Favorite handle color on Swiss Army Knives?

I just thought of a companion thread to the one on SAK tools.

What's your favorite handle color?

Most of mine are red, but I have dark green, blue, white, and I want a little Classic in bright yellow. Other than the basic red, I guess I prefer the dark green, not often found.

In the Alox handles, I opt for the basic silver. The anodizing of other colors wears off and the knife looks awful.

RED, so when I lay it down, it is easier to spot.

The classic red, or forest green.

If it ain't red - it ain't a Swiss Army Knife!

Just like a 9mm is not a 1911.

Silver alox, only because the color doesn't go away. My trusty, old red Pioneer has morphed into an off-pink color due to pocket wear. I have a black alox I'm very fond of, but I fear it'll be the victim of pocket wear as well.

It is true that the Alox handles in colors other than the basic silver tend to lose the anodizing.

Red, but I have one with buffalo horn scales that I'm partial to.
