    what I like most of those pics, is to see the full tang of the Seal 2000 exposed.(didn't ever seen it before)
    and the fact that the zytel handle couldn't be broken off ,but had to be grinded off.

    that's a very tough construction indeed.

    If it makes you feel better, I have an extra Seal 2000 that I ground the handle off of, too. I plan on figuring out how to make a Tiger stripe or Midnight tiger stripe G10 handle for it. However, this is an extra one that I bought used (and abused) for only $25. I have another slightly used one that I bought new which I would not grind the handle off of. It was actually helpful when I first saw this thread because then I knew what to expect when I ground the handle off.

    to me it was a good way to show the inner core of the seal 2000.
    seeing how tough/well it is costructed.and if one seal 2000 gets wasted to show hundreds or more people...
    I see it just as those knifetests,where the knife gets destroyed(in the end) .

    the original version of the seal 2000 I like much better than the one with the rope handle.
    I do not like rope handles at all(have had some of those).it just doesn't feel good in the hand.not a tight good grip.
    I can't see why those strider knives are so popular with some (or many?)navy seals.
    aside from the awkward feeling in the hand,doesn't the rope start to move and slide when it gets wet?
    I do know of one sailor who didn't like his rope handled knife because of that problem.the rope got all loose when getting wet.and wet it gets on that boat.

    I hate cord wrap handles also. they are uncomfortable in my hands. I'd take contoured synthetic / wooden handles anytime.
