    Absolutely love this knife. SO many ways to deploy the blade, and the button lock makes it a fidgeter! BUT... even before I received it I knew it would be my first Rit dye effort. I was torn between blue and red. Here’s the result, which I’m very pleased with. Sapphire Blue synthetic dye with about a 8-10 minute dunk. Also, the knife was simple to dismantle and reassemble. Just watch out with the spring in the button lock!

    And just after reassembly:

    Great job! That looks good.

    I know this design is pretty polarizing and for me I wish a couple of things were different for me to get one. I appreciate that they are willing to make stuff like this though.

    Hopefully they will keep the opening methods and lock and change the design for other models.

    I can't find one anywhere. This looks pretty dope. I wanted to grab one and dye it red.

    Just a headsup on KC
    They will list discontinued items as "delayed by manufacturer" and your order will hang in limbo forever. I had this happen to me on a WE604 a long time ago...that knife never came into stock.

    I love KC as a company, but that's one thing which is a tad annoying. I would look elsewhere as well as an alternative to KC.

    Of course, I really hope it will go back into stock...but hope for the best plan for the worse.
