Here is the KA-BAR I just got today. It's a nifty little fixed blade on an angled grip. It feels VERY nice and natural in the hand.
Knives are something I have often used and carried though I haven't really "gotten into" them so much.
While folding blades seem to be the "norm" and they have the most versatility and concealability, I think something like this can be great for quick, necessary applications.
Then again, I'm not a knife fighter, I know nothing about knife fighting techniques or whatever.
What I know can be put in a nut shell and it would go something like this... Something happens you don't want to happen.. A gun is either not an option or not available.. pull out knife.. start stabbing and slashing.
I like how solidly I can grip this little bugger. No one is getting it out of my hand without getting cut... REPEATEDLY!
Eventually I would like to take a defensive knife course as well as get some hand-to-hand training..
What do you all think? Do I got myself a nice little edged weapon or what?
