Nice. They should make more in that color a blank canvas.
I totally agree. I wish all the frn models had a white option.

If I wanted to dye the LC200N Pacific Salt to a deeper green, which color would you guys recommend? Haven't used RIT in years and I've only ever done black. I want something like OD green or Foliage green, because based on pictures the green they're using is a little bright for my tastes.

Maybe a quick dip in some brown or tan?

The way the grooves are machined seem to create a shimmering effect with each cover I've used. It's pretty cool.
That looks so bloody good... I'll probably try for a red/burgundy once I get mine but oh dear that modified blade looks good.

I doubt you'll be able to get a light shade like foliage green, but you may be able to dull it to an OD green with an olive or brown/taupe dye. I think your best bet will be to go for a darker green using the "dark green" dye or similar. You could also easily go blue, blue/green, or dark teal.

It is too bright for mine too but I’m otherwise very interested in this knife. If you do buy it and give the dye a try, I’d be very interested to see the results!
