    It's hard to decide which one is nicer.

    Just got mine today, very nice I think, feels solid in the hand and as others have noted the grip's groove pattern seems to allow for a very confident grip.

    The grey coating is interesting, nice touch I think, we'll see how well it holds up over time.

    Sheath is done well, some have complained over the small belt loop slot but my 1 1/2" wide belt fits it easily. There is a 'patch' of leather sewn on the inside area of where the belt loops are slit to keep the outside from the inside.
    The previous owner said that the sheath came that way from CRK, inside you can see a small slice into that piece of leather, but you can see how that can easily happen when returning the knife to the sheath. The sheath retains the knife well, allowing just about half the length of the handle inside, it should keep that way a good long time. I think Gfeller's does a very good job sheath wise.

    I may try making a monkey fist in paracord to help draw the knife out of the sheath.

    One thing that's nice is there is absolutely no blade play at all, side to side or up and down, just one solid fixed blade knife ;)
