Any reason the h1/lc200n steels only come with yellow or green handles? Needed for visibility?

I wish they would offer the steels with normal black/blue, less bright colors for every day use. I am not a big fan of carrying knives that stand out, but love knives that are corrosion resistance.

I currently blade swapped mine, but would love the option for a less bright handle.

All the lightweight salts (Atlantic, Pacific, Tasman, and Salt) come in H1 with black handles. Some with TiCN blades as well.

Bingo.
That was the intention.

Check out this cool vid that shows color saturation at depth.

The salt, Atlantic, Pacific and Tasman at least can be had with black handles and the salt and Pac salt can be had with a black blade too.

None of the newer lc200n models yet though. Unless you count the all titanium spydiechef.

Yeah, I like the bright colors on some of my Salts because I only use them for outdoor water activities where I want to be able to see and find them quickly.

But, I'm glad my Spydiechef has the Ti handles.

Id be ok if they all came in black variants. Seems like they all used to come in black/satin and yellow/satin and black/DLC. Dye is fun but also semi permanent and will wear off over time.

Just buy what you want and swap them out. You might lose a buck or two on the resale but you’ll have what you want.

i wish they'd also come in coated variants of the colored handles. black and yellow or black and green would look sweet. and you could still see them under water without carrying a lure.

I think that all black lc200n models will be forthcoming. (no inside info, just a hunch)

Also, the Waterway.

Is the Autonomy 2 in the Salt line or no?
