    There we go! :thumbsup:

    I'm thinking orange wouldn't look too shabby either.

    It’s perfect. The FK is an excellent knife. The UFK takes it just a bit further and is, quite simply, a classic. Looking forward to Friday.

    I like ghost G10 with blue GITD or standard green GITD liners.

    The Ghost black G10 is black with the translucent-y material over it. It comes that way. They do also have ghost blue and ghost red. I wanted to see how folks liked the ghost black before committing to more. I might have to get some ghost blue...

    @Jo the Machinist That ghost material really fooled me at first, but now I think it is super stuff. I think trying blue to see what it looks like makes alot of sense.

    I haven't seen it in person Tom. I figure it is like the black, the samples on the web page look like they follow the same pattern, but I couldn't visualize the final result until I had it cut out...

    If I could, a question for those of you who’ve had the opportunity to compare the burlap with the buffed micarta in hand-which do you prefer, if you have a preference for one over the other, and why? I thought I recall seeing where Nathan said he liked the burlap but I don’t think he said why. Apologies if this is the wrong thread for that.

    I think Nathan said he preferred the burlap over the G10. As far as comparing buffed micarta and burlap, I would go with the burlap. They both feel good, but I think the burlap looks better. Additionally, the ridges on the scales of my prototype UFK are much deeper and provide a better grip. Of course if grip were your main concern, then you would be better off with the the unbuffed variaty, and the burlap comes out on top again.

    Bla bla, everyone is so enamoured by the new (U)FK(2) in shiny colors. Don’t forget to give your old (t)rusty family some love! ;)

    ^^^That's called "cognitive dissonance". It only works for a little while. Sounds like you snapped out of it pretty quickly :D

    That is a sweet way to roll.

    Can I ask what brand the straps on the sheath are? Thanks!
