+Khan Vang hi, many thanks for your comment, it certainly looks the part as far as the blade is concerned. The handle seems to be very similar to the f9 which I have. I know this handle has split opinion about schrades. Personally I have very large paws. I struggle to get into XL size mechanix! So it suits me just fine. I have seen some pictures of micarta scales for the f37 and oi have to say they looked amazing. I'll keep scouting around until I find one. Determination will keep me going. Lol.
