    I'd buy some. I've brought this up a few times over the years because my head is too big for the "one size fits all" style hats. I'd rather buy a nice fitted hat and sew on the patch anyway.

    I love most choils and use them. If I could legally carry a 4+ inch blade I'd want it to have a choil. With a smaller knife I find a big trade-off between the usefulness of the choil versus the...

    I've gifted at least a dozen to "NKP". I object to the term. Everyone uses knives and the best way to learn to appreciate a fine knife is to use one.
