The carbon fiber scales feature a twill weave with a textured matte finish, for a reliable grip in all weather conditions. Southern Grind knives use high quality materials and heavy duty construction to create products any knife enthusiast would be proud to own. This is a black drop point knife with a G-10 handle and an Emerson wave.
With the spider monkey the feel is that is an Excellent knife but a little to short. With the Bad monkey the size is perfect but the blade material could be better (I love my Skyline with the same blade). These are the comments we all have heard but the construction quality of both are exceptional and a big step up in knife making. Thanks Southern Grind for two perfect pieces in my collection that I will love for ever.
