Titanium Handles Sanding ? Why not !

I always believe in personalizing your own tools. I also love how titanium can turn sweet under the fingers. So here I am on this afternoon testing different sandpapers on handles.
Eventually I have found that 800 grid is more than enough to make the frame and edges standing out. This is what I was looking for, this feel of old denim.
Of course I can always go back to it and by using scotchbrit refining the finish but I wanted something rough.
The Spydiechef was the first to be sanded. The idea is to keep always the same direction.

On the Spyderco Tuff the effect can be more dramatic for a much more steampunk look.

I’m quite happy with final results.
So let’s try that on the Falcon !
