I also don't grip the knob on top, my style is more to pull and push the knob like a lever vs others who cup their hand on top of the knob.
I just wish changing the knob wasn't such a big reconstruction job where you have to cut the boot and everything. Then I would buy it, try it, and if I don't like it, reinstall the old one.
here is a simple solution, take yours off the car, try on mine for few and then if you like it, get it. If you don't, no worries. You can put the knob on without the leather section. Would look a little funny, but will do the job with no problem.
