The EK-51 has a pretty small handle, so it's definitely not for everyone and every use.

I forgot to mention these till you mentioned SMKW.


I haven't seen one in person(didn’t know they existed when i was at SMKW last June), but they seem to get good reviews and are priced similar to Moras. Might be worth a look for your son the next time you are in SMKW.
