    Wouldn't really be the same knife but it would probably turn out to be very cool.:thumbsup:

    This with s30v would be one of the greatest flippers ever made, if only Benchmade would do it...

    They seem set of using cheaper materials for recent knives to bring up their profit margins I would guess.

    Why would S30v steel make it the greatest flipper ever?

    I actually like the 62 for what it is. Obviously its not the flipper that my 42 or 51 are, but I think it's a nice compliment to the collection if you get what I mean.

    I would like to spice it up a bit. You cannot anodize the handles, but what about the hardware? Like the screws and such? feel like a blue purple highlight may give it a cool look (if its possible).

    Just a guess, but won't the screws and latch be stainless steel as well? Why would they make them out of Titanium...

    But you can polish up the hardware and oil blue them. I'm not sure if benchmade heat treats their hardware though

    You can do it yourself. It's pretty easy to do

    Easy to heat treat in general, or easy to achieve the desired colors? I would rather pay money for someone to do it right and get a nice shade of blues, rather than make my knife look like shit..
