I figured that a number of members would comment about the V10R but instead quite a few wrote about the Sebbie
As far as surface prep before stone wash ... none. Disassembled the knife & placed the scales & pocket clip into the barrel.
These images should help give a better feel for the results.
Cost for a Sebbie or any knife with two Ti scales & a clip is $50. Cost for a one scale knife like the ZT is $25.
