Same results with natural grip and wet hand and knife. This is water, I don't know about sweat, but I do know that post is catching hell tonight! This blade has a really good G10 handle. I really kind of half expected a little slippage, thank God(!) it did't.
As you might know, my grip is somewhat comprimised by an injury to my index finger,(last Labor Day I nearly severed it in a knife accident. It needs more surgery to get more function, the problem is I cannot close the finger fully). Such is life! You can see how importante a good guard is for me.
I hope this helps!
If it's stupid but works, then it isn't stupid.
