Traditional kamisori, by a wide margin.

But I will admit to a fascination with asymmetrical folding kamisoris. They're just such strange beasts, and I love 'em, even when they are difficult to close.

Asymmetrics are (to me, TO ME) the cruciferous vegetables of the SR world. I appreciate them, I believe they are worthy, I find many, even most, of them beautiful, but I only use them because I feel they are part of a balanced diet and they are good for me (boy this is a terrible analogy). Western folding are the pasta, the meatloaf, the roast chicken, the mashed potatoes, the dessert, etc. So much delicious variety and an easy pleasure to eat. I really should have thought this through first.
