    Hey 2edges you could retire and I could buy you some flowered shirts lol, It really is very very sad that the people that protect us are not willing to protect themselves, I am not knocking my brothers/sisters of the badge but c'mon the "thug nasties" are putting in the time to learn how to hurt you why not give up a weekend of grab@$$ to advance your training, I have not asked but I will take a guess that those of us on here who carry knives carry more than one, i know LEOs in my area that don't carry a knife at all, in fact they have gun, cuffs, and radio, very disturbing.

Also I don't know your age Hopyard but when my dad was my age (mid 20s) things were way different than they are now, he is 69 now, so we are talking 60s when cops gave you rides home and let you slide on some stuff that you get hammered for today.
    Same age as your dad almost. Guess what, some things were different but the cops still made arrests---after bashing you with their baton for being naughty. And pre-Miranda, they'd get a confession.

    We from rural PA, and I'm guessing that could be why things were the way they were, but I have heard stories about the good ol stick, or flashlight or whatever was handy, video cameras and national exposure of "police brutality" wasn't so commonplace either, right?

    Ouch on those trainer prices.

    And I have seen that style of trainer, I guess for some reason I was thinking of a folder with a rubber type blade. Something you can actually "poke" people with. since I tend to lean towards poking over slashing.

    Cutlery Shoppe has all of the Spydercos at very reasonable prices. About 1/2 MSRP. A few of the links I posted are from Spyderco.com just because it was easier to find what I was looking for quickly.

    You may be able to find the Benchmades at better prices, I just posted the first link I found that had photos of them.

    Emerson Knives are more expensive than Spyderco or Benchmade.

    I could be wrong, but I don't think rubber bladed folders are possible.
    You can poke people with the metal bladed drones. I've had plenty of bruises to prove it.

    True, but I encourage the use of protective gear. I hope that no one even thinks about edged weapons training without using at least a mouth guard and eye protection.

    Jim Grover AKA Kelly McCann is right on it.

    I've recently just started carry two knives (Spyderco Delicas). I also bought a couple of Delica trainers. I have no training, but am signed up for Defensive Folding Knife and Defensive Folding Knife II this weekend. I signed up for these classes a couple of months ago and I'm super excited to be taking them.

    With respect to street fighting experience:

    When I was a freshman in high school I got into a fight with the school wrestling champ (a senior) and sent him to the hospital. I was a brown belt and somehow my instructor found out about the incident. When I came to class a couple of days later, he told me I had the choice of being banned from his school forever, or accepting Mother Love & a 3-month suspension. I chose Mother Love and the suspension. He set up a special session for the whole school, and on the appointed day he brought me up in front of the whole school, had me get into the push-up position, and then gave me 10 strikes with his bamboo cane. Essentially, he caned me. I dropped to the floor after the 4th strike and was crying in pain and humiliation for the last 6 strikes. Then my instructor told me and the whole school "Do not ever misuse the art I have given you." Then, still in front of everyone, he told me to leave and not return for 3 months.

    That was over 30 years ago. Since then I have been in several situations that could have turned into fights. I've always been able to either de-escalate or get away from the situation.
    A traffic ticket is formal recognition of a lapse in situational awareness.
