took the whole knife apart and with a 1/8th drill bit put small holes down the "Back spacer". then I mixed GLO inc. powder and epoxy. http://www.amazon.com/Glow-Inc-Ultra-Green-Powder/dp/B00BNEX8QK/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1368277189&sr=8-9&keywords=glow+powder takes about 10 minutes to dry. then sand...

difference in two VG10's?

I Have a delica and a dragonfly... but the dragon fly goes dull way way too quick.

are the hardness' different in the two models? bc my delica will hold a hell of an edge for a long time through harder use too
