    Did you dye this knife fully assembled or were you able to take apart and reassemble a knife secured with pins?

    Sah-weet!

    HOW? Details, PLEASE?!

    What did you use?

    Did you have to disassemble it?

    Would your method work on other starting colors than white?

    Did you also put the blade in the water as well? Or did you dissasseble the knife?

    Looks great! Too bad my ladybug is black ... Maybe I should search for a few white ones .. I wonder how well the tangerine would look

    These 2 knives are pinned so the whole thing gets dunked...My Delica will be taken apart and only scales will be going in. I hope the tangerine looks close to the Rescue orange.

    I wish I'd known this before I traded off a white Delica I had, never cared for the white. Keep of posted on how it wears.
