    I don’t mind jimping done right. Spyderco usually nails it. However, higher on my priority list are things like a comfy handle, an obstacle that prevents your fingers from sliding to the edge, and scale textures that give enough traction (I’m plenty happy with G10 or FRN).

    Yeah, I find I can do without jimping, actually.

    Those appear to be all fixed blades .

    Nothing to open or close and the handle can be as large and ergonomic as needed . Hilts , guards , finger choil / grooves .

    Folders are more prone to needing some jimping , especially more compact , thinner handles .

    One of the knives I've gotten the most use out of in my life is a Buck 110 (received in 1982). Not a jimp in sight. Smooth as a baby's butt. Never had any problem with gripping it. Never even heard of "jimping" for most of my life.

    To each their own. And each to their own needs. :)

    Not a fan of jumping. I have a couple of folders that I either rounded the jumping or completely removed it. However I have found it some what useful when stripping wire.
