So, I really want to grab one or the other as I want to start carrying a modern slip joint in my work khakis. I'm a huge fan of carbon fiber but I think if I go with the Proper I might try the micarta scale version. I'd also get the sheepsfoot blade on the Proper. For those who own or have tried both which do you prefer? No, both is not an option right now as I don't even know whether I can get used to not having my main EDC clipped to my pocket.
