Exclusive fixed blade knife - micarta samples

We got these samples from Shadetree Custom Composites http://www.shadetreecustom.com/ and we'd like to gauge community interest in producing an exclusive fixed blade knife.
What do you think of these? Are there specific colors or materials (blue denim, firehose, camo fatigues, etc.) that you think would make a really cool knife handle? Are there blade styles and sizes that you would prefer? If you could pick any maker or manufacturer to design and/or produce a knife, who would you choose?
This is just the beginning of a conversation that may lead to a community-driven product. You're welcome to post your own photos and links, or even invite potential collaborators to join the conversation. Thanks!

I think the patriot by Lt Wright would be a great size especially in 3v blade steel. It's not a crazy price for a fixed yet EDC capable for most.

Green's, Blues and Blacks for me. Not much for fixed blades but it is not out of the question. I bought 2 here recently.

Red or orange micarta, with a contrasting color micarta backspacer

Like micarta, blues, purples, grays... it’s nice to know about the micarta “fill” material: papers, fabrics.

I like the green or the herringbone. Like others have said, good steel and sub $150, I'm probably in.

The Herringbone (3rd from left) looks pretty awesome.

If you guys make a reasonable sized (3.5-5.5in blade) fixed blade with unusual micarta scales I will purchase it.

I like them all, but the blade is more important to me. How about some S90V or M390 with Bradford Knifes or I would really like to see a collaboration with Carothers Performance Knives based on their EDC fixed blade.

Want: 27 Inch 1440p 144hz+ Monitor w/ USB-C PD + KVM
With many of us working from home and gaming in the same space, I've grown to love my setup that allows me to switch between my work machine and gaming PC on the same display, keyboard, and mouse with the Viewsonic VP2771. The only problem is -- that display is only 60hz. So, I'm in the market for a new work + gaming monitor with this criteria below and found them pretty difficult to find: Features Wanted 27 Inches 1440p resolution for QHD gaming 144hz+ refresh rate w/ FreeSync or G-SYNC USB-C PD input for use with notebooks (specifically MacBooks) DP + HDMI ports for other sources 2+ USB ports for peripherals + USB-B output to PC Built-in KVM switch between USB-C and USB-B VESA mountable There's exactly 1 solid and affordable option: the Gigabyte M27Q, but I'm not impressed with the overall quality in reviews. The Eve Spectrum is on its way this spring it looks like, going above and beyond these features with a 240hz option and many of the same features, coming out of a...

Spyderco dragonfly 2 Drop exclusive?
I would LOVE to have a Spyderco dragonfly 2 Drop exclusive on one of the most iconic model in Spyderco. Maybe like the super gold steel that drop did with delica. The color on the scale can be the drop color. That will be awesome! Picture is me dragonfly collections in various color and steels

Gerlach Watches
Hey everyone I hope your week is going well. I was wondering if anyone in the community has experience with Gerlach watches? I would love to see a few of their line show here on Drop some day. I know they wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea, but they are unique in that I don't believe I have seen any Polish made watches here before. Well, I don't know that I have seen Polish watches anywhere LOL! thoughts? http://gerlach.org.pl/

Completely surprised by the lack of blade diversity here on Drop...
I’ve been a collector of Blades since before my teens, and a retailer coming up on 15… or maybe 20 years. Drop has really been kind of an interesting experience for me, because I do occasionally get to see some unusual tech and sometimes EDC items that otherwise I might not have been aware of. And maybe it’s because I have a deep love of cutlery and bladed weapons, but I find myself trolling through the site looking at it what’s available; and it’s just it’s pretty much the same. And the bladed community here is just always confused me.. every single knife is about the same, they’re almost all drop points and although the handle materials change and brands change.. it’s really just the same knife over and over and over again... occasionally you’ll see a tanto or a slight variant; but rarely… and almost never a serrated blade. And I’m just deeply amazed at this diversion of serrated blades. And I’m just surprised there isn’t more of a request for diversity here.... and I...

Can we get Sony E-Mount or other mirrorless camera options please..
Would be nice to see some Sony E mount full frame cameras on here. I currently shoot with a A99 and they killed the lense path for better or more option lenses and now is all E-Mount. 🤔

There Are Pandas, and Then There Are Pandas.
And this isn't either of them! The Pandas we're talking about here, are watches, not bears. And what got me thinking about them (again) was a link posted this morning by @cm.rook who pointed a few of us to the very attractive (and not terribly priced) Yema "Rallygraph" Panda which, in it's most traditional arrangement, looks like the one on the left, but can also be had in the version on the right: The model on the left is a true Panda, while the model on the right is called a reverse Panda. The reason for that distinction is clear--Panda bears, only come in the first arrangement. Now at this point, everyone should be thinking about the most well-know Panda, The Rolex Panda, which is actually a Daytona, and among Rolex Daytonas, the most famous of which is the Paul Newman Daytona, which was famous first, because it was Paul's, and second because it sold at auction for $17.8 million (US Dollars). The story of that auction is well-known so I'll only...
