    Cold Steel Desperado

    Anyone know anything about this knife?

    I was considering it. I think it looks a little more easy on the wrist for thrusting than a standard straight knife and I bet it's a mean slasher, too.

    I've got small hands, and I've heard their handles aren't oversized- designed to be difficult to get out of your hand in a fight.

    Thoughts, folks?

    hooking and jabbing, slashing and stabbing

    I'm leary of anything that doesnt have a hilt and a very sharp blade, rule number 1 about a knife fight is YOU WILL BE CUT, but it shouldn't be your knife that cuts you when you cut someone else. Hand slippage during a knife fight is very common due to sudden stoppage of momnetum when entering flesh in a thrust will cause your hand to slip forward and the design of the Desparado looks as if you could probally loose a digit in a hurry, I'd suggest the Spyderco Civilian aka mean people saw. The Spderco has good grip and is easier to conceal, and is designed to stab while slashing. Hope this helps a little.
