All three have attractive qualities, IMHO. However, I would personally choose the bead blasted blue version if I only had to choose one.

Any chance of a full DLC? Blackbird Pie in the dark sky... :p

I do like Pie in the overcast sky (1) though... :)
Blueberry Pie in the Blue skies look cool, but can't say if I'd purchase one.
I don't know what I'm saying anyway, I've never even held a PITS yet. :(

I prefer the bead blasting or original finish.

I like both the current finish and bead blasting a lot, but bead blasting does have the added benefit of hiding any scratches that build up over time on the handle.

I am looking forward to picking this one up in the future.

A finish that masks scratches preferably stonewashing. Of the three the middle blue anodized looks fantastic but it'll have the same scratch-prone surface.

I don't like the current shiny finish that much, but would probably buy one of the bead blasted versions, anodized or not.

That is really great news Sal, thank you. I like carrying and using my PITS folder very much (it's in my pocket right now in fact). It is the knife I typically take with me on business trips, it is a very competent and attractive knife, with great ergos and a solid "lockup" when you have a good grip on it. Looking forward to this new version. Cheers, Radioactive :)

Sorry Sal, do you mean that the next run will be a combo of bead blasted and anodized or do you mean that bead blasted will be available as well as blue anodized?

I really like the bright blue. I think that would convince me to pull the trigger on a PITS as a travel knife.

I have and like the present shiny version but the bead blasted or stone washed are tempting.
