Whoa. A boosted curve in Photoshop didn't reveal any coloration. I'm guessing black.

Another shot from the listing looks like G10, could it be smooth(er)?

It does indeed look like smooth black G10!

They're late to the party ....I would be more interested in a Para3 in Elmax or CTS-XHP or a PM2 in K390.

The gray G10 Cruwear is my favorite variant out of the six PM2s I own. I feel comfortable throwing almost anything I encounter in life at that knife.

Sweet! Though I do prefer the grey g10 . Between this and the maybe coming 204 from KW, will keep me on my toes

I think it’s just a low resolution photo. I can see the peel-ply pattern on the lower portion of the handle, so I think it is just a standard black G10.

That’s a shame. While I don’t yet have a grey Cruwear PM2 to match my Cruwear Millie (SELL ME ONE), I would rather have that. Cruwear is such a great steel, something more exciting could have been done with the scales.

The appearance of standard black G-10 is disappointing, especially in a limited run special steel.

Yeah, too bad it’s basic black. Glad I have the original sprint.

I'm hoping the choice of black g10 keeps the price lower than the price for g10 in a different color. I had the cruwear pm2 sprint and I did like the grey but honestly would have prefered black. I am probably the only one lol

I bought 2 gray CW PM2s and sold them both; redemption time :)

I've been dying for more Cruwear, but not another PM2. :mad: Can't we get a Native or Para 3 or Lil Native in Cruwear? Preferably all 3! And i'll echo everyone else with the "meh" on the black. And if it is smooth G10, which it looks like, then double meh. If it was something new like a translucent grey smoke, translucent brown smoke, translucent dark green, translucent dark orange, etc, then i'd probably grab one. With so many options in production models, exclusives, and sprints, I feel like it has to be a great combo of steel and scale color to invoke a true feeding frenzy. Plus a little social media hype never hurts...right BHQ? :D

I agree, I'd love a Cruwear PM2 and the cheaper the better! This thing will go with me everywhere and will likely get dirty. If I want it pretty I'll get some micarta scales for it (that'll make it a bit less cheap, lol).

Hopefully a Manix 2 LW in cruwear's next!

How often after these show up on Ebay should I expect them to be released?

I saw a few pics of this from one of the other collector club members. He confirmed that it is black Smooth G10. I am guessing we should see these show up within a week or so.

I really really like the smooth g10 on my KC exclusive green native. This is now #1 on my purchase list.

Hmm... I do wish it was the same dark green as the Native.

That would have been really awesome!!!

Perhaps in the future, we'll get one with the Native's shade of green. If we do, and depending on the steel offered, I may have to do a blade swap to get Cruwear into the green handle.

It's a bit off topic, but anyway: IIRC there has been an official statement from Spyderco that the steel 's official name is Cru-Wear - nevertheless the etching on the blade says Cruwear. :confused:
