    This is not meant to be a snide remark but, if you dislike knives why not look for a blunt weapon. I personally carry one on my key chain. It works well, is fast and is legal were I am. The biggest issue I see is the fact that you do not like having something in your pocket. So perhaps some type of force multiplier that clips onto your pocket.

    Important considerations for a fighting folder:

    1) length of blade. Reach matters

    2) security of locking mechanism

    Why not get a Leatherman Tool?

    I carry a Skeletool regular one and it has a smaller blade and is easy to get to, back pocket next to wallet (Sneaky sneaky) hell I goto campuses (work for a district) and no one worries much about it. I use it to build and disassemble stuff but its good to know you have that blade as a "Reserve" I guess, usually carry that and whatever knife I feel like carrying that month or while (Right now its that lockback)

    I'm with Retsupt99, the Kershaw Assisted Opener is the way to go.
    At the shot show a Kershaw saleswoman told me they are discontinuing the assisted openers. Sad, they are great for warehouse work and on the streets.

    I've never had any printing problems, even carrying my P3AT on one.
    But then, I don't wear tight T-shirts, so YEMV.

    I have always liked knives. I like how they look feel in my hand sharpening them using them. Whether it is slicing a tomatoe or defending myself. There is just something special about how a well made well sharpened knife slices. To be honest in my younger days they were my weapon of choice. They are a bit more personal and IMO just as deadly as a gun.

    But if you hate knives it is not likely that you will invest the time and effort into using one well. Have you considered a cane? They are a much under rated weapon that you can carry anywhere. Are never questioned and make a brutal self defense weapon. Much easier to learn to use effectively.

    There are some good recommendations at I need a knife recommendation please

    I have carried a Kershaw OutLaw folder for over 12 years as my do everything edged tool. Decent blade and I really like its no slip grip

    I also carry a

    Chad Banos Boker SubCom $24.00 a money clip. Do not discount this diminutive blade it has an excellent design that provides an extraordinary grip. No one will be taking this knife out your hand and you will have total control. I put a convex edge on mine. Sharp as a scalpel it will split a roast in two with a flick of the wrist. Mercop has a good tutorial on it on his SubClaw page

    For a fixed blade I carry either either a BK 11 for $36.61or a

    or a Chad Banos MPT from Boker for $56.97

    You should be able to open it easily with one support-side hand.
    If some BG is fighting for your firearm then you need to be able to make bloody meat (in a big hurry) while keeping possession of your SD firearm.

    The SOG FLASH II assisted opener is unobtrusive, lightweight, & not very expensive and is razor sharp as supplied by SOG.
    You might want to consider gluing the little safety catch in the OFF SAFE position.

    ^^^ Used to have the same thing until I lost it in the water cutting a guys line. The boat owner was appreciative and went to West Marine to get a replacement. Sadly they didn't have any SOG's (or he was to cheap) and got my a Gerber clone. They're a nice versatile knife. I use it for cutting boat lines, opening lids, screwdriver, etc. etc. Couldn't imagine not having a knife on me.

    I have seen few people that are very good deploying a folder under stress from their reaction side. The only knife that fills this role for me is the Emerson Karambit worn reaction side in reverse grip.- George
