    To those of you who have both of these knifes (FRN versions), is there a noticible difference in handle thickness? I have searched everywhere and could not find any data or pictures.
    Thanks!

    I
    I don't have my calipers with me at the moment but from my ancient memory banks I seem to recall that they are about equal thickness.

    Thanks for the insight!

    I just want to get the slimmer one(if possible) for back pocket carry. Thick handles hurt my buttocks.

    Either knife can be carried IWB as well, for another carry option.

    ^^ I really like that IWB option for people who must carry their stuff at their backs.
    Imagine you sit and have a wallet, phone or knife in your backpocket.
    Your spine will form a nice S but sadly that's the wrong way for it so if you do that for a while you'll force your backbone into a scoliosis.
    I don't mind though as I'm an Orthopedic Shoemaker and I'll never run out of business due to people's habits...

    Well, we can't do more than tell the people what they should do, and then offer hour help if they won't.
    For example, soft sports shoes are made for, tadaaa, sports, not for wearing them all day long.
    If you do it anyways, your feet won't get the supprt they need when you stand all day long or walk on hard surfaces. But yeah, it's funny to see that nearly all nurses are smokers, even though they should know better.
    (And yes, that's a qualified opinion as both my mother and my sister are nurses. Just in case someone wants to argue about that...)

    And now back to the sharp topic, Show us your (used) scalpels :p

    For anyone else curious about this in the future, someone on reddit was nice enough to measure!
