    An interesting project for those who wanted red scales would be to dye the natural scales red.

    Can you actually dye micarta??

    Looks like this poll is well over in fact, nothing can come near to the leader. So be it.

    Yup - looking like the big winner is Natural Canvas. Should be a great-looking knife with that cover. :thumbsup: I will be very happy if I can get ahold of one! :)

    If they do, however, offer Natural Canvas and...the current runner-up as a second color choice...well then Imightjusthavetogowiththered. :D

    I went with the Olive Drab but it looks like the Natural is going to be the winner. At any rate any one of them will work for me just fine, I can't wait to get my hands on one.

    Thanks to all who make this possible.

    For me, if there was a color choice, I would take either the red or the green canvas over the natural. But I seriously doubt that would happen. I'll be perfectly happy with the natural in any case.

    I second that! I'd have a tough time choosing between Natural Canvas & Red Linen, so getting one of each would solve that if possible.

    As it stands though, I'm cool with Natural winning so far, and likely decidedly so. I was afraid we'd get a winner with only 21% of the vote - but fortunately it appears that we'll have a clear champion.

    Yup, with RIT garment dye. Pretty easy and there's threads about it all over BFC. Granted, I don't know what type of finish, if any, GEC puts on their micarta, but you would need to strip that first (if it's there). Sorry to get off-topic guys.

    Time to close the poll and get the ball rolling? It's been two weeks and we have a clear winner.

    It would have a lock symbol if it was closed. The pin is the sticky symbol, the graph is the poll symbol. I'm still getting used to this new forum software myself.
    I'm sure Charlie will get to it shortly.

    Gary, I think the poll is closed but the thread is still open. I never voted but the option was always there until yesterday. It's gone now so I think the poll itself is closed.
