    That XL in CF is surprisingly light also Great knife. A little wide for my everyday but in actual use, it runs circles around knives its size.
    Upcoming: N5 CF/S110v, N5 LWT, DragonFly SB, Marcin Slysz Bowie, Farid Mehr K2, Peter Carey Rubicon, Gayle Bradley Fixed Blade, Phil Wilson Sprig, Mule Team 4V

    So who's expecting there Manix s110v today ?
    Still can't get mine out of my pocket Love this Spydie it's so light but feels great in the hand . What's cool is no matter what your wearing be it shorts or sweats you can't even tell it's there . I decided to throw a Lanyard on my other lightweight Manix 2 trans blue and ordered another for my Drk blue s110v so I'm able to tell it's still in my pocket lol .

Of course you can try to continually sand it to finer grits and attempt to attain the original look, but I honestly doubt you will be able to do so without many attempts. Unless you would prefer tactile qualities over visual qualities (and the manix 2 handle is already plenty comfortable) doing as such is very risky.
    Yes, of course. G10 would get dull if you start sanding on it, but then it can be polished too such as the scales of the Vallotton are. I don't know how much you can polish the FRN, it seems to be a bit more "rubbery" than G10. I have a Byrd with their normal FRN scales, something like that could be used as a guinea pig for some sanding attempts. The Byrd and also my Delica have sort of a matte finish to start with so maybe sanding with 600 grit or finer wouldn't be all that much different from the original finish.

    Looking at shunsui's photo I notice that there is a thin line of surface border around the textured sides. If you try to round off the edges of the scales very much you would grind all the way through this edge. My Byrd is the same way. The border is bigger on the Delica plus the Delica is already rounded a little bit.

    12 in stock at Howe's now.

    I just received mine today, and I'm very happy. I liked the original version but really wanted one with a better steel, and this will be an interesting experiment in playing with S110V!

    The issue with sanding FRN is that it's cast...so the surface finish is going to be near impossible to duplicate. You can polish it, but it won't look the same as the rest of the finish. Still you may be able to polish it out well enough that it won't matter or be noticeable that much, just depends on how much of a perfectionist you are. What bothers you more, the cast lines along the back spacer or maybe having an inconsistent finish?

    It's hard to tell in this pic because of the lighting, but it's the same knife before and after (before is on the bottom, after on top). I've since opened up the index choil even further. That's without any kind of polishing, just high grit sandpaper. It has a more dull finish than the rest of the knife. If nothing else I'd just wait until the knife has seen a lot of use and maybe gets dropped a few times so it has some wear anyway and then see what happens.

    I know some of you are just trying to help out another forum member by offering to sell, but it's still against forum rules, even if the intention is good.
