Nice scales Cambertree! Are those aftermarket or pirated from another Delica?
Thanks Connor! They're custom scales - contoured 4k carbon fibre, made for me by Suingab at g10.lt in Lithuania.
I'd like a Stretch 2. I prefer clad, but might buy monometal. Differentiation from the last run, as Cambertree suggests, could be good.
I agree, I actually prefer the clad blades too - mainly for the extra corrosion resistance in the pivot area. But I figured a variant monometal run might tempt Sal more than reprising the same clad Takefu blades again.

I dunno if I've said this before, but that's lovely
You may well have, Jon my friend, but I won't let it go to her head.
She is indeed a lovely knife to carry and use, and I certainly hope for more Superblue so those of you who missed out last time can enjoy this steel in a nice thin Seki blade.
Occasionally I get an urge to customise a favourite steel and model into 'my ultimate Spydie'. This Superblue Delica was my first experiment along that line. (And my contoured linen micarta handled HAP40 Stretch and Cruwear PM2 with contoured black canvas micarta scales were later experiments.)
