Thanks. I don't have one of those, but based on photographs I'd say the finish falls aesthetically between satin and bead blasted. Not quite as 'pretty' as a nice satin blade, a utilitarian finish without the coarse texture of bead blasting and lacking the wannabe overtones associated with coatings.The Chris Reeve Sebenza is a good example of a stonewashed blade. Another name for it would be ceramic tumbled.
Not true....for example, check out Victorinox or Wenger swiss army knives.Mirror/high polish not an option since that almost always requires hand work to achieve.
I'll take satin or mirror-finish all the time. As for coated, well....pfffffffffft. That's the sign of a lazy knifemaker as far as I'm concerned.
