    Here's a better pic that shows the level of buffed..ness.
    Unbuffed is very fuzzy like raw canvas.

    A couple more shots of the UFK with ghost scales, one with a little bit of sun hitting it, how the material then shows to the eye:

    Here’s buffed black linen, unbuffed black linen, and an extra set of TeroTuf scales. (Sorry, I don’t have a HDFK in buffed black canvas).

    Thanks Justin.

    What are your thoughts on Buffed black linen vs TeroTuf?

    There's something really wrong with that bottom knife. No really, look at it. Is that transparent aluminum? What kind of edge performance do you get out of it, and how much does Nathan charge for it?

    To be honest I haven’t installed the Terotuf scales yet as I really find the unbuffed linen to have plenty of grip. (Maybe that changes when wet, not quite sure?)

    Without putting them on the knife I would say Terotuf has a little more grip than Unbuffed linen and Buffed Linen has a eligant look while feeling cooler to the touch and smoother in the hand.

    All that said, my absolute favourite is unbuffed burlap for all purposes!!! (Grip, feel, and looks)

    It’s a ghost blade!!! I was going to ask for a set of the new ghost scales for it but didn’t “see” the point and figured I would never find it once I set it down. o_O

    It’s always nice to get home after a trip.
    Even better when you come home to a surprise like that!
    Those CC’s are both beautiful and dangerous looking.

    Box said “Fragile”. Checked everything multiple times to see if Jo slipped anything else besides the knife and the mug into it. Nope. No idea what that was about... :D

    Damnit why didn't I think to order a mug and have it sent with my FK2?
    But very nice package there! Happy days :)
