    Any chance scales would be available for a mini Stryker II, thanks.

    Just got some of igorded's scales this week. Ordered then on the 2nd, they arrived on the 25th with most of that time being in shipping.

    I absolutely love them. They are thin and grippy, but most importantly the G10 gets rid of that hollow sound/feel of the stock handles. I also love that I was able to get it without the left hand clip holes and lanyard to match my personal carry style.

    Looks great! The side that is "grooved"...is it flat or does the G10 have some contour to it? I'm trying to decide what I want for my 550.

    Both sides are grooved with the same pattern. You can see it clearly in the flat on presentation shot (second pic). It provides nice grip without grabbing too much when putting it in the pocket.

    I have a couple deep carry clips coming in from Benchmade and will try those out, but honestly with this knife, I may actually end up preferring the standard clip.

    By far, the best part of these new scales is the new weight distribution. It feels totally different in hand and when deploying and it is an beautiful thing!

    Thanks for clarifying. So are the scales flat or are they "crowned"? I have a set of his black G10 (orange liners), but with the Anso pattern, on my other Griptilian. They are fantastic! Definitely need a set on the new one.

    Here is another picture that might illustrate it a bit better. To answer your question, there is a very slight crown and the edges are rounded off. As you can see, compared to the stock scales, the G10 ones are noticeably slimmer.

    Bought some scales from Igor and couldn’t be happier. Quick responses to emails were greatly appreciated and the fit and finish are great!

    Had to head up to work but I will upload pics when home. :thumbsup:

    Not the best pic but good enough...

    The scales are a big improvement over the stock ones. It makes the knife feel more sturdy and I prefer the slimmer feel.

    Only regret is that I didn't get the TI clips when I ordered.

    Thanks Igor!

    I absolutely love that black with blue accents look -- but I am a bit bias. ;-)

    I actually kept going back and forth between micarta and G10 until I saw yours :D

    What is the best way to get ahold of some of these? Just eBay? (Sorry, I didn't read through the whole thread...)
