    The choil makes sense if you examine the knife when closed. Keeps you from cutting your flipper finger, lol

    Hold the knife while it's closed and look where the choil is. The edge could accidentally cut your finger when you went to use the flipper if not for the choil

    Yup, the guys that bought all those no choil M390's have nothing but complains about that. [emoji41]

    Edit: While I was joking about the xm-18, the mp1 is a different story and I stand corrected.

    I haven't seen any complaints about that!?!? That doesn't even make sense Joe. Imo it shouldn't be an issue for those knives. The MP1 the edge sits a lot deeper (closer to the backside of the handle) as you can see in my pic above. Here's my no choil XM the edge never gets even close to the backside of the handle.

    Umm, I was joking [emoji854]. I have owned 6 and currently have 3 no choils, no problem.

    Hadn't even noticed that. I guess there won't be a no choil MP-1.

    OD or Gray on FWF are my favorite stock scale choices.

    I just got the same one, just waiting for the blade to come back from regrinding.
    Also picked up a copper liner and a blue screw/standoff kit.
    Looking forward to this one for sure!
