Great Upgrade

Fit flush. Perfect upgrade to my BK-16. Not only does it improve the grip, knife also looks way better when installed with these micarta scales.

For a BK15

Had a BK 15 Trailing point knife with the standard plastic handles. Didn’t like the slippery feel, so ordered these. I stripped and steel wooled the blade leaving the rough paint on the tang. Then blued the blade and re-sharpened it. After installing these Mircarta handle slabs, it feels like a different/very capable knife. Very secure and non slip grip. The scales fit well and look great. The grip is very secure. Now I have a lite, secure blade for trail hiking and a good slicer for food prep.. Absolutely love the transformation with the Micarta slabs ( resembles a wood grain ) and removing the rough finish paint and bluing the blade. Just remember to keep the blade oiled.

Significant improvement.

Really gives a better feel to the knife, wish they came with micarta. Fits about the same as the grivory, not perfect, but very good. Finish very good as well, but the edges weren't completely rounded. A couple minutes with some fine sandpaper (take precautions - micarta dust is hazardous) fixed that. Price is a bit high for these, but they do improve the knife.
