Also is it the same with all the Blades - i.e K Blade, gold/black, Black Blades?

So, has anyone got really 'surgical' on this?

Wait a minute... klem! I think you may know?...
Not sure about the inside, but those fibers along the handle can sure give you some nasty splinters! If you ever need to replace the grip, DO NOT handle it with bare hands. Put on a golf glove or learn the hard way like I did! Those nastly little pieces along the handle splinter off and will get into your skin very easily.
to see what I'm up to lately:
