Ergonomics have only a very small place in my heart. Let me quantify that. Ergonomics on tactical (Oops) WAR knives, have no place. Here’s why: During high stress, fine motor skills are destroyed. I see all these “knife fighters” looking for blades that feel so great in your hand, you would think it was their cock. Now… lets insert stress… go run a mile at a six minute pace, let me punch you in the face a few times, and finally, Ill kick you in the balls. At this point, the last thing you want is your dick in your hand. You want a chunk of blade that is locked in. Period. Weather its land warfare and your about to have your ass handed to you because you need the ammo in that air drop, or CQB and (bummer) you’ve made the transition to knife… or… your ass is in a jam on the subway…it doesn’t matter. Comfort is not a thought. Rock solid grip is everything. Who gives a fuck about a hot spot on your hand. My 1911 isn’t ergonomic either. It’s a big chunk of death. That’s why it works so well.
