Res-c = best handle for hard impacts.
Linen micarta = best feel and looks combo.
Canvas micarta = best grip/traction.
G10 = neatest colors and helping to balance out a blade heavy knife like the Butaniku (which makes an awesome user by the way).
G10, unless it's a nice micarta like tigerhide I've got way too many black canvas "new and old green tint ver" knives around, and like I was saying above micarta works better on users meant for choppin' less shock to the hand or tuning fork effect but not all my knives are users some get babied .
