So, I got the knife from the ebay bid.I paid $10.50 for it. At that price, I often have some trepidation as to what it's actual condition is going to be. This one was, aside from standard scuffing on the scales... flawless. Freakishly good condition.Now I just wait for the set of factory Sapphire scales from FelineVet to show up. It's going to be SO pretty!
I did the same thing except with a Super Tinker. About the same price from ebay, and sapphire scales from Felinevet

And the ebay find with new sapphire scales...(Image removed from quote.)There's no chance that I'll confuse it with any other SAK I own now. Looks REALLY nice in the new duds.
There is only one way to avoid scuffing/scratching on a celldor scaled SAK...Never open the box.Actually they CAN get mild scuffing in the box just from jiggling around, so you get a situation I like to call "Schrödinger's SAK".We cannot know whether or not the box has been jiggled excessively, and consequently, cannot know whether the scales are scuffed. Since we cannot know, according to quantum law, the SAK is both pristine and scuffed, in what is called a superposition of states. It is only when we break open the box and learn the condition of the SAK that the superposition is lost, and the SAK becomes one or the other (pristine or scuffed).
