I had a mini grip with the Wilkins aftermarket scales on it, still not happy with myself that I sold it. The scales were kind of a milky green, beautiful knife. Sometimes we get so hung up on Spyderco we forget to check out the other guys. Benchmade makes some really nice knives too, as well as several other makers. I love my Spyderco's but there is always room for some other makers in the EDC rotation.
Those who choose to live a life without risks, arrive safely at death's door.
