The scales look amazing and truly elevate the AD-15. Handling the knife w/ the new scales feels much better than the factory G10 scales. The AD-15 is heavy to begin w/ so the Al keeps the weight in check. It should be noted the the tolerance of the UNCOATED scales are very tight so the hardware would just fit perfectly. I got my scales Cerakoted however and the inside of the pivot hole and handle screw hole were coated as well. This made the holes slightly smaller than the hardware could fit through. I ended up having to hammer the hardware through which was a huge pain. The end result is completely satisfying. If you decide to coat the scales, try to see if they'll leave the inside of the holes uncoated.
Great quality fit and finish. Will buy Inter products again
The aluminum scales I purchased for my Cold Steel AD-15 are absolutely perfect in every way. Buy them - you won't go wrong!
