One of a kind Benchmade (pics)

My Presidio has been around the horn a time or 2 and was starting to show a little wear from it. I decided to give it a new life yesterday by bead blasting the scales and blade and throwing a sick edge on it.

Before:
The Cutting Edge


And now:
The Cutting Edge

Looks great. An option for you is to cold blue the fasteners. I've done a fair amount of backyard pimpin' with great results. The contrast is exceptional. I'm going to HF tomorrow

Do you mean cold blue the 2 press fit collars that are in the scale? I left all of the screws black.

Yes the clip screws are black. I actually took the black studs off and put them on my Bedlam. I think the ones on it now are stainless. I guess I need to change those back now.
