Hi guys, i saw many pics of 551bk, some show blade coating is not actually very dark, but some show it really deep black, but the handle is kind of some blue when captured right next to that nice dark black. Also, the blade: disappointed with some dlc coatings, got titansepp knife, this blade coating is really nice, not dlc maybe. BM non conformist has awesome black blade too. Just as the handle. Some protech sng's pics show handles anodized with some tint, while the screws, clip and blade are excellent, too... looks like handle just isnt anodized as black as benchmade's. So, what are the actual colors of bk grip?
