A while back I decided to pick up an Orca to see what they were all about, and ended up paying for the purple Mokuti version.
Liked everything about the knife but the inconsistent mokuti coloring, which was pale, winey, and a little yellowish, because of how the mokuti was done.
Moreover the liners were barely anodized at all:
Long story short, I wasn't unhappy enough to go through a returns process, and held onto the knife, which had an undeniable luxe feel to it. Reate makes 'em well. It joined the rotation.
Cut to today: I decided screw it, I'm reanodizing it.
I took it apart and cleaned it all up, and decided to keep the anodization on the clip as is, but everything else was going to go electric blurple.
Incidentally? @erickong will find this interesting: like the Lynx, this is an unkeyed pivot that was initially held in place with a glob of threadlocker:
Because it's adjustable from both sides, unlike the Lynx, it's not...
