I don\'t know, but it really doesn\'t matter to me, since I don\'t carry the thing. I carry my knives in the 1-2 o\'clock position clipped to my waistband, and I have been able to access them in a bear hug, although it was incredibly awkward, fumbling and slow. In real life, all the flailing about would make it a lot harder. It was part of a training scenario where a 6'260 lb. guy put me in the hug. I was able to access my ankle gun and shoot him in the thigh (not for real, of course).It looks cool. Do you think that you could open it in an awkward stance, position, or while moving? Could you access it while being bear-hugged? From the video clip, it looks like you might be able to, but I couldn\'t tell for sure.
When I first bought that knife, the opening was very stiff, and the blade is held by a rivet instead of a screw I could loosen. I gently tapped out inside the handle so it would open more freely, so yes, it would be considered a gravity knife. It\'s got a thumb stud, but I doubt that would fool anybody.That being said, would this knife be classified the same as a butterfly knife?
A cold steel dealer? Do you give discounts to defensivecarry.com members? That would be nice as they are the only knives i buy. I have a peacekeeper II, Pro Lite Tanto and kobun. I was looking for a smaller fixed blade for retention.Originally posted by Jacob Lee
The triple action is a an interesting knife, and I practice with it on occasion ( I\'m a dealer for Cold Steel). It does indeed have a certain \"cool \" factor when opening and closing. Would agree with Betty though in that it is not the most practical knife to carry for defense. (There is a single edge version that may be slightly safer to open as well.)
Jacob Lee said:Sure, I'd be willing to do that. The only thing I'm not sure of is the shipping to various places, but let me know. I really enjoy this forum and the people here seem very genuine and friendly.
Also, need to check with Bumper to make sure It's not against the rules though. Not sure exactly how that works, so I apologize in advance if it's taboo Bumper.
