Ok, this is a sprint just asking to be rite-dyed. If they did this in a Para 3 I'd almost rite-dye it, as long as I could get 2.
Yeah, the scales are too light
And since the whole knife isn't blacked out, it's kind of strange using DLC on a steel without much of a corrosion problem. But whatever: they'll sell 'em, I'm sure.
The story goes that DLC was originally used in Spydercos as an anti-glare coating and not for corrosion resistance. I think it has evolved now to where some people do buy it for the anti-glare, some buy it for the perceived (accurate or not) corrosion resistance, and other buy it purely for looks.
My love affair with DLC covers all three. I don't have a need for anti-glare, but I do like that quality. I do believe it provides some level of corrosion protection. I'm not a fan of patinas. I really like the looks of DLC whether it is blacked out, paired with earth tones, or paired with neon, or even white. I also really like the looks of "weathered" DLC after it is seen a lot of use.
So I say more DLC on everything please. I'm really not a huge fan of the PM2, but I do believe every true Spydie fan should own at least one. So I am making this my one due to the great looks and a steel I don't own.
