    I've been carrying and using SO1001 #394 for a little bit now. The micarta scales are starting to show a little wear, finally. I prefer the greying, worn look on micarta, so I'm happy that these are finally turning from solid black.

    I took a few shots of the SO1001 and the UF1001 together. You can really tell the difference in the size of the weave between the canvas and linen micartas. The canvas used for the Pillar's scales looks to be "natural" colored, with the resin being black. I'm not sure about the linen used for the scales on the SO, though. It looks like the fabric might be black.

    Anyway, enjoy the pics.

    While the other knife still looks good, I much prefer the canvas micarta, mostly for feel.

    I think they got it right between the Pillar and the Strat Ops / Tac Ops. I really like the linen on the autos, for everyday general use. I like the grippier canvas on the Pillar for outdoors use.
