    OK I'm Now Foliage Hooked!

    Talk about addicting, I cant stop, please help me...........

    My 1st Purchase was a FG Military. Carried this every day until I bought a Szabo which is now permanently attached to my hand.



    Picked up a super nice JD at a recent show.



    Purchase # 3 - Dragonfly



    Purchase # 4 - Barong, love this blade!



    All 4 side - by - side. I hope it stops here



    Thanks for looking,
    Cheers, DT
    Fish on!

    Got a FG UKPK recently and really love the color. I wish I could get some G10 and have some fixed blade handles made in the same color.

    Branden, thanks for posting. Yes, I actually do like that Goddard and the style of that textured grip. I believe they call it Volcano and it has a black coated clip?

    I only have my Rock Lobster in foliage green but I really like it. I would buy any knife I own in a foliage green version. I think it would look especially good on the Southard.

    Yup, volcano grip texture, and the clip is a matte/satin black finish. This thing is also much lighter and thinner than you'd guess given how large the cutting length is.

    Update: added a super nice foliage Endura, and a Mule 18 to my collection.

    Not sure what I was after here in this pic, but thought the line up was pimp.
