    You weren't kidding when you had mentioned that you were experimenting with a few new G10 arrangements pending Nathan's approval. Well done JoJo :thumbsup:

    Glad you like them Mat! G10 can only be put on the smaller blades, but I found some colored micarta that will hopefully work out. Still waiting to hear when I'll get it. :)

    Great too see you up, scooting and generally NinJo'ing around :)

    You already know that fancy (edgecut micarta ;) ) handles are my jam, but I'm sure that you will sell oodles of these new arrangements because you are committed to making oodles & oodles of UFKs aka FK2s :D

    Those look awesome! I wish I liked G10 more because of how cool it looks, but I prefer the micartas. Excited to see the new colors you have coming!

    G10, would be the best option for not absorbing blood etc. right?

    For what it's worth, the OD Micarta scales on my HDFK and EDC got very bloody recently...cleaned right up with dish soap, no staining whatsoever. Linen Micarta absorbs a LOT less than people think (pretty much nothing beyond the surface);)

    Edit- An old thread with some good info:

    One (not so great) thing about g10 is the weight. Have you guys ever considered machining out pockets on the underside of the scales until they match the weight of the micarta variants?
    I realize this would add considerable extra time to machining the scales, maybe I just answered my own question! :D

    Jo

    Are the any other pics of the ghost/black G10? You indicated a couple pages back that you may have better ones coming.

    Thanks!!!

    I’ll try to get Nathan to take pictures tomorrow. The new machine has been pushed back so we might be able to fit in the photos.

    I am not a big fan of G10 due to the weight but these ghost/black are badass and I think I need an extra set for the UFK.

    Are the UF's been offered with the Ghost black G10, I wouldn't mind an extra set of scales for it. I didn't notice it at the time I ordered it.

    Is it possible to add an extra set of Ghost black scales to a pre order if it didn't cause to much hassle.

    I’m sorry that I have caused confusion.
    UFK refers to Utility Field Knife/Field Knife 2.0 NOT Utility Fighter or UF.

    It had been mentioned that if we called the new FK2 a UFK that it would get confused with the UF.

    I do not believe that the ghost/black G10 is being offered for the Utility Fighter pre order.
