Surprised at how unpopular black is. It's my go to, with green being an occasional carry.

Orange for a lot of things, blue for knives, so I voted orange and blue. I'd especially love denim blues, or a return of the Stretch blue.

Blue and grey are my favorites. Really love the grey on the Maxamet Native 5.

How about a knife in Vantablack. If not familiar with it a quick google will show you some cool stuff. Not sure if it would work for this application but would be kinda cool as a collectors piece.

BTW I voted blue in poll. I do like a variety of colors. I have a purple Endura but really like the Blurple color. Orange is nice for hiking camping knives.

I voted blue and green. From old ZDP Stretch blue to smurf Delica blue, I like them all. BRG to Delica green, all good. The toxic green is practical for finding the knife on a pier, but a bit loud otherwise.

You can choose two colors.

My Native 5 S110V looks just perfect, so that's my choice. Second is black. Third is a nice visible yellow... say, how about goldenrod? ;)
- best wishes, Jazz.

I think that goldenrod looks good. I like most colors.

I actively avoid black. I have black knives but I wish they weren't. It isn't enough to get me to pass on a knife I want but it is a factor in my decisions. I would rather carry a pink knife than a black one. :eek:

Not too sure on goldenrod Darby, but I'd rather a pink knife over a black one any day! ;)

The black handle and the two holes are the reason I don't own a Junction. :eek:

If my wife leaves her pink Native5LW laying around I'll throw it in my pocket for a day. It just means I like boobs. Seriously though, my mother is and my grandmother was a breast cancer survivor. I have kind of embraced the pink thing. :) I am very grateful that Spyderco makes pink knives and donates proceeds from them.

I think part of my aversion to black is that I do not have a tactical bone in my body. That is what I see when I see black knives. I am much more of a country boy so camo on the other hand makes me happy. Not in the Military sense but rather because I have been a hunter and outdoorsman all my life. I need a zome Delica. They look camo.

Well its safe to say yellow is slowing the Salt line sales : ) I'm a merchant mariner and I still haven't bought one yet. I'd like to though :)

Desaturated colors are nice, such as the foliage green models and original zdp allotment that evil d posted, and the bluegreen micro dyad was a great bluegreen that didnt get its 15 minutes. Too many 'obvious' colors in the line up imnsho, so i tend to prefer the shades of grey and black that are offered lately. But who cares right? It's like blade centering, its not funtional then to hell with it, other than for visibility issues.
