    I've recently devoloped an unexplainable obsession with anything International Orange in color :shrug: . My next purchase will hopefully be a "Safety Orange" Spyderco UKPK. I was hoping to find some other people with the same problem so we can start a support group ;D

    I know its fantastic, but being in FL a lot of stuff is orange so it may be learned behavior.

    That makes sense. I'm not sure where mine started. Outside of making stuff easy to find, it's just plain cool looking. I need to order some orange paracord for some laynards I've been thinking about making

    Bark River - along with many other makers - have Blaze Orange G-10 handles on their knives.

    I'm just saying, you know.... :-X

    Sorry, can't relate.

    I mean, yes I may be currently saving some files to my orange 8 gig Patriot X-Mini flash drive while looking at my orange aluminum water bottle. And ok, there might be an orange paracord lanyard that I tied onto said water bottle, but I don't have a problem. I mean, I bought 100 feet of the stuff so I need to use it on more than just my knives and flashlights, right? That's just common sense. And I've taken up knife making as a hobby and just happened to get a piece of orange G-10 in the mail yesterday for my next couple of projects, but that doesn't really count. And the orange netbook cover I got from DX that just happens to perfectly fit my bible was just a good deal.
    It's not a problem though, I can stop whenever I want. Blue, I like blue too...ahh, just don't have any on me at the moment...
    Geez, I even just ate an orange vitamin C. Where was the sign-up for that support group?

    well it starts with a knife with IO colouring, then you buy the paracord for the lanyard, then you buy a MARATAC watch band in IO, you might buy a seiko watch with a bright orange face to match the band, then you want a better watch with an orange face ie DOXA, then you buy the bright orange Havianas, buy a rescue whistle again in IO colouring, attach some more IO paracord so it matches that too, make some zipper pulls in IO, and maybe a IO paracord bracelet as well, then you start to notice it everywhere, IO colouring, it's EVERYWHERE, EVERYWHERE I GO, EVERYWHERE I LOOK, INTERNATIONAL ORANGE!!!! ARRRRGH!!!! :idiot2:

    Wow. After reading your replies I'm begining to think my problem may not be so bad after all. There might still be time to save myself. :idiot2: I'm thinking we may need to have an intervention for xthereal. BTW x, where did you get the orange g-10 ? I want to make scales for my cricket.

    Got mine here. It was the first order I had ever placed with them but I will absolutely be a repeat customer, there were no problems whatsoever. Got the G10, some black spacer and some 1095 steel, now just need the time to create something nice for myself!
