My guess is that you'll easily be able to trade around for a handle you may like. The only color I was hoping to avoid was purple. But there were a lot of people in the original thread that were hoping for purple. So if I got one, I knew I would be able to trade around.The unknown can be scary. I think we will see a lot of unique one of a kind super cool F16’s. This is the most exciting gamble I’ve taken in my Busse knife buying career. I hope it pays off!!
