I really like ESEE's blades, and their micarta is okay too, but personally I prefer The Knife Connection's G10 scales as many of you do as well. I have been looking at the 3 HM model they came out with, but I really wish Knife Connection's scales would fit, but after chatting with them I found out they will not. However, they are in the works and will likely be out by the end of the year. Pretty excited. Also....if you have ESEE's new PR4 kephart and you hate the new scalloped scales they come with or that's whats keeping you from buying it, fear not, TKC is coming out with G10 scales for it about the same time. Great news on both counts.
