    Perfectly! I have carried them a pretty good amount. It would take a deep scratch to show through.
    Best part is you can always redye if need be down the road.
    Good luck with your venture and post pics when done !

    I like the blue scales because I often put my knives down in the forest, but the black dye job looks really good!

    I think I'm going to buy a Bugout in a few days, depending on how it feels in-hand... this really has to stop.

    I'm sure its had to choose, but I'm trying to decide which to get and dye, as I'm not too keen on the blue or ranger green, but which one would you recommend?

    Cajun ingenuity at it's finest! Got a blue one on the way & I think I'll be trying for a aqua blue, call it Ocean Rougarou.
