  1. I like this particular model. My only problem is that it looks a bit extravagant for EDC...

  2. As you can see in the first group shot there is a variation in color and grain pattern of the scales. So you can have a less extravagant version which could please your taste. :)

  3. Just wonder from where you got the pivot tool ;)

  4. Repetitio est mater studiorum. ;)
