What I carry when I can't!
I usually don't carry a knife with me as backup, but at the times that I do I have a S&W bullseye [a really nifty knife]. Still as a student at a major university I am unable to carry any of the time I'm on school property.
This makes me uncomfortable.
I found a solution;
This lil S&W I found today. It's only a few inches long [within legal standard for carrying w/o a ccw or in pistol free zones] but still razor sharp. I love the titanium camo on the whole thing too! Now of course I still couldn't get away with this baby on an airplane, but at least I still have something on those few occasions I'm not strapped.
Anyone else have this knife?

a good surefire with the toothed bezel would make a good blinding weapon,as well as for strikes.

I had one. I think I gave it away. Mine was black.
Anyone else have this knife?
When Im in a place where I cant carry a handgun. I pack a kuboton, a waved Delica, and a Surefire.

I always have at least 2 knives on me, leatherman and the other varies, sometimes I have as many as 5 knives, depends on what I'm doing. If I can't carry knives or gun, I have my cane( I'm old enough now that it doesn't look out of place) I can carry it onto airplanes and into courtrooms.

I have the same S&W in black with a Tanto blade, also mine is an automatic. I have since upgraded to a Benchmade auto because I got tired of sharpening the S&W every other day. The safety on the S&W is plastic and does not work well, had a couple near misses with the jewels when it opened in my pocket. The Benchmade has a positive metal safety that locks the auto mechanism while closed or open. I paid $50.00 for the S&W new, it now rests in my tool box. I absolutely love the BM, only had to sharpen once in the 3 months I've owned it.

Not my cup of tea, S&W folders. On only time I can not carry is in the county court house, I carry a folder which can not enter the court house but they will place it in a locked area till I exit. My firearms remain in my car's safe which is bolted to 1/4 aluminum plate until I exit the court house.

Im so jealous. Have fun with your retirement, you earned it!!
I have my cane( I'm old enough now that it doesn't look out of place)
I honestly cant wait till Im older! I plan on having a house exactly 500ft (or whatever the legal shooting distance of a residence is) from my neighbor. At 6:30a.m. I will practice with my firearms, until I tick my neighbors off. Then I will get some breakfast at my local diner. I will pass cars rushing to work, just to slow down 5-10mph under what they were originally driving. I will know exactly what to complain about before I even order my usual breakfast. I have around 30 years to plan the rest of my retirement .

If you buy a knife in that price range and don't start digging bullets out of trees with it..or use it as a prybar...& just pack it for a possible future event to save yer sweet hide it sure will serve you just fine.
I've handled only one of the S&W SWAT line knives & that particular one was a bit over~tight.
It was workable though.

This is a bit off topic, but I thought it fits here.
As I have said before, in my line of work, I regularly have to go to places where I am required by law to disarm, AKA hospitals, government buildings, etc. Among my favorite backups are, an innocuous looking utility knife with disposable blades, that looks like a pocket knife. It wouldnt make a very good stabbing weapon, but is sharp and can be deployed very rapidly. I also have a short, flat, prybar I used on almost every job. I use it to lift, pry,as a doorstop while I am packing things in and out, of an area, and I keep one end sharp so I can use it as a chisel, etc. If need be, it would make a nasty close quarters weapon.
Granted, I would much rather have a firearm and a better knife, but when that is not legal I consider this a good legal compromise. Since both are tools, I have a legitimate reason to have them with me at work, and I need them both quite regularly in the course of my day. I have infact been cleared, to work on equipment in secure locations, on many occasions without so much as a second glance from security at them. They are after all only tools.
I don't want to hijack the thread, but it would be interesting what others fall back on when the law prohibits carry.
Maybe I need to start another legal/improvised weapon thread. LOL!

Actually I have thought about slightly sharpening a key or two for that very purpose, but like many things I havent gotten around to it.
I have three "dud" keys with the plastic butt, with lightly filed tips......

Get yourself a nice steel pen from a discount store. It makes a very good thrusting weapon, and no security guard is going to take it away from you. I got one as a promotional item from a salesmen, and it has been with me for about three years. I haven't stabbed anyone with it, but it would make a decent weapon in a pinch, I think.
