    Still way too much money for a knife with a scumbag's name on it.

    Never tried aluminum on a knife but probably won’t either. Just preference, I am sure that it is more than capable as a handle material.

    I just prefer either all ti or ti/g10 in a frame lock

    SKI has been making aluminum lego SMFs since they were grinding convex blade tangs. At least since the early 2000s. I recall an SMF with the logo near the pivot and a blade in M4 steel. I had one of those for a short time but the lockup was poor due to the tang. Anyway, they've been around for a while.

    w.r.t. "Mick" -- I am a believer that everyone deserves a second chance. Yeah, his recollection of his mil-career and incarceration is shady at best. I'm not gonna marry the guy, just buying a knife. I'll probably flip it anyway. ;)

    Agreed. I've actually held a smf before, the ergonomics suck (it felt like a block) add to that mick burger strider wannabe army ranger sucks and you have a large nope.

    I think Mick wisened up awhile ago to the reality that if he’s going to charge $5-1500 for a knife he needs to use decent materials and PM steels.

    Ernie E does not understand that concept and (aside from the fanboys) constantly gets criticism for it.

    While I like EE's designs, his production stuff is laughable. IMO.

    The show side looks pretty good except for the tiger stripes.
