Ok here goes. Issue one. I am newly appointed into a LEO job that I was a deputy of for 3 years. It has been about 4-5 months since I have been out pounding warrants. In this time I have learned a lot about a lot. One thing I have learned about is the importance of good knives and their positioning on the officer. I carry 2 folders and a multi tool everyday. I want a good fixed blade that I can carry for defense.
The next part of my dilema. I work a security job too, unarmed, on construction sites. I man the gate and am solo most of the time. I am not allowed to have a firearm here AT ALL. Also, here comes the kick in the arse. I am not allowed to have a knife with a blade longer than 3 inches.
I know the importance of muscle memory. So I need to find a fixed blade that I can carry at both jobs as a defensive tool that is up to 3 inches and has good real estate for my big paws.
I have considered the TDI but I need more suggestions on knives and where to stash them discreetly.
