Can you tell us about the bigger, darker Spydie logo on the blade?
The enlarged Spydie is the result of some testing of my new split fiber laser. I frequently offer for sell complete knives and was looking for an identifier that set my modified Spyderco knives apart from factory offerings. Once I marked a couple of blades and reassembled the knives I felt I got a bit carried away with the upsizing! I've abandoned the larger Spydie logo and settled on a more subtle personalized obverse logo.

ImageDelica was gifted to me and clip had been stripped of top layer of coating on top of clip giving it a gray color . I took it off and applied heat to top and bottom and changed color to a very dark gray with a bit of shine . MG2

I wonder if that would affect the springiness of the steel.

Yes it would look very nice against the scales . I have a Lynch on my Crucarta so I won’t be doing that mod ! ;) I may change treat whole clip later , just experimenting. Love how the satin clips change colors and are effected by different light . Dan

ImageThis an early clip mod done years ago when working at Caterpillar. I had this clip put through a Wheelabrator to remove black finish. It left a grippy texture but not a pocket eater . Dan

Looks cool Dan. Like a bead blasted finish.
