    Anyone know of different color handles for this knife. My google fu is only showing stuff for the griptillian. Specifically looking for blaze orange or yellow handles

    I've seen medium/dark green, I've seen dark red, I've seen blue

    But never seen Orange or Yellow.

    That said, any decent handle specialist could make up whatever material/colour you want to swap out the boring old black...

    You *could* bleach out the stock ones (RIT color remover?), then re-dye 'em to whatever color you want. No light colors, obviously, but darker colors might be doable.

    Then the Warn Barrage is the G10 handles, too bad can only get it with tanto blade. I'd love for them to release the mini version of the 581 barrage. Currently they say they have no plans of releasing it.

    REI did a special edition combo blade a year ago, but don't see on their site now.

    Edit: just read that even though not on website, some stores may have some remaining in stock. Also read that the steel on the REI SE, instead of standard 154CM, is S30V.

    from what I see on my phone the knife and the blue handles are sold together.
    Hmm this does bring up a good excuse for another benchmade purchase.

    Yes, it is a 580 Barrage (they also have/had) the 585 as well with Blue Handles, not sold separately.

    I've never seen one come up on the secondary market yet, it seems that those that buy them are keeping them. The Green REI I've seen pop up a couple ot times.

    Yeah, I too have been pestering them about that for a while now. I'll keep poking them until they either tell me to shut up or them make one just to shut me up... ;)
