Is it just me or is the Anthem not really a looker? Disappointed purchase

    There may be less hardware to customize, and obviously you can't change scales or back-spacers on an integral. However, being Ti, you can experiment with anno, and there are a couple different options for the pivot and clip (which is my biggest gripe on the Anthem, and will be replaced shortly). This is a quick contrast sand on the chevron peaks of a anno'd 781 I picked up here recently:

    If the fit and finish is good then I’d be happy. It’s a nice blade.

    Got my Anthem for my 40th birthday, couldn’t afford a sports car. In the end, I agree with a lot of the sentiment here-it’s a knife. Premium, overpriced, and not for everyone. I really enjoy mine, the action is indeed pretty awesome. It was my first knife with bearings at the pivot, and ti handles, and while it’s neat, I’m now realizing how much easier it is to maintain my knives with washers in the pivot. So it goes. I love the overall, understated design and look of the knife.
