Tigerstripe never goes out of style in my opinion

Warhammer 40000 is- basically- Lord Of The Rings on a cocktail of every drug known to man and genuine lunar dust, stuck in a blender with Alien, Mechwarrior, Dune, Starship Troopers, Fahrenheit 451 and Star Wars, bathed in blood, turned up to eleventy billion, set on fire, and catapulted off into space screaming "WAAAGH!" and waving a chainsaw sword- without the happy ending.

I was thinking the digi camo has gotten old and camo would be on the discontinued list this year ... however, I like your idea better with it being replaced with a different camo pattern. Which one??? OMG ... that is impossible to pick!!! Everyone has one they like better ... I like vias but it would have to be scaled down for something as small as a knife. I'm fine with the camo you suggested.

I'll go the opposite direction and ask for the current Digital Camo on some of the other models. I would love a DLC Native with Camo G10. Maybe this would be a good exclusive series for someone to do in DLC Cruwear! Native, Manix XL, and Chief to start!

The current army pattern would be nice. Tiger stripe is cool also. Mossy Oak is always welcome.

Snow camo would be fun!
Tis the season, and people have been begging for more white
Digital snow camo?!?!? For me this would be awesome! PM2, Para3, Native 5, Manix2 maybe..Digital snow camo and stonewashed blade? I'll buy 2! :D

This would be awesome. DLC and/or Satin with Digital Snow Camo! Especially in model that hasn't had any camo prior like the Native, Manix XL, Manix, Chief, Shaman, etc. Again, I'll vote for Cruwear or 4V to go along with the camo theme.

I am against the idea of a Camo pattern that requires paying a royalty. I am tired of paying big up charges for mossy oak and real tree.

I want the current Camo in other colors. A snow camp or blue camo would be cool.

Why, again, are we trying to make our Spydies harder to find when they fall on this or that type of ground?

That thought occurred to me as well.

For myself, as a civilian who's never served in the armed forces, I'd feel a bit self-conscious about carrying a camo-handled knife.

I am an avid outdoorsman and I just like camo. Also, I try not to drop my knives. ;)

Not a snipe. Thanks to Mark Twain, I’m just predisposed to look for amusing ironies. :rolleyes:
