Been thinking of changing the color of my Vtoku2 Endura and wonder if that grayish blue could change to a sky/powder blue?

Anyone dye their Vtoku2 scales differently?

Had some Sapphire Blue dye and decided to give it a shot and see what it would do to a Vtoku2 Endura and Manix2 lw Maxamet grey. Just to compare the results of the coloring I laid them next to my BBS m390 para3.

Also dipped the hb for a change of scenery :D I didn't remove the blades at all and used the methods mentioned in this thread but didn't use vinegar at all. The Endura took less than 30 seconds to achieve the color above and the Manix2 took a couple of minutes longer.

The Maxamet blade ended up getting some light pitting but it's a user as well so didn't bother me....much. Still happy with results. :spyder:

Got some better natural sunlight shots of this Sapphire Blue. Funny how the tops of the black G10 look teal in certain lights.

Not sure if that has anything to do with dye, they're definitely black when not reflecting light.

I don't dislike the factory scale colors at all, but man, that looks about perfect. I'd love more blue handles like that, perfect with jeans. The Manix and Endura above look great too.

That looks very good! You used the RIT Dyemore?

I'm going to do mine in a light or medium purple, at some point.

Edit: That modified sheep always looks awesome! I might just have to buy another and do that.

Yeah that's all I've been using for G10 these days. I prefer the liquid anyway but I tried a box of regular black powder and it didn't take at all. The Sheepscliffe (wharniesfoot?) is the best blade shape ever.

Awesome, I've been looking for someone's thoughts on it.

Yes, I have to agree. It looks like the only thing that could possibly kick the Caribbean Leaf PE out of my pocket!

Wow, I can't look away from that. That is a GORGEOUS blade shape. I guess I have to pick up a Caribbean and have it reground now. Might as well get a PE and SE made up while I'm at it :D

Thanks :D

The only change I'd make (if I could) would be no thumb ramp. Then I'd be in EDC heaven.
