    Yes it's cool and I've been contemplating on whether to get this done at some point. There was a member over here who had it done... Ah found it: link, post #14.

Pity I have to sell it.
    As far as chipping or being afraid to use it goes, I don't think it will be an issue at all. Its ment for edc tasks and will do fine. As long as the future owner knows what they have and uses it accordingly, it will meet and exceed their needs.
    Why do you have to sell it?

    Spyderco already has great design and never ending new developments but a little Handcraft never hurts to help one enjoy the use of your prized possessions ,) I'm not so comfortable with the metal aspect of this (yet) so here's a starter with my first hand filed scale Mod ..


    There's some GITD and Tritium mods on the way .. !

    I posted this in the main forum, but this is where it really belongs!

    There are more hours in this than anything else I have done.

    Diamonds, then chromium oxide on leather, then leather, then clean cotton (basically just to wipe off any fingerprints or other residue)....oh yeah, and time.
