    So glad I was able to order within 5 minutes.

    I wonder how many they planned in advance: 100? 200? 1,000?

    I think it was closer to the green when I started. Seems to be a good match to the shadow and it looks good when it darkens up like it has. Thanks for comparison pic!

    I was thinking the same, I've seen nothing anywhere suggesting last call. On either nukes or the standard knife.

    Don't know about about the total orders for all knives sold, but does give me an idea how many of these (Forsaken Steel Hearts) have been sold, and it is Substantial;)

    Wow, really?!? 65,000 in 2 or 3 years? If I wasn't tired ( and lazy... don't forget the lazy...) I would take the number of models since the renumbering started and divide that into 65,000 just for a ballpark value on the number of each model that has been made, and then think about if that number makes sense.

    Fir canvas you cant beat the black or green canvas, the maroon comes out pretty brown most of the time. Same with the red g10 for some odd reason.

    1 of each comped wearing green g10. Down the line I can change handle colors if the mood hits. Kinda liked the shadow cam but as long as they keep puttin out comp finishes without too much of a price jump thats my go to :thumbsup:.

    I have noticed the last couple red-black G10 I have had looking more like black and maroon canvas. The older black-red G10 was dark black and the red was dead on to airborne maroon.

    I find myself at times wishing for the old two color G10 on some knives. At one time it seemed that the black was listed first ie. Black-tan and the main color in the G10 was black with less of the tan showing.
    I may well be wrong on this and it is just the way some of the handles are machined.

    I much prefer the solid colors at this point! Nothing looks classier than the Black G10 IMO! Good ole Canvas is hard to beat for texture, I really like (and Prefer) the Black Canvas and Maroon! The Green Canvas will also turn Brown over time;)
    Congrats to all who scored in whatever Color combo:thumbsup: Edited: Regardless they are now "GONE"

    My order number was right at 1,000 after LadyEarth's. So, I'd say it's safe to say over a thousand were ordered.

    Just about everything I'm getting nowadays is maroon micarta. Prefer it over all. Black second. Haven't tried green, but have a few tan.
