I bought a Techno 2 a couple of weeks ago and this little knife has been in my pocket every day since. I mostly carry it clipped in my back pocket and it rides there unnoticed. It has excellent lockup with a very satisfying sound. I'm thinking about getting a little work done on the scales some texturing or anodizing. I saw a picture of this 1st gen Techno with a hammered finish and quite like the look. I have attached a picture. Does anybody know of persons who do this kind of custom scale work or anodizing? Better yet, if you have some pictures of your own customized Techno 2's please post them!
