    I’m assuming this is a Ti handle? If that’s the case I’d definitely keep the grooved one. Plain Ti slabs are far too slick to me. As for it looking like a pecker, who cares? Clouds look like things sometimes too.

    Have you seen the “look of surprise” on the knives “Heeter Nation” gobbles up for a grand apiece? Lol

    My wife said she’d pick the plain one, if that helps lol. I voted for the plain one as well. Good luck deciding!

    I like the plain one better. I’m a sucker for plain smooth titanium.

    OP here. Some background info, for anyone who cares:

    Some time in the past (maybe a year or two ago) I bought the grooved version. I wasn't ready to pop its cherry, so it sat in one of my Spydiepacks. Then I watched a review of it, where the reviewer was joking about how everyone said it looked like a penis. From that point forward, I didn't know what to do with it, because it kind of looked like a penis to me at that point, too. (It hadn't occurred to me before watching the video.) So, I wasn't sure whether I'd resell the knife or use it, and it sat there some more. Fast forward in time. I found a plain one for sale online a week ago, and I bought it, thinking that I'd compare the two in front of me and decide once and for all which one I liked better, and I'd sell off the other one. But even when I had both on the table, I still couldn't figure it out, which led to this online poll. The comments seem to indicate that the "penis people" are more vocal, but the polling data so far indicates that people are roughly split on this one, so I'm roughly back to where i started, though maybe not, since I can say with confidence that *not* everyone thinks the grooved one looks like a penis and would therefore choose the smooth one.

    One cannot, hairy David Guetta; only two or more can, so your friend needs to find another friend to join forces.

    I would definitely have to keep the grooved one . Much better grip and just GROOVIER ! :)

    The phallic resemblance is merely a nice..." bonus" ! :p

    So you didn't think it looked like a penis until someone on the YouTubes told you it did? I guess influencers really are a thing these days.

    I didn't think "penis" when I saw the grooved one. Now that it was mentioned, I see the resemblance. That holds true for both versions. I appreciate your explanation of events leading up to this decision moment.

    You really have to want to see a penile likeness to see that in the grooved handle. I wouldn't have even thought it, without the comments.

    Go which ever way the wind blows, adjusting for the penis factor of course. :confused:

    I was naturally drawn to the grooved one. Now that I know it is a phalic symbol, I’m questioning my orientation.

    I'm way old school, so to me "Groovy" = "Awesome".

    Keep the awesome one.

    I always thought phallic was groovy.

    I voted for keeping the grooved. I dislike plain looking handles.

    Reminder: Comment if you like, but I'm only counting votes in the poll, so make sure to vote *in the poll*, if you haven't. (It looks like a dead heat, though.)
