I picked up a Victorinox Camper for an extremely good price with the matte nylon scales the other day. I’ve had a few with nylon scales but hadn’t thought about it much until now. I will admit I think I actually like them better than this standard scales. A Huntsman I keep in the truck. A couple of Hunters. The red one stays in a small water bladder pack, the green one has been to Africa, worked on deer, bear, elk, antelope and multiple other tasks over the last 16 years. Finally, a US marked current Soldier pattern with blackened tools. I wish the current Soldiers had a non-serrated blade though.
