    I don't even know what ghost scales are.

    G10 in its natural form is opaque jade in color. I think the ghost g10 is another color portion underneath a thin layer of that natural g10 so it comes through in a muddied sort of way.

    The two Manix XLs at the bottom of the third column here are Natural G10 aka Ghost G10 aka Jade G10. I think our friend Icky here wants to see some examples of the CPK Ghost G10 scales as they are pretty unique with the colors thrown in.

    Thanks..yes, that's what I was looking for..a good pic of the orange, blk and red..thanks again, everyone. I like blk the best, dont think they are available w/ this last sale on the FK2's. Micarta is my favorite, unbuffed..rag and the Antique stuff Nathan has is beautiful. These ghost seemed cool and worth a look, but..may take a pass them unless a set of black is available.

    Thanks again!

    I have the Ghost Black on an FK2, but I will say, it's difficult to convey how it looks in person, with just a still photo (and I've never tried posting a video online). Maybe some of the folks with Ghost scales who DO have experience posting short video clips, can take a short vid and post it?

    Thanks for the heads up. I know typical scale material can look very different in person as opposed to image..w/ these semi translucent's..I'd imagine they would/could even more so..

    Thanks @Burton Knut

    Yea..those are cool. The black are my favorite,

    Struck out on the FK2 anyway lol..I'd be chasing a set of black ghosts if I'd have scored, for sure.


    Thanks again for the pics! :thumbsup:

    Yeah, the translucent layer creates a 'depth' that's tough to capture in still photos.
