So with the 757 Vicar on "discontinued clearance" I finally took the plunge and bought one. I've hesitated this long because of three reasons: 1. My BM collection is roughly 80% axis locks, 20% frame locks. Not a liner lock among them. 2. The ultra rough texture a-la BM Triage makes office EDC a bit of a pain. 3. That green outer scale is in a color I cannot stand. So with this monster being a thick Ti liner I understand it's basically a frame lock beefed up with G10 - that solves issue #1. Issues #2 and #3 I believe could be addressed with a custom outer scale. So here are my two questions to the community: 1. Does the green scale on the Vicar remove easily, or is it integrated into the larger black scale? 2. Who offers/makes custom vicar scales in a timely fashion? I'm thinking carbon fiber or twill would be nice. This would make my first liner lock BM, and first custom BM. Thanks for the input!
