Oh I love "Canvas Micarta" handles at the risk of committing a sacrilege I almost bought a BUSSE fixed blade because I loved that particular handle so much. But I quickly came to my senses and started immediately gazing at some newer Spyderco fixed blades instead Just to think of the atrocity I almost committedlegOFwhat? wrote: ↑Fri Aug 28, 2020 7:19 amJoe, I happen to love Micarta and have made a dozen or so sets of MT scales with Micarta alone (w/ G10 liners). Nearly all my folders are G10 and zero with Micarta! It's really weird but, G10 on any of my fixed blades are always pushed aside preferring linen or canvas Micarta, polished or not I love them more and the added weight adds to the enjoyment. 40 grit sandpaper on Micarta feels really nice in use and with sweaty hands and oddly polished up is just as grippy...IMO of course
It is quite a chore to cut shape and sand and the smell will drive away family members, but I enjoy the challenge. It's super durable too! It's the CruWear of handle materials lol.
Only Ti I own is on clips so I can't comment on that
Edit: I lied, I do have a Micarta handled PM2 in my pocket atm it's aftermarket scales so I haven't purchased a folder with Micarta....whew I'm getting too old for this crud
That would be so cool if Spyderco ever did a Sprint Run of the TEMPERANCE 1 model and used "Canvas Micarta" handles for them. So glad you brought that up
My love of G-10 handles is pretty much based on "function" more than anything else. I've never had a folder or fixed blade slip out of my hand>> nor did I ever lose my grip on a G-10 handle. And I'm even including the first generation G-10 that Spyderco used on their RENEGADE models of the mid nineties.
