Maybe this a bad time, but what do you guys think of a green Micarta Cruwear Shaman, or maybe a green Micarta with another exotic steel? I could argue for a larger quantity.

What say you?

Since I just got green micarta for my Manix, I went with 2 I'm yet to try...blue denim and K390
Currently have 18 :spyder:'s in 11 different steels. Constantly adding and purging!

Blue denim for sure, but I think I'd pick k390 over Cruwear, given the choice.

Voted blue denim Micarta (not too light, but rather dark colored) and "other".

As I´ve said already in other threads: I am totally fine "even" with the standard S30V (or would even prefer it over especially harder to sharpen steels), but I just love Micarta scales!

A denim Micarta, S30V.... and backlock Shaman would be an instant buy for me! ;) (Honestly, and not intending to derail this thread, I think the Shaman is such a great model especially ergonomicwise, that there would be a market for both a comp lock and a backlock version,for those are the two most preferred lock types it seems)

What say you?
I did not vote as "Green Micarta" is nowhere near specific enough. Will it be paper, linen, canvas, or burlap micarta? Will it be smooth polished or rough finished? Assuming my pre-order fails to ship, I would choose Cru-wear, rough green micarta just like current Sprint other than color. It is second to the current Sprint in color, for me.

I agree Green is vague. Maybe Sal could comment on the shade he had in mind. I assumed OD when I read it, but who knows.

I voted denim/K390, but I love the BLUCARTA name and would have no trouble supporting that

Green 4V, but I wouldn’t say no to blue K390.

Green K390 and gray Cruwear, or reverse, and I just may have to get both.

I voted blue denim k390 because I don't have any blue micarta, and I think k390 would be popular on a shaman. But I'm in the "all of the above" camp, really. Green, blue, natural, any shade works for me. And k390, 4v (or 3v), and another cruwear run would all be great.

Edit: As others said after me, add rex45 to this list! That'd be nice with a burgundy micarta. Also, textured/canvas micarta, please! And don't stop with the Shaman: the Manix 2 is begging for any of these combos, too!

Of that list I voted green/4V because I like the combo but I'd also be interested in denim micarta (would really be ecstatic if it were legit denim and not just denim/blue colored) and just about any tough steel.

Green micarta + Cru-Wear or 4V for me, as well as a stonewashed blade to go with the tough folder theme.
