    Nice scales, what material is that? And instead of putting the on a black bladed one, did you think about etching the blade in the same pattern?

    Those are G10 from suingab. How could the blade be etched? When I purchased those my intentions were to put them on the RAT I have with the black blade. The black RAT has satin liners unlike the black Tenacious, so I installed them on the satin but I think they will look better on black.

    Oh, suingab's scales are really awesome. For the blade etching you'll find many infos on youtube, e.g. from lazy lizard gear. Or you just check out the modding thread on the forum, you'll find some hints there.

    I for example like to use ferric acid, besides eating up steel it won't etch your hands or clothes but just leave rust spots on them.
    My last try was etched handles on the Sanrenmu 710, this deep etch too 1 night though ;)

    But if you get the wrong steel, like Ganzo's 440C then it can easily turn out like this ugly monster :p

    Of course I acid washed my RAT2's blade and clip, too.

    On the RAT 2 I especially like the painted clip. The logo got etched very nicely and it was really difficult to strip the paint thereafter with aceton. On the Kershaw/Emerson CQC-5k the spay paint is a joke and was washed away from the acid, that scull would have looked really cool though...

    That Rat of yours does look good. Thanks for the info. Not sure I'm into that, I'll read up on it though.

    Thank you. Even more due the fact that the scale material was a scrap piece of orthopedic stiffening ready for the waste container ;)

    The cake was awesome. Wish I had an Endura or Military on me though. Wasn't expecting to have to cut cake and the Native is a bit short :)

    Cheese cake or ice cream?

    I have a serious sweet tooth and that cake is driving me crazy. :)

    Neither. It was a normal cake with a couple layers of cream and a thin layer of red jello on top. We went to Niagara Falls for the weekend for one of my daughters friends birthday and the mom brought everything else except a knife. I was going to bring my Spyderco Gayle Bradley but swapped it with the Native at the last minute. Now the GB is in the pocket.
