I'm thinking of getting a tactical knife to come along with me alongside my gun, and was wondering how many of us do this regularly for defensive purposes? Feel free to elaborate.....

I have a number of knives and I always carry one, usually my Kershaw Ken Onion Leek or my Spyderco Endura. Another "sometimes carry" of mine is my KaBar TDI.

Yes, Spyderco Endura..
Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
Yes.....kind of. I carry a Spyderco Delica, but although it could certainly fill a self defense role, it's primary purpose is as a daily utility knife, not a single purpose defensive weapon. Let's face it, a knife is a deadly weapon, just as a gun is. If I need to respond to a situation with deadly force, it's gonna be with a gun, not with a knife.
"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in a grey twilight that knows not victory nor defeat."
Can't carry a gun at work. Darn interstate commerce laws! So it's a knife, pepper spray, and light for me. Don't think I have been without a knife since 10 th grade. Used to loan mine to teachers and other kids to sharpen pencils. Ah, the good old days, when common sense prevailed.
Gun, mag, flashlight, keys, knife, phone, and wallet. Every day, and the knife is a Spyderco Endura ZDP. Highly recommend Spyderco, customer service is great, and one hellouva knife.
Better to die on your feet, than to live on your knees.
Yes. Right now it's a Benchmade Griptilian with modified sheepsfoot blade.
It's for utility purpose and not for a defensive tool. Yes, in a last ditch effort I would go to it for defense, but I would rather use almost anything else than a blade for defense if I can avoid it.

Yes, usually 2 knives, swiss army camper model, a tool I seem to find a use for every day, and Harley-Davidson branded folder that was a gift. Nice knife even disreguarding the HD hype.
How a politician stands on the Second Amendment tells you how he or she views you as an individual; as a trustworthy & productive citizen, or as part of an unruly crowd that needs to be lorded over, controlled, supervised and taken care of.
Knife laws are confusing. From city to city, state to state requirements vary. Many seem vague. So for me tactical knives are out. I carry a pen knife.
The other thing is as you become a seasoned citizen, the knife fight skills are diminished. Where once we were trained to use a knife, those techniques have long gone in my case.
These days the skills run to chain saw, brush hook, and brush cutter. Those are hard to conceal, but I am pretty sure any man with a brush hook would win most fights. I keep my brush hook wicked sharp. I can go through a three inch sprout with one blow. COUNCIL TOOL 1642 DITCH BANK BLADE 40" HICKORY HANDLE
This has me thinking. Perhaps the brush hook manual of arms might not be a bad thing to work on. Thrust and parry. Slash and hook. The sprouts had better look out tomorrow. It is great therapy. I can't count the number of times some poor sprout has died as a surrogate for a politician.
A knife is part of my daily wear. I carry a knife like a wallet, I never leave home without one. Being a HVAC contractor I use a knife almost on a hourly basis.
I only have three carry knives, two are assisted opening, A GATCO Timberline and Kershaw Blur and the third is a Cold Steel "neck knife" which I love, you just have to be careful putting it back in the sheath, otherwise you'll give yourself a Tracheotomy
HAPPY NEW YEAR
