The Stacked Wood Kopa represents a "concession to reality" on Sal's part. His original vision was stabilized stacked leather, to duplicate, to the extent possible, the look of the original K-Bar military fixed blade. That proved impossible, the Kopa scales were just too thin for the material to have reasonable strength. Santa Fe Stoneworks, who are responsible for some of the Kopas, suggested stacked dyed wood as an alternative.
