More Smooth G-10?

Postby mpc2 » Thu Nov 25, 2021 10:56 am

I love the smooth G-10 Spyderco did , as in the native 5, para 3 , and paramilitary 2 Knifecenter Exclusives.
Is there potential for more (Chief, another paramilitary 2 run, ...) ?

Kind regards

Since Knifecenter likes to do these kinds of exclusives, I guess they'll try to make more with other models in the future !
They like to stick to their "touch" on exclusives, like with the black and orange pattern or with Pakkawood.

I have the knife center para 3 in smooth g10. I also recently got the Smokey mountain knife works exclusive para 2 in fat carbon. I find the texture of both very similar and I much prefer it to the grippy, tear my jeans up, regular g10.

I'm kind of the opposite concerning G-10 handle/scales. I really like the more "grippy" G-10 scales for most of the work I do. Some of the work that I encounter on a daily basis I really need a sure and confident grip for the most part. I also like the fact that most G-10 handles even when they are wet they still have has a nice grip.

But what the heck maybe I'll try one of these newer smooth G-10 handles just to see how it compares to Spyderco's other G-10 handles that they have used for some time now. G-10 and Titanium are currently my two favorite handle materials.

I'm okay with smooth G10 as long as it's on a model whose shape provides a secure grip in spite of the slick handle material. This is why I'm not thrilled with the smooth G10 on my DLT exclusive Kapara.
