GITD dots -- a clever idea for "what to do with the extra holes!" Took me a moment to remember glow-in-the-dark -- I was thinking GIT out of Dodge?
Thanks DougC-3. Yeah I got onto the whole GITD thing when I bought a glowing backspacer along with some scales from Cuscadi for my PM2. At first, I thought it was a bit of a novelty thing, but what the heck, at least it would allow me to try a PM2 backspacer and I could remove it easily enough. (The glowing backspacer actually made me think of a cutting tool from Mass Effect, if any of you are gamers.)
After a while, I actually came to like it as a feature. It didn't glow really on its own, so it wasn't noticeable in pocket, but if you hit it with a short blast from a decent LED torch, it would show up easily around camp in the evening, if it was being used as a general camp and food prep knife. Also you didn't need to worry about misplacing it, if you were caught field dressing a deer while dark came on. And I quite liked how in your tent at night or early in the morning when getting ready for a pre dawn hunt, you could put your hand out in the dark, and have your knife at hand.
You can just see the backspacer in this pic, not glowing though:
Later, when commissioning my Stretch scales from Suingab at G10.lt, I included it in the list of features I wanted, although, the smaller surface area doesn't glow as strongly as the PM2 backspacer.
