It's the ring. Wrapping the handle is a good idea and I'll give it a shot.

When the index finger is in the ring the knife can no longer be held at a 90 degree angle, its more like 55-60. This makes the standard dagger attack arced as opposed to a direct point to target stab. It's only attack angle that works well is attacking opponents behind you. It's unnatural otherwise for even the most common attacks with daggers because you cannot direct the point to the target without arcing.

Maybe it's just me.
