    Im very curious and hopeful about this batch of green micarta, the green handles on the FBM on the Busse site look better than any other batch to me eye.

    I have to be honest... the 4 month wait time is getting quite....tiresome. Its going to take a gladius bg to make me wait this long again.

    4 months!!!!?
    I wish when I was a poor little piglet it only took 4 months...We waited from 2 to 5 years for our stuff.
    It usually started as "2 weeks"

    Well I'm certain they will ship out the next batch of FBMs next week, I can certainly wait a little longer for my green canvas and black Mistress.

    Holy mackerel, that would explain a lot. Being totally new to micarta I had no clue. Guess I'll see when I get it, but my perception is what sold me on the green and now it looks like it will be a surprise. Still looking forward to it just the same :thumbsup:

    I get my mbb in about 4 days after ordering. Also the wait thing is going to cause problems with the wife this time. Shes like dont you dare buy another knife! Then my fbm will show up at the door. Hey honey i ordered this 4 months ago so it doesnt count lol is all i got. Maybe i should have it left at the post office so i can pick it up all sneaky like.

    The Green Canvas on mine looks a lot like the G10 from the SMOG Warden. Not nearly as green as I expected. NTTAWWT.

    Well aint I feelin' dumb now. What I thought was green micarta was dry black micarta. The good news is that I like this green micarta just fine so no ragrets. I like it a lot, cant wait to get mine.
