    Never held the smooth grips on a MK9, but I did look through Kahr's entire stock of MK9 smooth grips a while back. If I would have found a set of those that were a bit darker with a reddish tint, I'd have bought 'em. All the MK9 grips looked just about the same, color-wise. I DID find a set of K9 smooth grips that were some of the best looking grips I've ever seen though. I almost bought them even though I don't have a K9. Wish I'd have taken a picture - they were really stunning!

    You can get the checkered and if they are too abrasive, just take some fine sandpaper and knock off the points. Just very little sanding, just the very tips of the points.
    This will still give you a good grip without giving you road rash on your side.
    I often times don't bring the checkering to a full point for this reason, plus it's a bit more durable if you bump up against something, your less likely to knock of the points more than you'd like.

    I have the checkered grips and abrasion is not a problem. They are easier to hold on to and look 100% better than plain.
