    My second Bushfinger arrived both are 1/8 A2 blade stock current production.

    However, there is a difference like all custom hand made knifes each has its own soul and feel to it.

    If you look you will notice the red burlatex knife has a tapered spine while the yellow burlatex does not.

    The yellow non taper weight is 5.5oz and the red taper is 4.9oz.

    To me the yellow burlatex handle has a slightly noticeable thicker feel to it which I personally prefer for wood working. Just fills the hand alittle more overall.

    EDC and hunting the the reduced weight and bulk of the tapered red burlatex is a plus in its own right.

    At the end of the day both have a awesome just slightly different feel it’s a toss up which I prefer still.

    Have a Kephart 1/8 stock A2 Navy Burlatex handle already :)

    So far all Burlap or Burlatex handles just like the durability of Micarta. That said Osage is my wood so that could happen in the future.
