I was wondering what the board's opinion was on Smith and Wesson knives for defense. I have a S&W S.W.A.T. that I carry some (probably not legal but anyway) that I really like but I don't know much about what is considered a good defensive knife. This one has a long enough handle I can use it as a striking weapon (open or closed) plus the blade is thick enough it shouldn't break. It's a manual opener but with no spring I can open it with a flick of the wrist.
