Colored Leopards haven't been produced for a while, but there are still some out there in the hands of dealers. The Leopard is still one of my favorite Benchmades. They still make the Leopard Cub, but in black only. My favorite variant is the clear anodized version, but I guess their main market is people who do not already own more than enough black knives.
My girlfriend was attempting to collect all of the Cub colors a few years back, but could never get the red or green. My understanding was that all of the colors (not black or grey) were produced for the Edge Company, but the number of other dealers who managed to get them leaves me curious. These may have been secondhand, direct-ordered from Benchmade, or excess Edge Company stock, I don't know. Full sized-Leopards were also done in colors, as were mini-Spikes, but I never saw any other colored Benchmades except autos. I don't know how many were made, but it is definitely a small number compared to the black models. They seemed to be surprisingly slow sellers.
When you say clear, do you mean grey or bare metal? I've heard the grey finish called "clear," but also seen an Auto-Spike in a "clear" finish that was like bare satin aluminum.
