I EDC'd a Spyderco Endura in my strong-hand front pocket for the past 10 years but got intrigued by the TDI a few months ago and have been wearing the small Law Enf model on my weak-hand side with handle facing forward.
It was made and marketed as a specific self defence/firearm retention weapon but I am curious as to how it has worked out as an EDC knife from those of you that actually carry it.
I like the belt clip and can clip in to jogging shorts or sweat pants if I need to and I like that I can draw it with either hand and it is ready to go. It fits real comfortable and I don't know it's there unless I need it. I wear an untucked t-shirt and noone knows it's there unlike a large folder on a pocket clip. I have also appreciated not having another object in my pocket and more than a few times I have had something catch on the Endura clip and send it flying across the floor.
All in all carrying the small TDI has worked out well so yesterday I broke down and got the large version. It is quite a bit larger and more robust blade but it also comes with a quite a bit larger handle and sheath/belt holster at a cost of quite a bit more bulk and wt. I'm going to EDC it for awhile and see if that model works or if I'll go back to the small model.
So how about you? Do any of you carry a TDI? What are your thoughts on it? How do you carry it and how has it worked for you?
(I also need to add, some of the reviews I've read say that it is awkward and doesn't make a good general-use knife. I guess I haven't found that to be the case at all once I used it for awhile and got used to it) So what are your thoughts? Have you found it to be a convenient and usefull EDC knife?
