I love this knife, and I always have it on me. The ergonomics of it just feel "right" in your hand, while the tanto point and serrated portion of it make it quite useful for self-defense purposes as well as a practical everyday tool. My only grievance with this product would be that the coating doesn't hold up very well with constant use, generally around the point and non-serrated edge. But I didn't pick this up for it to win beauty contests... this thing is a workhorse, and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a defensive knife. Solid construction, comfortable to use, and it holds an edge quite well.
bought this knife back in 2008, before it came serrated. I have carried this knife through 2 war zones. i have used it both Practically and tactically. best fighting knife i have ever owned. best carry knife i have ever owned. to use this blade tactically requires dedicated training with bent bade. but the angle gives great strength in thrusting and turning. i also have developed my throwing skills with this knife. could not be more satisfied. although the sheath over the years has become loose, and the blade finish has worn. it has lasted. if KA-bar still offered a non serrated version i would purchase again. unfortunately i prefer the straight blade. fantastic product. I still carry it to this day.
I bought this knife for my boyfriend in the military. He let me use the knife and I absolutely love it!! The bent blade is tricky to use but I love this knife. Its durable and perfect for self defense. I can't wait until I get the chance to really use it if you know what I mean. My boyfriend says that it has saved his life in combat but I'm excited to put my own blood stains on it.
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.
