Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! Especially on fixed blades. Depending on what I'm doing my hand just wants to choke up so bad. Especially when I'm just handling and admiring them. I count that as usage/value because I when I am deriving pleasure from them, it counts as using them. Even on some of my folders I want to choke. Some designs are such that I'm not as apt, like the Spyderco delica. Or my Benchmade 705 (wish they still made it). The paramilitary and stretch have such a nice efficient handle, your hand feels good no matter how it's gripped. I just got a buck compadre, which I love and am so glad I got it, but it has no choil and my first instinct is to grab it like it does. I catch myself though. The bark river bravo1 has that ramp which serves as a reminder. My swamp rat bandicoot and howler have a nice comfy one. I haven't been mindful enough to be able to say whether I mostly use it if it's available in actual use. Offhand I would have to say I prefer one. On the other hand my most carried knife is my delica. I need to write a choil haiku. Lol!
