I recently got a Techno. I've had a couple, but didn't hold onto them. Anyways, the design called me back, but when I received it, I was surprised to see that the scales were noticeably darker than on my precious knives. The others' scales had a color that was very similar to the blade, whereas this is much darker and has a 'less stonewashed' look to it.
Additionally, it's the first Spyderco Ti frame lock I've ever gotten that has had lock stick. I'm hoping it wears itself in, as my others didn't have any at all, and this has a bit less of that precise feel I've come to expect from the Taichung models.
Anyone else notice this or have one like it? The color doesn't bother me, just interesting, but I'm a bit dismayed at the lock stick. I've come to expect the Taichung models to be near-perfect, as they're just that well made.
