I think it was on their Facebook post somewhere that they were supposed to be stone washed but they ended up satin. No explanation. A little bummed myself but I’ll still be glad to get one.
I see the confusion now...
I saw that comment from them and i don't think that to be true. The picture on the store page clearly shows it is not coated. And Spyderco never did so either on any other compression lock DLC model. It gives problems with the lock somehow.
I check their website about once every 15 minutes. Please free me from the servitude!
