The Newest Addition To My Self-Defense Family
This is a discussion on The Newest Addition To My Self-Defense Family within the Defensive Knives & Other Weapons forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; 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 ...

Ahh, the TDI knife. Very nice choice.
I had one of the first productions given to me by the designer. It has been a constant companion on the job since.
BTW, those sure are purty nails. Does JD load your mags for you?

LOL.. NOPE! I pay good money for these nails and I tell them to make them EXTRA tough because I don't baby my hands just because my nails are pretty. It all started when I started working at my last gun-shop job. My nails kept breaking and BADLY and my fingers were bleeding. I went and told the nail people to beef them up and make them as strong as possible. They put some kind of gel stuff over them that has made them so stinking tough that they could probably stop bullets.

Anyway, do you know where I might find any other sheathes for the TDI?
I looked on Ka-Bar's website and they only have one other sheath (that I found) and it was a clip on one. I'd like to see what else was available.

I know others have made sheaths for them, I've seen 'em. What kind would you like to have? I'll ask around, I have lots of sources...

The only one I have seen is the one on this link:http://www.findesigns.net/sheath.html
I carry this knife everywhere and I love it!

Dang Lima... you're startin' to scare me!
Seriously, I wish I could get my bride to consider some form of self defense. But after 35 years of trying, I just look out for her as much as I can!

I was pretty sure I was getting a good knife as the wife of a former Marine Ka-Bars are pretty much the most talked/bragged about knives.
I trusted the name, so pretty much trusted I was getting a good knife. Good to hear my instincts (and the reputation of the company) led me right.
Either way this is my first fixed blade knife.
I'm still figuring out where to carry it (so far I've settled on it being weak side) but I'm sure that will come with time and listening to good advice.
As far as scaring my boss is concerned... HAHA!! I hope I do scare him (just a little bit). If he wants to take my gun away from me he shouldn't be surprised when I come to work packing as many knives as my pockets and belt can carry. I won't be defenseless.
JD just confided in me that he was waiting for me to pick out my own fixed-bladed knife and he didn't say anything because he was waiting to see if I would ever pick up on the need for a better defensive knife and wanted to see if in my "defensive progression" I would come to the conclusion of a better knife all on my own.
He said he was very proud that I did and then picked out a pretty darned good knife to boot.
That makes me feel good.
I like the sheath in that link.. thanks for pointing it out to me. I'll have to look into getting one of those.
Seeing as how I'm pretty new to this knife (4 hours new to be exact), the kind of sheaths I was interested in were something like the link provided, maybe something with a clip instead of belt loops so that it could go on and off easier (as this one is pretty hard to get onto my belt). I'm not really thinking of one particular thing, I'm just looking at all options (ankle, waist, leather, kydex, whatever) and seeing what's out there that will make carrying it consistently comfortable and doable, especially if my gun is prohibited.
I almost joined the military a couple of years ago. It will probably be something I always wished I had done but there are MANY reasons why it will be something I will probably never do (including some health issues). I am a proud supporter of our military, however, and and even prouder wife of a former Marine and the sister of a sailor. I'll always have that.

Addressing the knife itself, I have one of these with the ankle holster but have not carried it yet though because my backup handgun is ankle carry which leaves no room for the knife
