    Before and after pics stripped CS Recon


    ADVERTISEMENT
    Does anyone have before and after pics of a Cold Steel Recon 1 folder clip point? I really want to get one and then strip the blade but not sure how it is going to look.
    Thx very much.

    Cold Steel actually does a really nice stonewash under the crappy coating. Sorry most the pics suck, old pictures.



    Newer pics show a little better.

    Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes.

    Not the Clip point but it gives you some idea.

    So how does one go about stripping the black finish?
    Does it require disassembling the blade?

    Most people scape it off with another blade. Here's a thread discussing it: http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/sh...d-steel-teflon. And yes, I'd take the blade out of the frame and remove the thumbstuds. That way you can get to the whole blade and have a nice even finish.
