    Just got this Cerakoted M4 Tigress back from Scott Solar here on the forums. I am typically not a big fan of coatings on knives but must say that I like the looks of this one very much. It was coated with Midnight purple which is smoother than most of the other coatings. Scott did a good job on this one. I love M4 but hate rust. Yeah I know about wiping it down with oil, natural patina, character, yaddy yaddy yada.... What can I say, I am a lazy ass. I am hoping that Cerakote will prevent most of the rust on my M4 Tigress. Will have to test her out and see how the coating holds up to chopping.

    Ban, to actually make money as a knifemaker you actually have to sell your knives, not keep them. :p

    AWESOME Ban! That looks excellent man. Is she for personal rotation, or is she going up for sale? If so...when (day and exact time)?!

    Thanks man. I made her with the intent of keeping it for myself because I missed the other one that I sold. There are a few that want dibbs on it but I will let you guys know if I decide to sell her.
