I'd go with, let's see, a better knife that would cost more.
How 'bout a SS Civilian, with blue G-10 inlay, CMP-440V blade, with the SS parts of the knife black Ti coated? Put a black clip with gold bug on, or maybe even a cool blue clip.
I'd buy a couple, and would perfer that over a military (sorry <img src="sad.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>)
If not do the military idea...maybe do both <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>.
An honest man's pillow is his peace of mind
