Gray scales would be nice... random thought of the day
There are some I know of...Swatch 58mmOne of the Battle series 91mm (Nafels and Sempach?)Printed gray with the leaves in the design on while cellidor background. I’m sure there are more out there. And I’d like to see new ones that aren’t just printed.
Is it grey or gray?
Celidors are the richest red this side of a Ferrari. I love red, so I love Celidor SAKS. But there is more to the Celidor appeal than my color fetish and management stubbornness.John Ruskin, I think it was, said things ought to look like what they are made of. He was referring to why Gothic cathedrals made of granite, though hard and grey, had a deeper beauty than their ornamentation and massiveness. He said Gothic cathedrals were deeply authentic because they looked exactly like what they were made of: granite cut from granite and stacked well. His was a profound insight despite his other vices. [...]Regardless, the Celidor SAK reminds that the real object persists amidst the fakery, whether or not the business model can. And while DHS and DIA may or may not shortly spring aliens from outer space on us, the moon and stars are still gonna be authentic.And at the bottom of my pocket, there will still be a Celidor SAK waiting to solve tool problems in a color I love.
Sgt T- beautifully and passionately written essay to celidor there chap
I've said it before and i'll say it again: The main problem with the current cellidor scales is being hollow, as opposed to the older solid ones. Much more resistant for normal use, if you don't use alcohol or any chemicals that is...I just hate the cheap hollow feel of the current cellidor scales. I cringe every time i tap on my cellidor SAK's and get that cheap hollow sound. When i have the time, i'm even thinking on taking out the scales on some of my favorite cellidor users and fill them up with epoxy to see if the feel and resistance improves...
Let's use graey from now on.
What's everyone's favorite translucent scale color?I'm thinking blue. The red and silver look nice but almost seem like riffs on the other versions of the same color. Blue seems to stand out on it's own.
Even tho there's an Alox SAK in my pocket every day, I still carry an Explorer or Yeoman with me in my EDC bag of stuff, and sometimes for an evening out a Compact is just right.
