I have no idea. The V10 powder from GlowInc "will loose 5% of the glow over 10 years" according to their website, so I would assume similar lasting power for MoonGlow, depending on what was used to make the material glow.

Or this . This was the one (and only) manufacturer that I could find. They don't seem to have any information on the material though. I bet if you wanted to make your own micarta (I know some folks do this), you can buy Glow Inc's powder and mix it into the resin. That might work well. That has bee...

I agree. By machined, I meant working on the material in general (cutting, chamfering, polishing etc.).

Sal: MoonGlow Material Info

Hi Sal, A bunch of people, including myself, over on EDCForums.com are interested in finding out more about the MoonGlow scale material that was used in the EDCF Manix 2 ( see this thread ). I was wondering if you would share anything about the material, and the testing you did with it. Specifically...

I can just barely squeeze a piece of paper between the blade and the liner. Would this need to go back to Jon and he would deal with CS or would I be able to? It also requires pushing the blade after releasing the lock until about 1/2” left then it will snap closed. My others you just release the l...

did you get an envelope or a box via usps? not to ***** but my box was pretty crushed :( Yeah, mine was slightly crushed/ripped on the corners. A box would have been better, but probably more expensive for Jon. But I did get another off centered blade :) I had hoped they would have the centering fi...

Speaking of angles, , ,I use the 30 and 40 degree paradigm that is inherent to the Shaprmaker more often than not. Do you do the 30° then 40° sharpening each time you sharpen a given knife, or is the 30° only occasionally, like it says in the Sharpmaker manual? What's the difference between the two...

I charged mine with a bright flashlight before going to bed. It is probably bright enough to read a book with. I woke up after 5 hours of total darkness, and it was still glowing at least as bright as the tritium locator in the flashlight next to it on the nightstand. Agreed. Fully charging from a ...

I spent forever printing out a spyderco logo small enough to fit on the side of the knife and cutting it out, but I guess paper doesn't block enough light, it still just made a circle on the scale. =\ Awesome idea! You'd probably have to make the "stencil" out of something completely opaque (metal,...

This has been a major pet peeve of mine about Spyderco's online catalogue for a while. The pictures aren't that great. No offense. Honestly, that was one of the things that turned me off of Spyderco's in the beginning: the lack of good photos on the manufacturers website (obviously there's the forum...
