contest over, thanks for playing. winner is at the bottom.

First person to guess what color I dyed the micarta scales on my new Becker BK14 gets it. If more than one person guesses it I'll randomly pick from the names.

I'd be interesting in knowing exactly how you dyed micarta.

You didn't die them. You stained them.

Rit dye from walmart. I used the pretreat product too. Soaked it about thirty minutes, rinsed, then soaked it in the dye. I think using a dye constitutes dying whoever said staining. :D:p

I think most micarta is laminated...these scales are not. Maybe that's why it was confusing to some people. I like the raw feel though. If someone knows how to achieve a smooth laminated feel id be interested...

Burgundy, but not sure if that's the same as oxblood. (And "a shade" of red could be anything from pink to purple, so that's kind of unspecific! :p )

The package said purple and in this pic it looks purple...

HOWEVER it looks very burgundy in person.

To keep it fun I am drawing 6 pieces of paper from a hat. Mg.mikael who guessed it just right gets 3 chances, jshirley gets 2, and that cheater kingpin008 gets 1. Will post up the winner in a sec :)

(by the way, it was still a little wet around the screws)

Please email me by clicking my username, mg.mikael and I will mail you the biotac.

Thanks, it was fun.

Hey, I'm no cheater! I was very distinct in my color choices (bizarre as they were), unlike sooomebody who decided to go with "red or a shade thereof".

Hey, you said it looks burgundy in person which happens to be a shade of red thereof! When do I get my biotac?? :D

I was trying to be fair, I kinda thought "a shade of red" was too vague...sorry vonderek. they are just ten bucks though :p
