    The swedge and the dark finish look badass. What type of finish is that?

    That would be the gray turd. Aka zombie finish.

    The illusive grey turd

    I grind the swedge by hand, doesn't scale up to production very well.

    Nice. Did you do this swedge by hand too? I love the swedge, it adds a subtle, yet different look to the knife along with the turd finish.

    Buffed burlap gives the antique micarta a run for its money. Definitely my go to from now on, as long as its an option!
