Glad I recieved this as a gift because I would not buy it with my own money. It does feel good in the hand, open easily and is good for self defense. Especially if you have experience with a karambit. But it's a little heavy for everyday carry. The clip is decent. The liner lock is garbage. Pain in the ass to close one handed. If you put pressure on the spine or edge of the blade it'll give a little. Would not trust this knife for hard work. Overpriced for having the word "CHINA" on the blade.
So i agree with the other reviewer but since i am in the business of taking items and making them for my taste , i turned this in to titanium frame lock and now it is what its intended design was . A great back-up for emergency situatiions. just change out the rear slab and that it...well that and having access to titanium ..lol
Only a 33-year veteran police Lieutenant could truly understand what makes a knife effective for close-quarters defense. While serving as President and Chief Instructor of Tactical Defense Institute, John Benner saw time and time again what he already believed to be true from first-hand experience: In a conflict, fine motor skills deteriorate and gross motor skills are most effective for fending off assailants. Benner then set out to design a low-profile fixed blade knife for law enforcement, military and security personnel that could be drawn quickly and efficiently in times of duress. After more than a year of prototype samples and in-field testing, the Benner-approved TDI knife was put into production. The same basic principles that founded that first knife were incorporated into all future TDI models, which now complete an expansive line of tactical knives.
