I appreciate the classy look of my One-Eyed Jack’s white G10.

^Polished G-10 in white is cool. Regular peel-ply G-10 in white is not something I'd want. I think Cruwear grey is as light as I'd like for peel-ply G-10. White FRN...hmm...you know what? Maybe.

Yes, polished white G10 is cool. It looks great and has a nice grain to it.

Hi Larry,

We're testing the blade shape. The color just to make it different. I think the blade shape thing is more of an "eye" thing than a "function" thing. Maybe we'll learn something.

Well Sal, I'd say it's a bit of both. Ever since the Stretch first came out there have been some who did not like the Hunter style blade shape, so yes, an eye thing. Still, from the picture in Reveal #3, I'd say the straight spine provides a more acute tip, which may appeal to some. And, despite having been happy with the original blade shape for nearly 15 years, I am overjoyed to see this version in production and even more so that the FRN scales will be ivory. Thank you very much for making this happen.

While I don't see white being any more prone to showing dirt than yellow, tan, pink, orange, light grey, light green, or light blue.

Sooner State Knives may still have one.

Thanx Paul. I guess you've been in on this one for a while.

Looking forward to comments.

Polished white or ivory g10 is nice stuff. Would look great on that Cru Wear Proficient that Spyderco is gonna make for me.
I own an assisted knife and am embarrassed to admit I enjoy it.
