BTW, this stuff penetrates fast. I used about a quart of boiling water with about 3 teaspoons of dye and it was done in 10 seconds. Next time I'll probably use a higher water to dye ratio so there will be more time to check the shade. It would be cool if white scales were available separately from Spyderco. There are hundreds of colors that can be mixed with the base Rit dyes, but they'd only work on a white base.

    That's a great color. I noticed my orange Delica is way more visible outdoors than the yellow, but I still love the yellow Salts. I'm jealous of the hourglass clip you have. Where'd you get the knife?

    Yellow is much better for visibility underwater. Neon yellow would be even better. Future model maybe?

    But I agree, orange is hard to miss anywhere above sea level. I got it on Amazon. I think all of them now have this hourglass clip.

    I stone washed me Sage 2 today

    I used light rock and a lot of polish and oil in the slurry so I got a smooth lightly washed finish.
    That will not show up in my pic I tried

    I had time so here's a pic of a Sage 2 apart


    And this is a after pic of the blade

    I forgot to add it took the black right off the bug but left the printed words intact.

    I like the looks of the gostly lazer cut bug.

    It fit's the look I want from this knife perfect and looks amazing in the light.

    I'll try take a cool pic if I can.

    I do everything on my phone.

    Please forgive my spelling and pic's. I try Lol

    Maybe I need new contacts, but that doesn't look very stone washed!

    Thanks for sharing. I like the disassembled picture.

    Your contact's are good Donut

    I let it tumble for a hour but I used smaller rock and more oil and metal polish mix than normal

    I like the effect but I can't take a pick of it'

    It's got a light stone gloss finish it's different.

    It came out very even.

    I like it

    Shared these in the Wood Scale Mods thread too, but thought I solicit thoughts from here also.
    Decided to "striderize" my Persistence with more of a gunstock shaped butt end a straighter top line using some yellowheart wood.
    Not quite as shiny and poliched as it will be once I am finished, but its rounding into form.

    Thanks.
    Its a wood called Texas yellowheart. I think it is also sometimes called "Bois D'Arc" Great stuff to work with. It was not stabilized, but I am planning to put a few coats of gunstock refinishing oil on it which will accomplish pretty much the same thing. Once thats done, I'll put it on the buffing wheel with some polishing compound to give it a real shine. Maybe I'll post another pic or two upon completion.

    I have been wanting to try Moly Resin to protect the steel on my Cruware mule (prevent long term corrosion), but I was a little worried about the 300F curing time for Moly Resin (same for Cerakote) as 300F is awfully close to the temperature for tempering many steels. However, I found that Cruware's tempering temp is around 1000F, so 300F was not even close to affect its hardness, so I gave it a try.

    After sandblasting the finish, I applied and cured the semi-gloss black Moly Resin (M390 mule shown for comparison):











    Lets see how it holds up

    Well I decided to try and stone wash my green tenacious sprint and this is the results. I did a practice run on a ukpk that came out more subdued that I might re-do.





    The set up was far from sophisticated just a plastic bottle some rocks from a stream down the road and wd40. I had a particularly large rock that I think should have been left out as it made deeper indentations and a few gouges. Overall through I am happy with the out come and I think it works well with the green sprint color of this knife.

    Next up I would like to try and wharncliffe a knife (probably the ukpk) any tips or knowledge would be appreciated as I have no clue how to proceed. I have a dremel tool that I was thinking could work.

    Looks great!

    I "wharnied" a Caly a while back. Just took a ruler and drew with a marker a straight line from the tip to the back of the blade. Then I ground it down (dip in water so it stays cool) with my Dremel and diamond bits and a diamond disk to make sure it was straight. Next, just sharpen the new edge. I'm sure the pic is at the start of this thread. It's a really easy mod. Good luck, and show us when you're done.

    - best wishes, Jazz.
