IMHO, this picture is the best illustration of what this design is all about. At least for my uses.
And it does it excellently.

I don't like the bit larger blade length, plus the ricasso area on the Delica (this knife) is big enough that it acts like a choil. I've not cut myself this way yet.

It's a more slippery handle, not quite as hand friendly, and there is no large kicker area (ricasso) to act a bit like a choil. I like this better than a choil. For me, choils get hung up when working. I don't know why. Cento 4 is nice, but not as tough as the proto feels.

It has thumb jimping, which is good. I don't think spine jimping would be of any use. Also, it's square, but not rough at all. It would just add extra cost. Easy to do yourself, I might add.

I cut banding lickety split, the usual cardboard... Did I mention the blade on this circles the inside of jars, etc. to remove safety seals quite nicely? I also whittled wood because that's what I do. Very nice. It would be a great EDC as well as work knife. I don't know what more too say or add. Great apple cutter upper.
- best wishes, Jazz.
