I prefer the dark welt and dark edging on literally every color 8 model. That is not to say I dislike the antique edging/welt. I just don't like it as much.
I own, or have owned, all 5 CC colors shown. The almond and black really need no comment. In my experience, Walnut is a true dark brown, and Mahogany and Rosewood are more similar than Mahogany and Walnut. The swatches make Walnut and Mahogany appear strikingly similar, which, in my experience, has not been the case.

Go with one of the three on the Hampton. For your stated uses, the last one you list - model 9841 - seems like a winner to me.At a similar price point, and if you go the captoe route (straight tip or perf tip), don't be afraid to go English - something like the C&J Hallam (Benchgrade) or C&J Audley (Handgrade) would work well.
Interesting ...My ravello and color 8 PTBs would be a few of the last Alden models I would part with, and I have a reasonably sized Alden collection.
