    Buffed AECM all the way. It really brings out the colours and contrast!

    This is bullshit and I won’t stand for it. No way my boy Tony is gonna jones for some ECAM empty handed while I sit here with some sweet ass ironwood on a UF by his hand. PM me brother, ECAM is like Frank’s Red Hot, I put that shit on everything, so I have spare sets. Just need to know what model you want them for, if I have them, they are yours.

    Don't make his head any bigger than it is. Marc is a certified d*ckhead but even I must admit that he's one awesomely generous d*ckhead ;)

    Actually, I think that's exactly what I took those pictures for. Let me go look if I can find it.

    Maybe on your profile wall? Tony's gold membership has lapsed. Just thinking loud.

    NVM... Look below.

    I'm new to Carothers but have been oogling them for about a year (finally bought a UF from a member here just recently). Can anyone make a functional comparison between an edge cut micarta handle and a standard micarta handle? Is the edge cut micarta any more grippy--specifically when wet? Or is it the pull mostly esthetic? Thanks in advance!

    Darn it! I was hoping there was a practical reason so I could justify the cost. They ARE beautiful... I'll likely try to score one with them anyway. Thanks for the info!
