    The covers are not bleached out. They're undyed, and are darker now than when they first came out of the tube.

    What do you mean by "sanitize?"

    They are factory polished, Jack. The only ones with "slag" are the Ancients.

    It reads satinize, as in put a satin finish on. Not sanitize as in kill bacteria.

    When they are preserved for many years in the factory and then released to collectors who care for the history!!

    I have 2017 Ebony TC Barlow with sheepsfoot blade. Is it all steel construction even though it doesn’t have “STL” marked on the tube cap? The pins, liners, bolsters, and spring all have the same color as well.

    Thanks in advance for the answer.

    All the TC barlows are all steel construction.

    Thank you Charlie. Your Schrade Cut Co museum piece is what dreams are made of. Hard to fathom old knives in that condition. Thank goodness for factory collections!
