What grip do you use on your knife daily ?
I mainly cut boxes and tape, my favorite knife has become the Cold Steel Tuff Lite, which has a 2 inch blade and 4 inch handle.

They got the blade right, but the handle isn't comfy in the grips I use mostly. Which are...

The 1st I use the most and the 2nd pic is what I usually transition to,the 3rd also gets used frequently.

My grip above is the one I use for scoring Kydex/Boltaron/Holstex. I use a saber grip for cutting cardboard. I haven't found much use for pinch grip on this knife yet, except maybe a middle finger and thumb pinch grip with my finger on the spine for picking my teeth.

I like the Tuff Lite because I find it unusually comfortable for a small knife, but your hands are larger than mine.

I use the 3rd grip most often, sometimes the 2nd if I am cutting cardboard and don't want the blade to penetrate far.
