This is basically the answer. You'll end up paying about the same as factory made and you can choose whatever color and style you want. Maybe some people just want a real factory made knife and don't want to mod theirs, but unless they make more factory Seki G10 this is the answer.
To be honest some of Boomer's reshaped G10 Delica handles have really made me consider buying a Delica, when I otherwise really don't have any interest in them. It's kind of like the deep carry pocket clip thing, everyone wants Spyderco to do them and yeah it might be great if they did, but truthfully the aftermarket has got it covered really well.
First and foremost: For me it would be horror if Spyderco made deep carry pocket clips, at least if they actually switched
to those as default clip...
/ As for custom scales: Problem could be, that some / many (?) people are not comfortable with disassembling their knives, let alone applying new scales. Don´t know how many custom scale makers do this for their customers - in Europe Cuscadi does, Suingab does not as far as I know.
And probably in many cases the knife actually will not have the same level of fit it had before with the factory scales?! (I don´t know, have very little experience with custom scales, in fact only own(ed) two Spydies with such...)
Top three going by pocket-time: Endura 4 in VG 10/Micarta-scales; Stretch 1 in VG 10; Endura 4 in HAP 40
