    I recently purchased my first ESEE-4 (plain edge, black blade, grey scales) and have a question regarding the color of the thin inserts between the tang and scales. On the knife that I purchased the inserts are red; however, on most of the pictures I see on the internet the inserts are green (the picture of the ESEE-4 on ESEE's website shows green inserts). I am just curious whether ESEE/ROWEN changed the color of the inserts to red (and that is now how all 4's are made) or whether they still make the knife with both colors and it's essentially random whether one gets a knife with red or green inserts. Does anyone know?

    Mine has green inserts. The only red inserts I have ever seen on any ESEE are on the ESEE 3's they give to their students for The Randal Adventure Training classes.
    Maybe they are changing things up a bit.

    Well, it would seem they have changed things up.
