    I'm interested in this knife but I don't care for the blue back spacer. Can it be taken out and look and work fine without it? I really wish they would have just left it black. The blue back spacer makes the knife look cheap to me.

    This trend has kept me from buying a bunch of knives now. For instance, I'd have bought a full-sized Domin had it not been for the orange back spacer. The same goes for the Bestech Texel. Trying to find a friend to swap parts or setting up a dye run for just the spacer is more work than I'm going to do. I understand that some people like a radical color accent but please, make it optional. There are different ways to do that. For instance, include a second spacer that matches the scales in case someone wants to swap or just have it match from the factory and offer the colored parts as separate items.

    I agree. I would have bought the vanguard gemini in a heartbeat if it wasn't for that funky back spacer.
