Less Silvertech would be a good thing...
:twak: :twak: :twak:

Ouch ouch ouch

In fairness to Thunderpants, Silvertech is primarily for collectors in my mind - because it looks nice. Doesn't do the tool any favours other than that :shrug:

In regular daily use, it's brittle, doesn't allow use of plus tools, and the scales clearly show all the crud and grime collecting beneath that's hidden with conventional scales. This is why I never bought another one - Silver-tech is drawer fodder, and I don't buy SAKs for that. It's not a great choice for the scales on a working tool IMHO
Oh, what a scathing review for the Silver-tech scales. :o I agree about them showing off the debris under that pretty surface but just about ALL of the translucent scales do that too. Now a great idea was shown here before for coloring in those empty gaps to give it a nifty techno look while making the debris filled channels all but unseen.



Once off you might want to have a play with removing the silver paint, it can lead to quite a nice effect :tu:

Midnite Minichamp...

Silver Tech scales for other sizes like 74mm and 84mm SAKs are in order.
I really want completely transparent scales to be honest. Wanted them so bad I destroyed a set of Silver Tech scales... but that's another story.

Sorry, I'm a sucker for camo...

More choices on more knives would be a good thing. A camo Mountaineer, for example.

Sorry off topic for one moment and then back to the topic. Does this help you need lol
