    Yeah, so I'm going to be buying a new knife (Bone Collector Axis), but I cannot decide between the G10 or Walnut. Both look great, and I like the "heft" from G10, but I also like the look of the walnut. I can't commit to one or the other. Someone push me off the fence, please!

    If you're going to carry it frequently I would choose G10.

    If you like the walnut, get the walnut.

    It appears it's not real walnut anyway, but something like walnut color Dymondwood.

    Which is epoxy impregnated plywood, died whatever color they want it to be.

    Which is nearly as indestructible as G-10 anyway.

    Thats why they make knife scales, rifle stocks, and compound bow handles out of it.

    They also have green/black layered G10, which is what I got and it looks outstanding.

    That green and black G10 is gorgeous, but I got a really good deal on the black G10, so I had to take it. Chances are, I'll be getting the Walnut one soon enough, though. lol

    If it were solid walnut, there'd be a slight maintenance issue -- likely VERY slight, as I'm sure it would have been sealed and stabilized. It's clearly a laminate, though, and probably maintenance-free. I think it looks nicer.

    Get both.

    Abuse the G10 version, save the walnut for light duty only.
