This Japanese super blue steel is fascinating to me. It seems that I discovered it a bit late, since I caught the the tail end of the last dealer who has the Stretch in stock in super blue. I missed the Delica and Dragonfly in super blue, which would have been my two first choices. Oh well, at least next year will see HAP40 sprint runs of all the FRN models I like so much. A couple weeks ago, I saw that a dealer still had some Manbug stock in super blue, and about 10 minutes after I ordered one, this numbered one came up for like 10 bucks more, and I haven’t seen a numbered one since. I saw my sister looking at these on eBay, so I will probably put the numbered one in my collection, give her the other one, and keep the cheaper VG-10 version I have as a user. It would have been perfect for my other sister the paramedic but I got her some Leatherman Raptor scissors for Christmas this year, so I’m keeping the black Manbug!
This is laminated steel, so you can see the lamination line in most of the photos below.
