    Only color I've seen that you haven't mentioned is OD green. Knifeworks.com has them.

    Yup, there are some now-discontinued colors, including a bright lime green. They were made in 440C (before the steel switch). There's also gray, in a limited edition. (There's the Griptilikins, but 3rd party stuff is anyone's guess. :idiot2: I'm just talking about "official" stuff.)

    Yeah... but they sure are cool! And from what I hear... they're worth it too.

    What color are the current grips on the Ritter? I thought Ritter stuff tended to have high-vis yellow... in which case, I would wonder why bother buying a Ritter and then putting LOW-vis colored grips on it... :lolhammer:


    Now, about that PURPLE one... That clip looks awesome. Did the purple version come with the purple clip, or was that done special?

    Comparing the way it looks now with the Mini Griptilian I have on me, it looks like that clip is indeed of a different design, and not stock.
    Looks pretty cool, but I can't tell--does it attach with only two screws? It seems like the center screw would not be usable since it's blocked by the clip itself.

    Yep. This is my wife's pink ritter mini grip from last year's Valentine's Day.

    Yeah, not stock.  Incidentally, the Benchmade Pika clip is supposed to mount successfully onto the Griptilian this way, for a "OEM" low-rider clip.

    P.S. I seem to remember that certain Tanto and Ritter versions use slightly different scales than the sheepsfoot/drop point versions. Be sure that what you're planning works with the knife you want to mod. =)

    Are you asking just for mini-grip colors, or full size Grips too?

    Other than the mentioned colors, I've seen Tan. There's a "hunter's camo" pattern as well (either Mossy Oak or RealTree, or something like it). Sooner or later, they'll put orange scales out on the mini as well.

    I haven't seen blue, BTW.

    I bought this one and a matching pink light for my wife for this year's Valentine. She loves it.
