One that shoots 40+ caliber bullets!!!

:rotflmao:

Yeah, I'm smartelec this morning. I have very little training with a knife. When I did train it was with a K-Bar or a Gerber MK I. Knife designs have progressed a lot in thirty years though.

The one you have on you.

Just my opinion...but if I am having to use a knife for SD then I have made a grave tactical error somewhere along the way!

There is no ONE best knife.
Looks at people's hands. Everyone's hand is different. Fingers will be different girths and lengths. Different grip strength in each person's hand.
All these will give people different feels on particular knifes.

Some things to look for when choosing a knife for yourself.

Handle: You want something you can get solid grip with. This can be finger grooves, textured handles, palm ridges, etc.
If you were to stab, you wouldn't want your hand riding up the blade and slicing your own fingers

Deployment: This can be a thumbhole, stud, blade guards, etc. It's all preference and what you feel comfortable with.
Random examples:

Law: Find out what the laws for knives in your state are. MOST states allow foldable blades under 4".

Some knife manufatures to look at:
Ka-bar
Spyderco
Benchmade
CRKT
Cold Steel

I'm partial to Emerson, Benchmade and SpyderCo. Went to my first edged weapon class little over a month ago and learned a LOT. Way more than I expected. I have an OLD Benchmade AFCK, with liner lock, not the 'new' Axis lock (don't like them).

I agree... many fit the bill and one the fits and feels "right" in your hand is the best. That is, as long as it's a good quality. If you are carrying in the off chance you will need/use for self defense, don't skimp. You will be amazed at how easy a cheap blade can snap on you! I prefer tip down carry for various reasons. And would rather not have an auto or even an assisted opening knife. Not for defense/carry use.

Just my .02


Practice practice practice. Just as with anything else, it should become second nature when pulling and opening.

I got a cold steel push knife and some custom one's. The push knife works with any knowledge you have of boxing or other hand to hand combat. Mean little bugger. Don't think they're legal for carry though so I have no need for it other than the price was right. If your going to use a knife, someone had a post of all the major artories you need to learn. A stab hurts but a stab that makes the blood spurt kills.
