- RSD Scales and Screws required for 940 and 943
Made out of grade 5 titanium, knife not included. Please allow 3-5 business days to process.
As usual fit and finish are dead on and make the knife stronger, plus look better. Shipping is fast.
This design adds another level of beauty to one of the most compelling knives of all time but, more importantly, it adds strength. The threaded barrels at the four corners of the spacer bind the scales to each other to support lateral/prying pressures at the pivot. I have a Rock Scale spacer on my Bugout, too. Light, strong, and beautiful. You'll be putting this backspacer on all of your 940s and wishing RSD made one for the rest of your knives. I never had much interest in the Para 3 but I might buy one just to trick it out with RSD bits.
After just 1 week the coloring is scuffed and wearing off. I expected it to wear over time... months, years. A week is surprising. I have every other piece of hardware on this knife also anodized blue Ti from other suppliers and am not having this issue with them.
This review form mentions adding pics, but does not have an option for me to do so.
I really like it, but just one little thing I wish it could be a deeper blue. That's not a deal breaker. It's great and looks good on my knife.
Their attention to detail is superb, however, the screws were great minus one of them. One of the screws broke in half during instillation with no torque. Now I need to get it drilled out.
