HEST/F - color of the production G10 scale?

Postby JohnnyScience » Thu Feb 17, 2011 1:29 am

I'm looking at having a lanyard made to match the HEST/F production I should be receiving any day.

I was going to make it black & green to match the G10 handle.

But is the G10 handle they are using Olive Drab green or Foliage Green?

They all turn the same reddish-brown color when they are bloodied.

Are you sure? Because I could swear I just read a little while ago that it was Foliage Green & all of the pictures I'm seeing on here makes them look almost desert tan. Not a dark green OD?

Ahh I found it again, it was on DPgear.com

"American-made Foliage Green G10 handle scale"

So I guess it is Foliage Green.

I'd like to see someone produce other G10 colors & also even a carbon fiber

But now I just found this RYP post on BF's explaining the different models:

Production has Olive Drab G10 and flat black Milspec coating and its sold by dealers.

I'm confused. I just hope its a darker looking green in person & not the lighter, almost tan green the pics that are being posted on here lately....

OK, maybe the knife threads are more gay than the watch thread.

I hope its pea soup green.

I have a variety of lanyard combos on hand, think I'll just pick one that looks right and go with it.

The scale is Olive Drab G10 coarse texture. In real life it is soft matte green like the background color of this chat forum. It photographs dark but it looks lighter than this official sample pic. It looks closer to Jade Green in this sample.
