    I'm not thrilled with the back spacer but the scales are out of this world!

    Thank you PBJS ll.
    Toothed full length back spacers are not for everyone .
    I could have gone with a full length flush toothed back spacer instead?
    Or a smooth full length?
    Or maybe a short one in some variation?
    Or are you a standoffs kind of guy?

    Mini Loco in Richlite (paper micarta)...

    @totemca: I'm not familiar with the knife. What was the mod? Was it the clip?

    L'chaim!

    I'd say it's a District 9 E170.

    There's also a E190 version, the numbers mean open length in mm.
    Nice folder with unique design from China with Sandvik 14C28N blade for around $90.
    I'd say totemeca's version is sanded and bead blasted, then anodized, also I'd say it has heat colorized srews and hardware.

    Nice job but @totemeca Why did you get rid of the surface pattern, is it looking better in pictures than in real life?

    @Moshe ben David

    wow @Adahn !

    it seems you was the one who did the mod...
    correct in every point my friend!

    i got rid of the orange peel texture because i wanted the knife to look more like my techno, and it does, but the sand blast finish is very delicate, and i like to carry my knives, so as you can see in some pictures it's starting to get some hair lines here and there...

    i am thinking about giving the scales a more distressed finish (maybe bead blasted?) so the use scratchs wont be so obvious... what do you suggest?

    I have moded some knives before and I've been eyeing the E190 for a while but it's out of my budget atm.
    Funny thing is that I especially like the orange peel surface, it would be interesting to see it anodized.

    I'd stonewash your scales and maybe re-anodize the scratches. Purple to see if it's looking good, if not, go for bronze.
    Or was bronze before the purple? Then just all bronze (haven't anodized in a while but I'm thinking about getting a bottle of Whink Rust and Stain Remover to re-anodize my knives without changing the surface).

    Presidio2 with black G10 bolsters & ironwood burl scales.
    Not quite done with these.
    I have completed the rough sanding stage & still need to fine sand and finish.

    There's something about Damascus, or is it just me?

    What a wonderful first ever post. No substance, just a troll-like question.
    What exactly do you want to read a reply I wonder?
    -Noo, damascus is utterly crap!
    -Oh, damascus, the swords of the gods are made out of it, you can cut through a car with one and shave afterwards.

    ...or is it just me?
