I wouldn't change the hilt configuration of this knife for "any" reason. It's perfect! A squared top, I think, would make the entire package too bulky.
On another note: I'm looking at these photos and it hit me! Have you ever seen red, white and blue spacers look more "at home" in any other combo? Just like the "old yeller", red, white & blue look "killer"!
I think this is the very first knife I have seen, with my bone linen and rwb spacers. I might have made one or two and shipped them out without looking at them, but this one....N-I-C-E!!
Is it just me?
