    I've got a question for the Spyderians, I'd like to bronze my new Caly's clip.
    With "normal" clips that's always working very well with the heat gun and the tension didn't suffer on any clip.

    Can I do the same with the wire clip or would I get an expensive paper clip from such an action?

    Thanks in advance and btw, I really like that Caly, my first Spyder, but I had really had to break the edge on the choils' teeth to make it comfortable ;)

    I wouldn't take the risk since if it kills the heat treat there's not much beef in the Clip to give any tension. Have you tried Electrolyte anodizing? I somehow did that with VG-10(even though I think it actually is Ti oxide that has built up on the steel)
    Be careful, those spyders propagate like crazy :D but sharp edges are , sadly, always a problem with spydercos

    Thank you for the advice. I really like the knife but round edges would be nicer on this one so I'll round the cf scales and already broke sharp edges.
    Did anyone here acid etch and stonewash such a laminated blade made of ZDP189 and 420J2 and what do you think about stonewashing a lockback generally? I would cover important areas, maybe the whole ricasso, with nail polish before etching anyways but I was concerned about the scratches at the lockback area. When it's not cleaned and well oled it's feeling gritty right away and I really like the smoothness of this knife (even though I prefer the ease of use of a liner lock).
    Maybe somebody could post a pic of a stonewashed ZDP189/420J2 blade, please?
