    I like your taste :)
    Is your frame bronze anodized? Or is it just the lighting in the picture?

    I got a Bushido filler tab and copper LBS for my Eklipse this past week, looks really nice with my copper standoffs and FDE scale :)

    Good eye

    Yes, it is a Bronze anno'd frame and liner from a flash sale last fall. I quite like the Bronze and Copper look, have a set of handle screws on the way, now just need to find pivot...

    That's beautiful! Having a bronze frame is the only thing I wish was different about my Eklipse. What color is your scale?

    Hoping there is a release of Eklipse scales someday soon. I'd love to get a ME Frag for it...

    I actually think that black with bronze/copper hardware is one of the nicer combos out there, here's my XM-18 dressed up

    I would really like to try a black/blue or black/green scale on my Eklipse though

    If like bronze, did you consider to anneal the pivot to bronze color? You can use a heat gun to be sure with the temperature, I bronzed my hardware on the highest setting (600 C deg) to a nice bronze tone, only one time I got a darker purple. Bronze wouldn't ruin the heat treatment afaik, at least if you don't do it on the blade...

    No, I did not consider it at all, especially without knowing what heat treatment is done to the pivot screws. Being a very low carbon steel it should not hurt anything to apply heat up to almost 1,000F, but considering the very long lead time to get parts up here (3-4 weeks +), it's not worth it for me to take the chance of breaking or mangling something.

    Found a pivot, small release of 3.5" pivots on the RHK site this morning and managed to score! :D

    I better don't ask what you pay for that as I guess it would be how much I'd spend for my next knife :p
    But I still wish you enjoy it :)

    Pivot screws are cheap, only $20.

    It's the Steel Flame hardware that gets pricey...

    If that's the case, you definitely do not want to know what the dragon clips go for (the below one is Sterling Silver, just to give a hint)...

    [​IMG]

    It's on my want list, unlike the Bronze Crusader Cross which I am actively seeking out right now (and expect to pay about the same as a good ZT...).

    Lightnig Oh, it's no prob to me to know the prices, it's just great to see such things and I wish you enjoy it as much as possible, I definitely enjoy your pictures and win from your knowledge :)
    My money goes into long-time investments atm, all paid in little but many doses, like pampers, baby clothes, etc... ;)
    But when the situation changes again then I think I'll get myself maybe a Sebenza 25, or 35 :rofl:, and another Mazda MX-5...
