I'm sure that we have all heard "Well, that's just icing on the cake". My grandfather used to say this to me all the time. His favorite was "I've got tomorrow off work, going fishing will just be icing on the cake". So what is your icing when it comes to knives? For me it is a knife without half-stops. I will still buy them if they do have half-stops, but the "icing on the cake" is when they are not there. For me the smoothness that comes from a rounded tang is just very enjoyable. No sudden jerk half way through closing my knife. These two have long been favorites for this very reason.
