I really prefer the various sprint runs that Spyderco puts out and the variations that Benchmade puts out - mostly because I have become a bit of a steel snob. I also really like to use my knives too. During the course of use, I drop them from time to time. This messes up the G10 handles. The G10 splinters, for lack of a better term. When this happens, I have been getting some fine grit sandpaper and sanding the area the best I can. It kinda detracts from having a nice clean looking knife with smooth lines, but it seems necessary. Plus I suspect this will greatly lower the value of these knives which are a step above the original model, but still not true collector knives. Don't get me wrong; I'm not grinding away huge chunks, but the original line of the handle now has a dip or two here and there.
What do you all do?
