Well you did a good job. It looks unique and ultra cool.Thanks! First, I put a stonewashed finish on the blade. I did it poor man's style without a tumbler and just used the tumbling media (from Harbor Freight) in a container and shook it by hand for the better part of an hour. The scales are aftermarket micarta. I also ditched the deep carry clip and threw on a heavily used one I had from another Benchmade, and I stonewashed it a bit too for good measure. Finally just a leather lanyard and the "bead" is actually a brass fitting I picked up on the plumbing aisle of Ace Hardware. Overall just a fun little project to make it my own, and while it's not perfect I'm quite pleased with the results.
