    I struck out using search. And Google. And Bing. We all know the pics on Buck's website are not always representative. Anybody have a pic of an orange G10 Spitfire?

    Thanks. I saw that. I think its just a pic from Buck's website. I would like to see a pic of an actual one in the flesh if anybody has one. If I decide to order a custom it will either have green or orange G10. I saw some pics of a green one Makael posted, but haven't found an orange. Not a big deal in any event. I'll either go green or order orange on spec. Or just think about ;)

    Satin blade? Your last pic looks to be a good rendition of what to expect. Quite lovely.

    Thanks!
    Yeah I went with the satin. The black blade actually looked spectacular in the rendition. I don't have anything against coated blades. Given my typical use, I doubt I would notice a difference in performance, but all other things equal, I tend to go for uncoated blades. Off the top of my head, I can only think of two knives I have with coated blades.
    I'll take pics in a couple of months ;)

    It will not. However, an orange handled, satin bladed, 119 sounds like a good idea for November BOTM.

    I ordered a S30V satin blade, no fuller, with a Blue Wood handle. Ordered 01/17/21. Hopefully, I am about half way through my wait.

    If it didnt have that hump on the blade I'd a ordered one when they first came out. I really like the handle shape but just cant get ove thr hump, i have no doubt it is very functional, but... A hole like the vantage would be good.

    Admittedly, its not the most aesthetically pleasing. I do like the jimping on it. Good place to rest the thumb.

    Not fond of thumb rises either. I wonder if a 285 Bantam blade would fit that handle?

    The Canadian version got rid of the hole, but kept the hump. Guess you could file it down.

    That would work but it would cut into the BUCK stamp.
