What I like most about paper Micarta is the sharpness in detail of the patterns that Busse machines into their handles vs. other handle materials...even G10 is not quite as well defined...it is like the difference between HDTV & rabbit ears...;)

some folks feel it is more "fragile" than other handle materials but I haven't found a noticeable difference...then again I'm not NOS :eek:.........so YMMV :)
I was curious about the fascination with black paper because I only have one ASH1 with that material and the smoothness of it feels plasticy to me and reminds me too much of some cheap plastic, even though I know it's not. It is a very deep black color though...

I love my black paper micarta. Having said that I am also starting to take a shine to ivory G10 as well...

You forgot another great one :eek:
Sandstorm G10



That's nice, I had a Sledgehammer like that once but I prefer Jungle Storm with the dark gray layer in it a little better.
These are two different batches of Sandstorm G10.

This looks pretty cool, it said Ghost g10, but I thought it was supposed to be a little lighter. Could just be the lighting.

I love the tigerhide on my HG-55 LE. Also pretty fond of red/black g10. Snakeskin is awesome but I haven't had the pleasure to own any. I'm thinking of the current offerings green canvas is going to be awesome though, that's what I ordered on my UGLE

AZTimT- What beautiful collection! I especially like the one in the center of the 4th picture with a fusion handle & smooth bruiser G-10 labeled "PROTOTYPE"
