Well, after years of use, my old GIN-1 Native started to display some blade play. So, I sent it in for a tune up, along with an old battered G2 Tuffram Civilian I got second-hand. Got them back today, with the following results:
Native was replaced by a new one. Not GIN-1, not CPM440V, but the newest CPMS30V! How cool is that!? <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>
Civilian, which had a broken tip and acid-burned pits on the blade was completely repaired. The original blade was resharpened and the pitted part was smoothed over with no traces of the old damage. The tip is now terrifyingly sharp.
And all that for US$5. Need I say more?
Great Many Thanks Spyderco!
