Just received the newly released Spyderco plain edged black DLC Automony 2.
I also recently purchased/received a 7" Hogue EX-F01 w/cocobolo scales (like the one below) off of the BF Exchange but the scales looked so nice that I ordered a pair of solid black textured G10 scales to replace them so that I wouldn't mess them up.
Would have posted a pic of the knife w/the G10 scales but Hogue apparently never issued them w/this particular blade. So, I couldn't find a pic of it and am too lazy to (at the moment) to post one myself. Will replace the pic below if/when I get around to doing so.
Hogue also sent me a hex key that normally comes w/the knife but that the BF seller did not have. Received the G10 scales and hex key in just a couple days. Excellent CS at Hogue!
BTW, the textured G10 scales are actually great and much more practical for use w/the knife.
Love the ZDP-189 Eagles...just a great knifeReceived this beautiful Al Mar Eagle 5HDET-ZL in Laminated ZDP-189.
In my mind this is amongst the best EDCs ever made, you get a 4" (101.6 mm) blade but it only weights 3.3oz (94 gr) and a handle thickness of 0.32" (8.1mm)
In other words, this knife is all bite no bark and that's what I love!
