Did RANDALL stop using the yellow micarta because it fades?

The shop used it for nearly 20 years. I think Westinghouse discontinued it.

One knife I acquired was probably stored in the sheath and changed on the end....it may have been gold micarta

I have seen examples of micarta go from yellow to dark brown. I seem to remember some Vietnam ribbon knives that Behring made had this issue.

It all depends on the maker and the resin.

Exposure to UV light is thought to be the main culprit on the Westinghouse material. I have seen some that were on display with the side facing out almost orange while the inside facing side a faint yellow.

I have also seen some that was almost white or an off white color, but I don't think those handles ever saw daylight.
