    I used to carry a Spyderco Matriarch, and will soon be carrying it's big brother, the Civilian. For firearms retention and last line of defence for security/LE professionals, it's a great slashing tool, and can also be used for First Aid (removal of clothing is a breeze).

    For a mixed approach, eg secondary SD and utility, a Spyderco Waved Delica is a good choice.

    Another option for exclusive SD, one I personally haven't tried yet, is the Spyderco P'Kal, designed for Pikal/Reverse Edge Methodology. It's got a removable wave and is getting fantastic reviews.

    I shouold note; I'm not a 'sticks to one brand' guy, but the fact is, Spyderco makes good stuff.

    this one's on my "short-list" as well...can't wait to get one.

    If you carry in Condition 3, you have two empty chambers. One in the weapon...the other between your ears.

    My choice

    http://www.coldsteel.com/recon1.html

    I have occasionally carried an Al Mar fixed double edge I've had for a couple of decades. Wiped it off on my pants once and put 1 1/2 inches of the tip into my knee, very shallow, parallel to the skin surface. For self-defense, the Al Mar is the one I would choose, but the Recon1 is light and inconspicuous clipped in a pocket (and more legal, as well).

    A small fixed blade knife hidden on the centerline of the body is your best bet. Now when would it be used? Anywhere within arms reach, grappling, or getting out of a certain hold like a rear naked choke. They are fast and deadly.

    I've gone to carrying a rather large fixed, just because I can. Haven't had a folder in the pockets for years now.

    As to instructors, look to Jimmy Keating, Mike Janich and if you can locate and get into a course of his, I'd highly recommend Ray Dionaldo out of Fla.

    Many of you guys are lucky because you can carry fixed blades of decent length. Here, in Cali., you pretty much can't conceal a fixed blade unless it's 2" or less, maybe 2.5".

    We can carry, concealed, a folder of pretty much any length, though.

    Personally, I usually have 3 knives on me. I carry a HAK on my keychain. It's the simple Utility model (I can't seem to sell it, so I might as well carry it), a Subcom in one pocket (Also use it as a money clip), & some type of folder in the other (Right now it's been a Leek G-10 with S30V steel, but I mght change that).

    I have a Powlkowski/Kasper Companion, but it's too big to carry here. Great knife, though.

    I'm getting a Benchmade Activator (Snody design with 2" blade), we'll see how that works out.

    Knives are kinda like guns, you just can't have one. Fortunately, unless you're buying collectables or VERY high-end knives, they're not as expensive.
