Just got a new Esee-5, and I was caught off guard by the size of the handle. I have an Esee-4 and a whole clutch of Izulas and love them all, but can't seem to get a grip on the 5. It is so thick and unwieldy I feel like I'm trying to shake hands with a 2x4. I can't see myself doing much more than chopping with this blade. Anyone else have this problem? I've got average size hands, and have never had a problem gripping bigger knives... Should I take out the spacers? Trim the micarta? Or ditch the scales all together and wrap the handle? Thanks in advance.
