    You have to hire a modder to put them on for now.

    Is that an acid wash?

    Yes that is. Washed in ferric acid used in circuit board making.

    I have a leatherman micra. I THINK it is stainless steel. Would I be able to just drop it into the acid or would that not really work out?

    How did you screw on the pocket clip? did you tap the scales first or add a smal nut inside the scales? I have never opened an ALOX up so I don't even know if there's space for a small nut on the inside..

    You would have to take it apart. You can't get acid on the pivot areas or it will not work correctly.

    No nuts. I tapped and threaded the holes before I put it back together. However, you can do it without taking it apart using what's called a bottom tap. I do it often for people.

    My latest mod work... built myself a golfer but with the phillips replacing to corkscrew... had to convert the 91mm scissors and spring to fit as I don't have any 84mm standard scissors... while it's still apart, I had my friend make me the copper scales and brass liner...

    Here is a picture of it after some time in use... Patina sure looks nice
