    Evancamp13, I think it is pretty safe to say that you are happy with your first Fairly. :D
    Congrats man!

    I think that's a fair assessment. :). She could use a little love from Mr. Fairly, whoever owned her before me beat the snot out of her. Blade is back to usable, finishes are a little rough, could use a little fixing up. Maybe a little color here and there :). Not sure.
    Thanks!

    Just got this, love how light and small it is. Now its time to find a clip for it to carry. Anyone have any ideas?

    You could mount the kydex to a small teklok which would enable some sort of belt carry. I love me some horizontal carry.

    The lovely thing about the backpacker is that it's also small enough to pocket!

    Very nice paranoid wrap on that backpacker, Dominator.

    I just tossed on a small soft belt loop from a holster. Right now I have it strapped to my EDC bag (5.11 Moab 6) on the strap pad. I might try it on my belt actually.

    Thanks, my first attempt. I just feel like I started it off wrong. Am I wrong? I just feel like the first one should fall into place nicer.

    Change it up a bit, cut it short to leave the hole open to add/remove one later. Here is a shot with the belt loop as well.

    That blue orange peel is just fantastic. There is just a hint of purple at the edges. I'd love to see this in person!

    Thanks! As a random note I noticed the orange peel is very durable... it work hardens the Ti just a bit.

    I stonewashed this one after anodizing it blue then hit it with a second "Metallic" ano so it has a two tone effect on the pocket work areas. The hint of purple is from oils either from the detent being lubed or my hands.

    Oil - I spray a q-tip with cheap spray on lithium grease... touch it to the detent ball and that's about it. There is no need to disassemble or re-lubricate...
