To me, a monocoque FRN handle is more than strong enough. I'd also imagine it would help keep the cost more reasonable. Is there any reason screw pivots could not be used with an unlined FRN handle? If so, that might be the best of all worlds.
As for texture, any chance of Calypso Jr style fish scale bi-directional?
And, since you've asked for preferences, I have to admit, I'm a bit disappointed the swedged spine is being retained, and that yet another small non-tactical folder has to be disfigured by the Boye dent. Was hoping perhaps both of those would have gone the way of the integral FRN clip.
I agree with Paul. I really love the FRN you guys use with no liners. The current FRN model would be great without a molded clip and without the Boye dent.
Make it like Paul wants and I bet it will be perfect. I also am a fan of the Calypso Jr. fish scale pattern.
I however think the swedge looks pretty.
