    That was an old mod I had tried, that's why there's a bit of paint still on there. But, that's not the big mod. I swapped a hollow ground Manix blade into the handle from a BD30P sprint.

    Polished superblue caly, with rit dye'd handle, went for pearl grey, didin't take as well as I'd hoped, turned out kinda pale and uneven, but I kinda like it, gives it some character. Next to millie for comparison.

    I realised that the digi-cam is actually just natural g10 scale with the pattern overlayed in the top layer, if you sand back the scale far enough to remove the layer that has the pattern, you are left with the translucent natural g10. Its not quite that simple as the fixings pass through the scales etc but thats minor trivia.

    Im sooo happy with how it came out, Im a sucker for natural g10. I love the translucence and the way it looks against the steel.

    Ah if only it glowed in the dark !
