Sometimes mineral oil will stain white bone, but aside from that they are fairly resistant to the elements and rigors of daily carry. As others said, they will wear and may change color over time, but are for the most part low maintenance.
Working on concrete floors I do fear dropping my knives...
If you’re like the looks of the Dom, then I’ll say you’re looking at a great option. It’s close in size to the mini Copperlock and, depending on the cover material, weighs about the same. The quality is superb, and a Sheepsfoot is extremely handy for general use. I adore mine.
My first impressions were quite negative as well, to me they just looked like poorly finished wood. After seeing all the pics posted here I’ve changed my position on them, they look really nice. It’ll be interesting to see how they age with time :thumbsup:
Looks great :thumbsup:
That’s part of fun of these kind of knives, no fear of grinding the blades and modifying them to better suit individual needs. I just wish I could do something about that ugly orange delrin :rolleyes:
Yep, very similar coloration. Pile side is matched well.
I’d love to see another run of these, I’d like to get a Micarta and/or wood covered one. The smooth bone is super nice, but I work on concrete floors and I’m scared to drop this thing!
