A lot of people carry BUGs. And my knife isn't a weapon, it's a tool. I have ZERO desire to get in a knife fight. If the situation warrants me using a knife against someone, I'll just use a gun instead. If we're down to using deadly force I'm using the one that keeps me as far away from the other guy's pointy thing as possible. I'd call it overkill once you start concealing explosive devices.
