I only wish he'd make one for the K-01... So it'd match my Q...

Okay yeah, after about 15 seconds with the camera in my hands... the whole rubber door thing is way overblown by every reviewer out there. It's FINE. It's not difficult to open or close in the least.

As the jaguar guy said, you can definitely use young cherry bark to do the curved gripwork. you'll want a high res 3D scan or schematic of the K-01 (with rubber stripped off) to make a fitting mold, and use that to mold and shape the bark.
