Recommendation: Defensive blade: Cold Steel Ti - Lite vs... ????
Greetings those who know more on this subject than I do. Which is probably a lot of you.
First off. I'm not a knife person. Not that I have anything against knives, I don't. I am just not overly knowledgeable on the many different brands and offerings out there.
I put the Ti Lite in the title because I saw an interesting video and the person explained that they preferred fixed blades over folders. Of which I agree. But did have one folder in the rotation due to the quick release of the blade. In the video they illustrated a quick pull from the pants pocket where the knife caught on the edge of the pocket and deployed the blade as it was coming out. No thumb knob, no flick of the wrist, just a simple snag on the pocket as it came out.
I like that.
There isn't much that I don't like about the Ti Lite other than it's a dagger design which can limit some function as a EDC knife.
So I'm hoping some on here will have some input and can suggest some competition to this knife.
I want to reiterate that my primary interest in this particular knife is for defensive purposes. Thus, the quick and easy deployment. I intend to carry it on my left side, being that I keep my pistol on the right side. And considering that I'm far less coordinated with my left hand, I'm looking for quick/ease of deployment. I do have other knifes that I can keep in my right pocket for cutting zip ties, and opening up packages and other mundane chores of EDC. But if there is a knife out there that has this same feature, but is also better suited for regular EDC chores, then I'm all ears.
Thanks in advance for sharing your knowledge.
