I'm naturally partial to earth tones so I think it's quite a handsome color combination, WAY better than black blades. I don't need to blend in at night any more than I need to find my knife in a sandbox, so all things being equal I'll take color over the absence thereof any day! More of this, please!
Edit: I should say that black does work when it's in contrast to a bright handle, like green or orange. But yeah, I'm definitely down for more blade colors!
