    I made scales for the original Blue 535, then came the 535GRY. I bought one and made a set of brown canvas micarta scales for it. Both were nice, but just something was off. A firend wanted the brown 535 I made, but didnt like the grey blade and clip. I swapped them around at his suggestion. Glad I did! Made my Blue 535 a Blue/Grey off-spring. Really pops like this. The grey accents the greyish color from the shred CF (lighting here doesnt show it too well).

    Thanks!! Posted a few more previous pics in former configurations. I really like the CF/Grey/Blue combo. My buddy is floored with his Brown/Silver/Yellow accents.

    Those are beautiful combinations! I love my blue bugout but maybe a custom job like that is in order!

    Gorgeous. That's exactly what I've been wanting to do with the blue and grey.

    I didn't make them for sale. A friend of mine really wanted the Brown canvas, yellow pinstripes, with the silver blade. I just swapped it all around and found myself liking the Black/Blue/Grey blade combo more. I sold him the brown version because he really appreciates the custom/handmade craftsmanship. It was a win/win.
