    I'm not familiar with Lightfighter.
    They're made by 'Slangvel' an older vet. the only place I buy them from is from him on ebay.
    He makes them in at least a dozen styles and in genuine camo from several countries.
    I have a few of them:

    Has anyone got a well balanced close up of a red linen micarta handle (don't mind the model). I also don't don't mind if you have polished it up a bit. Thanks for the help in advance - I find the handle options too small to see properly.

    If you look back through pics on the S! Facebook page there is a shot of 4.1 handles showing all their canvas, linen and G10 options. This probably isn't as close up as you want, but I took this from there. The middle in the bottom row.

    EDIT: WTF Armalite, this color never appealed to me, but now I'm thinking it would look great on a GSO 5. Thanks for making me second guess myself =)

    Thanks very much for tracking this down. I know eh!? I am never really a huge fan of colourful handles to that degree, but for some reason that deep red feels luxurious?! I dunno but I suspect thw combination with a black kydex sheath would striking.

    I think you like blaze orange as much as I like OD Green Canvas! I have two survive knives with that handle type now and if I can jump on the 5.0's when they come available, Ill hopefully have 3.

    Great minds think alike. Maybe a gray sheath, but my first thought was black.

    Riz,

    How is the bead/lanyard setup working out for your necker? I tried to add just a paracord wrap and didn't like how it felt, might give your setup a try..
