The grip...what more is there to say?

The tanto shape is definitely an interesting permutation, I find it very useful for opening boxes and breaking them down.

The handles are rather thick, and it's worth noting the tactile feedback of the knife is...distinctive...to say the least. Many say it feels cheap, and I tend to agree. However they are decently grippy (what would the name be if it weren't) and plenty strong. Decent enough for a hard use folder anyway.
