being that its a knife that you 'wear' like a ring, the special feature is you cant drop it very easily. So I suppose you have to stuff your fingers in there to get a good grip (mines on order, dont have it yet) but there is a video clip of someone drawing from a belt holster that looks very smooth. Ill see if I can find the link...
one link here:
it doesnt show him draw forward but it looks like from this picture that once its past the first knuckle, its ready to go
I think I remember a better video though, Ill keep looking.
heres a good video showing it:
looks pretty smooth...

It does not have to be "over the knuckle". In a hasty-draw, the capsule is caught before the knuckle, in a reflexive grasp. Thumb pressure (also reflexive) pushes the edge of the capsule against the knuckles. In this stage, upper-cuts and centerline gouge-slashes are the primary attacks, basically what you would go with in the FUT anyway. Given a bit of time and space, it is easily indexed to a "more secure" (relatively speaking) traditional punch-knife grip.

I have carried my HAKs in many different positions, from inside my pocket, inside a cargo pocket, behind me belt on the small of my back, and on backpacks. It becomes very natural for your fingers to slip all the way down to your knuckles without even having a thought about it. It may take a few minutes of tryinig to figure out the best position for your hand to be in, but I have never had an issue with the capsule not feeling secure on my fingers. Just my experience.

I have a question for those of you that have held a few of these--Im ordering mine with the 'cordwrap' on the handle. Does this affect the fit if you later decide to remove the wrap?
Something on the site seems to suggest that there may be a slight difference if you change it.

It will be looser. This is very subjective, though. I have comparatively large knuckles and thin fingers. If you have "thicker" fingers, I doubt you'll notice much.

Thanks for the intel, guys!
I'll try the video link a little later. Still only have dial up here in the sticks, so I'll click and go do something for about 20 minutes.
