Are you a big fan of real carbon fiber? If you're a car guy, this goes without asking. We are HUGE fans. There is no comparison to the real thing. You can stare at it for hours, as you tilt it in the light and become mesmerized, while your family members look at you like you're crazy. Traditionally, real CF scales are only usually found on overpriced, top-end knife brands (ranging from $100-300) but we were able to find this amazing quality, well-built model with awesome features that will hold up for many years. Red twill is even more rare on budget knife models, as you've probably noticed. This model is just a 1/10th the cost of most other models that feature this sweet handle scale material.
