    Congrats to all who are lucky enough to score such a beautiful blade. :thumbsup:

    I'm going to pass on this one; it's just too rich for my blood.

    I'm set on a comp finish model. I want micarta. I want it hand smoothed but I can't decide what color. I've seen Black and Tan when they are hand smoothed but never green.

    Does anyone have any photos of hand smoothed green micarta?

    Gotta set my timer for the nuke... I can't miss this one!!!

    As for handles... I don't have anything in maroon micarta yet. Maybe this is the time to try it.

    probably because with busse, the g10 option always cost extra. if you want hand smoothed g10 on this that's going to cost you $150. That and micarta on bare just looks right.

    Hate to hear that bro...:(

    but they got a cure for that now...

    Just go to your doctor, get a shot of penicillin, and BOOM you're back in the game!

    The top two have darkened from handling (skin oil, dirt?), the bottom two have been handled and then washed so that is more what they look like when new.
