Beer, or whisky... You are about a month late....

 If ya mean "colors", Orange & White work for me.
LOL

  Seriously though,Black & darker colors like Brown & Tan go with Green. Consider "camouflage" & the "tacti"cool"look.... { Not forgetting that the "Black & Tans" were against the Orangemen long ago & people suffered & died. ;) }


Otherwise, depending on the color you are using be it a darker green or a lighter green. Perhap you could use a "color chart" like they have at paint stores to get an idea of what YOU & the ones ya want to make this stuff for, would like as a "contrasting, "semi- contrasting"or "blending" type color scheme.

G'luck!
 & I hope ya appreciated the humor. I do/did. LOL

I like the look of toxic green liners with many colors. Here is a quick google search of green liners.

These images are copied from the internet to show a point and I don'town the knives.

Make your own liners and make them any color you want.

well i must say the g10 liners were not as exspensive as i thought.
so i placed an order for some.   i'm still going to experiment though just the same.
