Thanks. It didn't come out exactly like I wanted, but I am pleased with the result.

Hi, how you do that? You paint it with special paint/color?

I'm not sure, but I think people put nail polish of the spots they don't want dyed. Or maybe superglue

I believe it's done with hot glue. That way you only have to peel it off after you've finished dying.
Time for another :spyder:!

I used Rit dye to change the color. There are many Youtube videos showing this process.

The stripes were achieved by applying hot glue to the knife before dying. I got the idea from a bladeforum member.

Here's a pic of the handle after I applied the glue.

And here's one after it was dyed, but before the glue was removed.

Most of the glue came off easily, but there were a few stubborn spots that were difficult to completely remove the glue.

My favourite Spyderco so far. I love everything about it, except it is not stainless. This is my solution - DLC.

The finish looks really professional on that blade. Matches the clip well and reminds me of the Boron coated knives that Kershaw made a while back.

Well, after being out of action for a few weeks, I finally got the energy to get back in the shop to do some fiddling around. It sure felt good to get back in the saddle again!

This knife started life as a well-used green Urban that I purchased on one of the Forums. The knife had lots of dirt and gunk inside, but it cleaned and polished up after I disassembled it. I found some really nice snakewood slabs at the Blade show and sliced off some bookmatched scales for this one. Snakewood is a native of northern South America and is closely related to bloodwood and some rosewoods. The wood is very dense and hard on tools - and it is also pretty brittle. I ran into some problems with chip-out when counterboring the holes and had to spend time repairing them. All-in-all, however, it is a very strong wood and works well as the structural member in this unlined knife.

I sanded the scales out to 1200 grit, finished with one light coat of Tru-Oil and topped it with Ren Wax. The wood gets a nice finish without the oil, but I wanted to continue carrying this knife and needed to put a little sealer on the scale to protect it. Also, I've found that oil from the pivot won't leach into the wood as much if you seal the inside of the scales with a light coat.
