    obviously they changed the red g10... not as brown as it was for awhile now. Damn, looks pretty good too :oops:

    It's red/black g10 with muddy blade. I keep trying to adjust the filters but the pics are showing the muddy looking more bronze than it is. In person it is really beautiful.

    I've owned several TGLB's. These feel much more substantial in hand. Choking back it feels like it would chop very

    Holy cow- I thought it was bronze! a funky shade of bronze but muddy never entered my brain -.... you are right, hard to catch it on film. I looked at the first 2 pics - that second especially- THAT is bronze - these last ones, OK, I see muddy for sure

    It's definitely "brown". I can't get my camera to catch the color at all.

    I also wanted to say, mine came razor sharp (all my other Busse Knives came relatively dull) with a MUCH thinner grind behind the edge. Huge improvement over the the originals. The TGLB's I owned had very thick shoulders and obtuse edge geometry.

    I really like the way that one came out. Whenever I've gotten red/black G10, it's been almost all black with just a little red.

    If that's the new red/black G10... I'll be ordering more things in red/black G10 from now on.

    Right on! All the red/blk I've seen you really had to look hard to see a very dark red to it- This is RED! I think his flash is lighting up the red too but I agree, they generally look mostly black, a lot like the blk/grn comes out not looking very green at all. I don't know myself obviously but I guess I've been under the impression the G10 doesn't change color over time like I've noticed my micarta does darken with time and handling.

    So far all the handle colors, both micarta and g10 looks excellent, and imho, better than ever. This red/black g10 is awesome, as are the black and green micartas. Im pleased that my black red g10 cf SK will look that much better.

    yeah noticing that aswell. probably used up all their older stock and the new batches are more true to color/name . Black micarta for example is coming out the shop black instead of the old school greenish tint only black when completely wet style.
