Sometimes referred to as fluted knobs, lobed knobs with 10 lobes bridge a valuable gap between lobed knobs and knurled knobs by bringing wider grips than a typical knurled knob, while increasing the number of lobes over much wider gaps in knobs with fewer lobes.
They are ideal in setups where a "soft" grip is desired for hand cranking on equipment or workpieces.
