and finished to give it a stonewash torture
I can imagine to give it a sandblast finish in a few years when it's scratched up though.
I was lucky enough to get this one from a kind guy on a German forum. Wasn't cheap but definitely not as expensive as they run at the moment ! It has a small kydex sheath and usually I carry it in my front pocket or as a neck knife. Also used to carry it in my wallet for quite some time but that doesn't work with my Saddleback bifold
Stonewashing is a barrel finishing method used in industrial way for smoothing out metal parts. A lot of parts in a machine run this process till they get finished up for their final treatment. For example the backside of the clip on my Maxmadco was already stonewashed, so I guess Jim stonewashes the parts of the pen and gives them a nicer finish at the end.
Of course I don't use stonewashing for smoothing things out, for me the look of the finish is more important
Instead of huge containers filled with a special kind of grinding stones, I use a quite simple and cheap method for giving small objects a stonewashed finish !
Hope this clears it out for you !
Thanks so much for taking the time to reply to both my questions. Very interesting indeed. You have some great gear my friend!!
Thanks, you're welcome
Different style of a pocketdump
How do you like you're EO5? Thinking about possibly getting one for my keychain...
Have this one for years now, has helped me out on temperatures till -17 *C, went swimming with me for several hours and spent light on 4000m a.s.l.
There are newer versions with better run times and outputs, there is also a stainless steel and Ti version of it but his one will work for me till it dies
This knife started it all
