Same. I just don't get the "100% blade choil", it's even more a waste of edge space than a 50/50. This would have been another great all around EDC like the Sliverax, possibly even more popular due to the more mainstream design.bearfacedkiller wrote:I think it looks great but I would be much more interested if it didn't have a choil. Without the choil it would be a must buy for me. With the choil it is a maybe.
welcome!gundamaniac wrote:Personally, I like choils. The way the choil meets the edge means it serves as a sharpening choil and you can really bring that edge angle down when sharpening without accidentally nicking the handle on the stone. It's large enough to double as a finger choil, allowing you to choke up and get your hand right up to the start of the edge if you need to. And the slope of the choil where it meets the blade should be gentle enough that material being cut shouldn't accidentally bind in the choil but rather slide onto the edge if you're drawing the knife back in a pull cut motion.
I do concede that it results in the loss of some cutting edge though. But that's one of the nice things about Spyderco; they offer a wealth of designs and different combinations of features to fit various preferences and needs. The debate over choil preferences continues as it always has, but in the meantime Spyderco has you covered, whatever your preference may be
