This thing gets insanely sharp as well. I'm popping hairs off my wife's arm with one swipe now. Almost comparable to Super Blue in the "easy to get sharp" department.
I noticed that too.Did the laminate take a patina too?
Because it looks like it did.
Two week (roughly) update...Latina is in full effect now, a dull grey color on the edge section and just above the lamination lines. Some orange rust has developed here and there on the “corners” of the grind such as the ricasso but not on the edge. After quite a bit of use the factory edge is still quite sharp and no chipping. This steel has excellent toughness and wear resistance.

I noticed in the Spyderco forum the big thread on the lamination lines.
It is really ironic that mine looks spot on as I really could care less what it looks like as long as it is heat treated properly and cuts like it is supposed to.
Can’t wait to check out the rest of them.
