    Nice to see A.G. put a black beauty handle out.

    Looks nice. How slick is it? I gave away a Spyderco a few years ago because the glass fiber handle was beautiful but not grippy.

    The handle is very elegant and distinctive looking but I would likewise be concerned that it might be too slick to get a good grip on it.

    Why do you gentlemen think it might be slick?

    A.G. Russell's description says the handle is alternating spacers of black carbon fiber and brass. Don't know the exact composition of the carbon fiber material but I imagine the brass spacers could make it feel slick.

    Not "carbon fiber", "fiber". The fiber spacer material.

    The material looks similar to that used on some of the traditional Buck knives...which is too slick.

    They're not the same materials.
