    Theres a real nice picture on thier site. I was about to let myself fall in love with the Bronze...but I denied myself. I wanted to see it in person. I don't like the creokote, myself, and wasn't sure if the bronze was actually a shade of metal or a coating.

    Cerakote doesn't really suit HDS in my opinion....they are plain, practical tools...not 'peacocks' ;)

    That's a clicky clip - doesn't work on the rotary. Now it'll cost you $69 to get a clip :(.
