... Am I missing any other blue FRN varieties?

Great pic!! Does the Teal one count as blue? I think it would look good in the progression. :)

So I got a Delica with the V-Toku2 / SUS410 blade today.
Upon examination I found the engraving on the clip side different to the one on my Endura.
It looks like it someone tried the laser the first time the "S" and the "C" are not bows, but look like a little wiggly.
The two "I" turn in different directions. The "P" looks actually cool and the "A" looks like it has been engraved twice.
The presentation side is perfect.
Is it possible, that the laser had some trouble? I bought from a reputable dealer.
Can some owner please check theirs. TIA

That's certainly not usual. I'd be curious to know what could cause that.

Earthquake? Espresso? Couple of shots and that's what my handwriting would look like....and some misspelling.

If it’s a blem, that’s kinda cool. Otherwise it looks sketch.

Here's what it should look like. VG10. My Pakkawood looks like this one to. VToku Manbug is fine.

My Vtoku delica is the same way.

My endura is good though.

I find this pretty funny, to be honest! :D

I just checked my Delica, and sure enough, it's the similar to those above!

Lol. That's funny. I guess there's always a new guy in every shop, he can't just sweep floors all day.

Are you sure? I thought mine was normal too until I looked at it under magnification.

so weird, it's hard to notice until you look close and compare to others. But mine is like this too. Maybe the engraver went down and they had to stick a guy on freehand duty to gets these out the door, lol

I think it is worth hearing from Spyderco on those. Wouldn't this process be done by machine? It looks very odd.
