    I was browsing through some online dealer's sites today and found a few knives that I just couldn't help but think "why would they make that?" I'm not talking about fantasy, or cheap Chinese made knives. So, just for fun, post the ugliest folders you've seen produced by a reputable manufacturer (production or custom). One in particular that has always struck me as just plain UGLY is the Spyderco Chokwe. I know it is meant to have a traditional design but I think some knives just shouldn't be modernized. ;) Looking forward to seeing what you guys come up with.

    The Chokwe is beautiful. You have to hold one and use it to see the inner beauty;)

    Will, is it actually comfortable in hand? It doesn't look like it at all.

    Haha. I agree on the Surefire folders...you would never catch me carrying or even owning one of those. They seem very expensive for what they are as well (it is Surefire though) ;) .

    It's very comfortable. You wouldn't think so but it is. I really like how the end of the handle flairs out a bit, It keeps your grip right behind the pivot. My only gripe is that there isn't any gimping, I don't want to look like nutnfancy complaining whenever a knife doesn't have gimping but it would have helped on this knife.

    If you ever think about getting one, I could send mine to you to try out before you buy it.

    I'd have to agree on all of those but I have always wanted an E.T just to play around with. Pretty unique opening/closing mech.

    The E.T. is a really cool knife. I used to have one a while ago. Wish I never got rid of it.

    haha yeah the et does have an interesting opening/closing mechanism *watch your fingers! lol*

    regarding the chokwe, ive seen mods done that have made it appear more comfortable/attractive by rounding/grinding the top butt area of the handle.
