    I wonder about G10 vs Micarta. I have only seen one other pic posted with G10. The 80.00 upgrade may have kept G10 orders low.

    Having the regular in bruiser and the M in canvas - no way in hell I can do G10 again, Colors are cool, but feel in the hand? ... 2 different planets. I'm need to take a walk out in the woods with both and chop on some sht but I know what I'm liking atm.

    Has that maroon been oiled or is that how it came? It doesn't have that "dry" look like the other canvas i've been seeing. It actually looks kind of shiny and similar texture to this recent batch of black G10 I have on my TGA2. Looks Great!! I would love to get maroon canvas and CF on a Foresaken Mistress if it will come like that.

    That's how it came. The lighting's different in the pictures, but in real life it looks like my TG SE A2:

    Man if someone were to ask me "Based on this picture is the maroon handle G10 or canvas?" I would say G10

    I bet it has oil on it. Mine had a coat of oil from the factory. Had to wash it to get the tape to stick for the sheath making.

    Finally! Thanks man i appreciate the pic. Crazy but that midnight actually looks black. Still a kickass combo though. The swedge really showed up well in your pic to boot

    .25 stock with the coating seems about right.

    Trying that Rit dye on these green canvas for my TGMA2. Used the stovetop method with salt- Found the liquid Rit in dark green (Hobby Lobby is your friend) - so almost black haha! I scuffed them up with a coarse foam sanding block to get lots of fuzz, worked really good too. Not dry yet but seems to have taken really good. Think I'll try the beeswax buffing after I reinstall them - You get a good idea of the color looking at the backside of the canvas mic - They are more of a faded light olive color -

    And here it is all done!

    Thanks! Yeah...the lighting did make it look more black. It actually is a really nice deep midnight blue.

    Azula measured the TGA2 (full size) at .261 in front of the slabs with sage coating. Is black normally that much thicker than sage these days, or are the A2 TG-M’s thicker than the standard blade length A2 TG? Anyone have both knives and a caliper?

    Thanks!

    Not talking about very much here at all. The coating could be thicker or thinner depending on who was doing the spraying.
