Thanks a bunch guys, I think I have everything I need to get started now, except one last question. What did you guys do about the plastic pieces at the end of each side of the saya. It would scatch if you sanded them, did you just cover them with tape and sand carefully? or can you pop them off som...
hey guys, I've had my PPK for a while now and I would like a project for over my christmas break, so I think I'm going to try my hand at playing with saya colors. Never having done this before, I have a couple of specific questions and then any and all advice is welcome. First off, do I need to sand...
I believe the laws in my state (us) are no blades longer then 3 inches and no blade that opens using a spring or gravity. I think just because it can be opened with one hand quickly, though most legal ones dont take much longer to open.

the BLK does have a (saya) scabbard. It looks to me like it just has some better fittings, though having not handled either hopefully someone can comment better on the blades, though I don't know how much of a difference $30 can make in blade quality.
