Preferably not the TKC or the factory micarta grips. I can't seem to find any.

I actually like the TKC grips.
That said, I have the factory canvas micarta on a couple of the bigger knives (BK5 and 7) and like them, not love them.

Honestly, I like the home-made stippling I did on my BK9 the best.

I can only imagine the horror show my stippling attempt would turn out to be. LOL

I've got the factory micarta scales on the BK9 and I like them alright, but I'd really prefer G10.

What don't you like about the TKC G10 scales?

I didn't care for the installation method on the one pair that I've seen. The pins, screws on either side, etc. I much prefer the factory three screw and nut method. It's much more straight-forward.

Check out these scales.
Uses factory nut/screws.

I have no experience with them.

The TKC bushing/screws aren't as bad as you think. I use them on my primary go-to ESEE's and I've never ever had a problem.

Thanks!

Do you prefer ESEE over Becker knives?

Not necessarily. They both have their advantages/disadvantages.

The smaller (3,4) ESEE handles are too small. I like the larger TKC scales for these knives. Makes it more comfy and usable.

I'm rather fond of the Laser Strike as my go-to knife when I'm camping in the backwoods. But I'll grab an ESEE 4 for short hikes.

Lately I've been enamoured with the ESEE/Becker Eskabar and keep it sheathed to my chest pack when hiking. I find it much more usable than the Izula sized knives.

However my absolute favorite from either the Becker and ESEE lines is the Becker BK15. This is my primary knife carried daily attached to my man purse. The perfect defensive knife for the form I study.

Now you will receive us. We do not ask for your poor, or your hungry. We do not want your tired and sick. It is your corrupt we claim. It is your evil that will be sought by us. With every breath we shall hunt them down. Each day, we will spill their blood till it rains down from the skies.

Do not kill, do not rape, do not steal, these are principles that every man of every faith can embrace. These are not polite suggestions, these are codes of behavior and those of you that ignore them will pay the dearest cost. There are varying degrees of evil, we urge you lesser forms of filth not to push the bounds and cross over, into true corruption, into our domain.

For if you do, one day you will look behind you and you will see we three. And on that day, you will reap it. And we will send you to whatever god you wish.

I've wanted to pick up the Laser Strike for awhile now. Just haven't done it.

I don't have any newer pics.
This one is from when I first did my BK9.


This is a bK15 that I carry regularly and my go-to defensive knife that I keep attached to my man purse.
