CF shread and I would DEFINITELY also get it if it was ivory G10. I think this is shaping up to be one heck of a knife.

Thank you very much for bringing attention to this idea and putting in the time and effort it is taking to get this nailed down... And as Foofie succinctly put it, "thanks for herding cats". There may be no pleasing everyone, but you're doing a great job.

Thanks for that.

I am doing my best, but this is taking up a fair amount of my head-space and time, much more than I expected. There definitely is no pleasing everyone, but the displeased make the most noise, and that is all I am getting at the moment, so your compliment means more than you realise.

Everyone just needs to stay realistic here.

not a big cf fan. But I know people really like it, doing both if possible would probably reach the most people.

Are you trying to make my buy two? Because that's how you make me buy two.

This makes me want to repeat what I already said in another thread:
I personally am not particularly interested in this model and won't get one, but still I really think you're doing a great job and are showing a lot of commitment!

I wish you and all others that a supernice UKPK will be the reward! :)

Voted for either.

Also, you’re doing great Superfool. I appreciate all the time you’ve spent on this.

Congratulations on attaining the coveted ‘Spyderco Troublemaker’ status in such a short span of time, too. :D :)

Ditto.
I am getting 2, one for me and one for my friend.
This is how you make me buy 4.

Thanks a lot Wartstein. Everyone is nice here and I am glad everyone is so accepting of a Limey turning up and starting trouble. On and around the 4th of July no less.

I feel that is somehow significant... :D

I did not vote, as there's no option for "none of the above" and, while I strongly prefer the Ivory G-10 option (assuming it's polished and not peel-ply) and would just as strongly inclined not to purchase a knife using "shred CF" as I find it consummately ugly, I would be willing to purchased the knife if the scales were matte CF along the lines of that used on the Kiwi and Kopa or any color (aside from that gross looking jade green used on the Leafstorm) of G-10 either polished or corrugated like that on the PPT and Zulu.

Eh... I'd pick none of the above.

These options don't do it for me, I'll sit this one out.

G10 ivory and i wouldn't get it if it was CF.

The Damasteel already has a busy pattern, why anybody would want the handle to be busy as well (shred CF) beats me.

I feel this way too. With that being said, I think that I could always change the handle for something else, and put the shred on my blue 110v.

I'd prefer CF, but the handle is not very important to me, and the ivory G-10 would be fine. If I don't like it, it's within my skill set to swap out the G-10 scales, even if they're pinned. I also expect that the G-10 will come in cheaper than the CF, which is another advantage.

Ivory G10 heavily in the lead here. Another day left though.

In other news... the penultimate, and maybe even final poll for this knife is here.

Please go and vote:

viewtopic.php?f=2&t=87096

Please read the guide. You get 3 choices in the hope that this spreads the votes out. No backsies.

Remember this is a small knife, so bear that in mind when deciding.

Choose wisely.

I voted cf shred, but would buy if it were ivory g10. I figure it really should have a pretty handle too. But I won’t pass on g10 either. It’ll come down to if I’m able to score one at all.
