    I'm a natural handle material kind of guy. Like em all. Natural materials have a warmth that synthetics can't match.

    I prefer synthetics like G10, Micarta or Carbon Fiber (I like the look of quality CF). I voted G10 and Marbled CF, which has a very unique and attractive appearance to me.

    I like the rougher micartas for the harder use knives but love wood for the looks. I like the character these take on with use too to get some personalization over time.
