My thoughts exactly! My wife actually despises all the stuff in the Gun, Knife and Hunting community that just add pink or purple to something to make women want it, e.g. pink camo.
I did the same thing to my Benchmade Hunt knife. I sanded it just enough so it didn’t snag, it still bugged me enough that I really never carried it again. Good news though, there are lots of scale options for you.
