    I like the hideaway knife (hideawayknife.com). Once you put your fingers through the loop it becomes an extension of your hand and you can effortlessly flow from hand techniques (e.g. grasping, grappling) to knife techniques and back.

    That looks pretty cool. Fixed blade though - any legal concerns carrying it?

    Are they available again? I thought the owner was having problems.

    Regarding the Hideaway knife:

    "any legal concerns carrying it?" -- not that I know of. The blade's short enough to pass most state's less than 2-1/2", etc. length law.

    "Are they available again?" -- I don't know. Bought mine a couple of years ago. But I did find a retail website once where they were selling them. Maybe you could search for it and see if they still have some in stock.

    Fixed blades are illegal for carry in NC. I wish they weren't because I would really like a Kabar TDI.

    Thanks, NCB. That was my understanding as well. It is a shame - that hideaway is a great looking blade.

    Biggest piece of advice I have for you is to keep it reeled in a bit. You can easily dump $300-1G on a custom folder that won't do anything better than a sub-$100 internet-priced Spyderco or Benchmade. Training makes the knife work in SD, not how much costs out the door.

    Other than that, hit up as many outdoors and gun shops as you can to get your mitts on as many knives as possible. Find the one that seems to fit your hands and needs best, ignore the lower price tag as production makers really can keep the same quality for lower cost anymore, and find the best one that fits your needs and wants.

    You'll be buying another one within six months anyway...

    Exactly. The best SD knife is the one that you know how to deploy under pressure, and know what to do with once it's deployed.

    For a folder? Chris Reeves Sebenza.

    great knife yes, great self defense knife, i dont see how its any better than any other folder. sure its Ti and S30V, but still an average sized folder without anything really unique as far as SD goes
