Me too! Got my CC one coming in! Lori said they are a nice royal blue color, not so much purple. Guess we'll see in a few days, woot!

It sure seems a natural pairing and one destined for all time lists. Congratulations to all those who are fortunate enough to get to own and carry one. In practical terms knives don't really get better than this.

I hope they are around for a long time. My luck holds. My dryer died yesterday so that comes before any knives no matter how wonderful they may be. :)

That's why God made clothesline, Brother. ;) :p Who needs a dryer when you've got S110V to play with? :D :D

Half black and half dark green RIT dye, the company calls that mix "titanium" coincidentally enough!
Wow, what a sweet looking knife.
On my radar: 110V Military, Police 4 and some sweet Rex 45 Military action.

Newest Spydies: S90v Ti Military, Pacific Salt and a special Kiwi.

Scales do look a little translucent on NGK :o

Here is NGK's pic of the S110V PM2, courtesy of NGK of course.

Image

If the scales are translucent, light would specifically be shining more brightly through the only open/milled section of the SS liner on the presentation (non-clip) side - a small, mostly rectangular area between the rearmost scale screw and the lanyard hole (by the 3 clip screw holes). The rest of the liner on that side is essentially one piece save for the thin line for the lockbar cutout... If anything, that rear section of the knife in NGK's pic is darker. The bright corners/sides of the scales are just very well lit.

I don't know, maybe it's the physicist in me that's having issue with this potential translucency. :o :rolleyes: :)

Isn't it? ;) :D Still wondering if I should have let that one go! I know it went to a very good home though. :)

When I first saw it, it looked like a purple, but now that I look at it again, it does look like translucent dark blue.

Either way, it looks nice.

It appears I did too. The color does look really great! It should look good with my Orange and Brown Para's :D. I hope others get to snag one quickly.

More photos at howes. There is consistently a variation in color on the handle in each photo I have seen of this knife. Darker and lighter spots.

Now the Howes pics look like they're a bit translucent. :p

I agree with LC that the dye jobs look a bit uneven from knife to knife. Hate to say it, but I'm not loving what I see but I'll decide better on either Saturday or Monday at the latest (I already have a tracking number, yay!)
