Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! So I've seen where people want to see a SCABS in Op 2 Weeks. Frankly this makes me wonder, why would anyone want a SCABS over a CABS? Why would someone actually want that small little choil? I often find myself looking at knives like the GW and AD and dreaming of how great they'd be if they didn't have that danged little choil. On a small knife, I often am using the part of the blade that is closest to the ricaso. The way the talon hole is in combination with the small choil on these blades, I find my hand is simply too far from the part of the blade I often use on a little knife. Plus, I find that whatever I'm cutting often gets hung-up in the choil. For me, I think any knife under 5" or so shouldn't have a choil at all, and any knife over 5", if it has a choil, it should be big enough to get a finger in there. For example, I use and love the choil on the RMD and TG. BUT, i realize, I'm not the only guy knife makers have to sell to, so I'm curious, how many people actually like that little choil on knives like the SCABS, AD and GW? and if you like it why? What do you like about it? For me, that danged little choil makes the knife unusable/unbuyable. If it's a thing where it's cheaper to produce with the small choil, I'd happily pay more to get these knives without it. Am I alone?
