In extreme close-quarter encounters where a suspect is attempting to take an officer's handgun, or an officer cannot access his handgun, the TDI knife is available as a "last option" knife. When worn on the pant belt the entire unit - knife and sheath - is well concealed. Designed by John Benner, founder and owner of Tactical Defense Institute. A partially serrated edge makes cutting looped and synthetic materials a breeze. Featuring coyote brown handle scales and sheath and reversible black metal belt clip.
Hard plastic sheath and reversible black metal belt clip (1480CLIP) included. Fits maximum belt height of 1.75", width of 1.25" and thickness of 0.25".

This knife is awesome! It was already RAZOR sharp when I bought it, able to slice through beer cans with the greatest of ease. The clip-sheath is really cool, the knife locks into place and stays there pretty well, but can be pulled out if you need it. Has a nice weight to it, and fits really well in your hand. I would give this knife more stars If I could! You should definitely pick one up today.
Great knife, holds well to the side. hides well with just a tee shirt, when ccw / pistol can't be carried. I bought second one with a full blade.
I've had this Knife for nearly a year, I can honestly say this is one of the best knives I have ever owned. I'm a big fan of anything tan or in that neighborhood, so naturally I was attracted to this Knife, but to add to that it's a fantastic design, and a trustworthy company that produces. I use this Knife for E.D.C and it has and will never let me down. I suggest any Knife nut, law enforcement personnel, military personnel, or a self defense person to buy this Knife. Five out of five.
Purchase the small TDI received it Sunday open it up I took it out and open a can of Copenhagen by just cutting the the paper off and the black coating chipped the tip to about 1/8 of an inch down the blade overall I mean that's the only bad thing I can say extremely Sharp Carrie's great but the paint on the blade for the price you would expect it to to be a little better but would highly recommend to all all friends that are in law enforcement military and even just for hunting
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.
