More Caribbeans, ANY COMBO!Evil D wrote: ↑Tue Oct 15, 2019 7:39 pmDo I also get the thicker rounded scales with this dream combo?
For the record I think it's a combo that most fixed blades should be done in so I'm on board with the Street Beat and others.
Folder wise of course I'm gonna say Caribbean and Sliverax because I want more versions of them. After that I'd probably say a Military or Chinook. The Shaman would have already been my first pick.
Add the contoured scales of the shaman micarta and this would be awesome.
Why not? Personally, I'm kind of Para 3'd out too but I think it might be nice with some Micarta scales, especially if they had a little more radius to the edges.

As would most of the flagship Seki backlocks like the Endura, Delica, Endela, Police, and Dragonfly. A new Micarta Jester in Cruwear would be fantastic as well, but I would still prefer the unbuffed finish of the Shaman's micarta to the polished finish on the vintage Micarta Jesters.
This unbuffed Micarta (any color...natural, OD Green, Denim, Burgundy, or even Black) plus CPM-Cruwear is such a winning combo. Time to maybe prune some of the production one-offs (S110V, Maxamet, ZDP-189) and replace them with this combo in the production space to meet demand. Dealers can always commission exclusives of S110V, Maxamet, and ZDP-189 if the natives get restless, but I have a feeling that won't happen for some time. Plenty of inventory for those steels out there to meet the demand.

In the fixed blade category I would love to see the Streetbeat in that steel with Micarta handle.
