2016 desert camo classic and huntsman...kinda dissapointing.
« on: August 30, 2016, 11:45:43 AM »
was waiting to see them, now that i have, the pattern and color scheme is kinda dissapointing.
perhaps in real life it may look better, but it looks like a white base rather than sand.

From the pictures they look OK, in a Desert Stormy kind of way. I don't see any white plastic.
I just wish Victorinox was a bit more generous with the special edition scales. When was the last time you saw a Mountaineer with anything but boring red? The Huntsman always gets the fun stuff!

ah, the base looked white on my phone.
now that i see it on my PC, it looks a very light sand / beige.

not sure if i can post the links here, but here they are.

Me, I've still got my heart set on one of these French beauties. Which are getting hard to find these days.
39 Euros is a lot for a Huntsman with white scales and a dab of paint, but they're sooo pretty.

I just wish they could find a way to make these drawings/colourings more robust.

You put it in your pocket and the beautiful design wears off.

Its not exactly what comes to my mind when I think of desert camo. But still kind of cool looking.

Does anybody know..........???
Are they the "SHRINK WRAPPED" type like the desert digi camo( #3 in pic)? .........or the "PAINTED/INKED ON" scales like the old Camo (2 on left)?

Listed as Camo Fun. Depending on the location, most of them could actually be pretty effective.
