Right, and as said: You could not eliminate the choil in this knife anyway, unless you'd somehow redesign the whole CBBL. As it is its dimensions and placemenr in the handle require some choil/ cutout in the blade.
I can see a place in the handle where a stop pin could do the job with a longer edge length blade.

Again, as far as I understand: It is not about stopping the blade! It is just that the CBBL requires so much space in the Manix handle that a blade without choil just would not fit in there fully too. Just the cutout (= choil) makes this possible,
Shining a light through my translucent FRN handles I can see where there is room and where there isn't. I understand it needs some sort of choil, but it does not need a full-length finger choil. You could easily get another 1/4" of blade in there.

I like the Manix 2 design just fine. I don't typically use the finger choil, but if there was sharpened edge there I probably wouldn't be using that part of the edge either.

A knife generally shaped like the Manix 2 but without a choil would be the Tenacious.

The current one would be perfect if it was offered with a full spyder edge. I’m sort of indifferent on Finger choils, if the knife has one I’d like it to be like the military where there’s no point between the 2, unlike the manix and pm2.

At least the LW in BD1N should really get a full SE version...

Hi Metaphoricalsimile,

It's fairly easy to add a sharpening choil, where as it is difficult to remove a sharpening choil. I personally think that sharpening choils cause more problems than solutions.

If you view the finger choil as part of the handle, then the edge does go right up to the handle. The problem is one of perception.

Let me turn this on it's head with this statement:

A Canis with a CBBL would be perfect.

Thoughts?
