    These are some awesome knives. Thanks for the pics. TheKnifeCollector, are the carbon fiber scales on your Q36 striated as well? Great knife.

    I can answer that since I got one from the same batch. Only the bolsters are striated. The carbon fiber is curved as you can see in the picture of the lock up. The surface of the Q36 carbon fiber is smooth.

    Thanks Mr.LaBella. I swear the cf look striated in the pics. I was curious since it seems like it's not an easy thing to do with cf (perhaps not possible?). At any rate, beautiful knives. Thanks for sharing the great pics.

    Kublai: Actually, the C/F scales on RNST's Q are striated-You are correct, sir!

    The striating on the scales is done at the same time as the bolsters-they are run as pairs so that I end up with perfectly matched sets of scales and bolsters. The striations are very fine, and in the case of the woven C/F, they become hard to see because of the weave of the material. Also, when I buff the handles, it tends to knock down the striations a bit as the C/F is softer than the titanium.

    But, compared to polished C/F, the wet grip is much better.

    Thank you for the clarification. I love c/f and I agree, it can be slippery. The striated c/f not only seems to be a great solution to this problem, it looks very cool too.

    The old adage is you learn something new every day still applies.

    My mistake and it did have me wondering how you got totally symmetrical CF scales on each side. So you have the bolsters and the CF scales on the CNC machine at the same time?? I think what threw me off RJ is the CF is very smooth and when I think of striations, I think of small grooves put in the metal or CF as the case may be.

    RNST: Yes, both on the machine at the same time, with the backsides already perfectly flat. After contouring, they stay together as matched sets.

    If you want to have some fun, get a jeweler's loupe and start looking at your knives with it. It's amazing what things really look like up close.

    Isn't that the bitch about knife collecting in general?

    No sooner do you have "the knife" you were looking for; as soon as its in hand you are coveting another one.

    The Variable is a great knife and I have been using mine a lot. Not going to sell or trade it now since I have marked it up and the linen micarta now has a 'blue' tinge to it from my blue jeans. Excellent carry.

    Got my 'regular' Q36 out today for some better pics.

    That's my edc right there!

    The green one I can't keep sadly...but I'm really happy with the one I carry. Knocked the Sebenza out of the right front pocket for the meantime.
