I am totally with you, especially on getting rid of the choil and lengthen the actual edge:

I understand the need for blunt-tipped blades but I would love to see an Atlantic Salt or Assist that is a bit pointier. I understand that there is the Pacific Salt but how about a "pointy Sheepsfoot" or "pointier wharncliffe" blade?
You mean like this?
It's really simple to do if you have a Dremel. I plan on eventually getting a sheepsfoot Caribbean and doing the same to it.

BUT: I am pretty sure that this is technically not possible as long as the Manix features the (great!) caged ball bearing lock. Its size and location in the handle requires some kind of choil (or a VERY wide handle) as far as I understand.
That being said: I´d gladly take a Manix backlock without a choil...
