Knife for Stainless II

I'd like to get a nice pocketknife to kind of match my new Stainless II. Looking for a folding knife with a 2-4" blade and wood grips. I'd like the grips to be reddish to match the rosewood grips on the gun.

Any suggestions?

I have one, it is real and well made. IMO to heavy to carry in your pocket.
Couldn't find a pic of mine thought I had one. May take one tomorrow and throw it up.

Those knifes are real and cool. I have one , was a Christmas present from kids last year. Just look up 1911 knifes. They have real compact 1911 grips.

Most of the knife makers have, or are moving to G-10 material for knife scales on folding knives. Any of the larger knife producers using wood scales will likely be using some the more traditional steels (440 stainless), which is not bad, just not going to hold an edge as long. In this latter group would be Boker, Case, etc. Better knives from Benchmade, Zero Tolerance, etc will be in G-10.

The S35V steel in the 1911 knife is a better quality steel, so the edge should hold up. Seems the issue to adapt to would be the size of knife, but it would certainly match your pistol.
