    It is an optical illusion, no back spacers on the -1 models. Different design handles than the standard grip which has partial liners inside a clamshell set of plastic handles that join together along the back of the handle.

    The -1 uses a set of Blue anodized full liners with G10 scales on top. This has the result of making the handle feel much more solid (particularly on full size grip - no more wierd clack clack), and knife a bit heavier than the normal model.


    In the picture here, what appears to be back spacer it actually the inside on the liners...

    Thanks, Tony! :D The Cold Steel AD-10 is definitely in the running for 'zombie-stopper' too. These both belong in the 'burly-class' of folders, to be sure.

    The two lower blades are running neck-and-neck for my favorite 'tank-folder'. I guess, I'll get a 4 Max and break-the-tie.
