      • I received this knife from Ka-Bar as an exchange for another knife in the TDI line up that didn't "cut it." The knife is an Ohio designed, U.S. made, full-tang tanto. It is carried on the off hand side primarily as a handgun retention aid and extreme close quarters "last ditch" backup weapon. The ergonomics of the knife are excellent. It's beefy design instills confidence. The retention device is great - the only down side to that is you must take a forward grip on the knife drawing from the sheath, as if you acquire a reverse grip, you can't hit the release button. This knife would easily be a "five star" rating, but the clip for the sheath is weak and easily let's go. I replaced it with a Tech Lock and now have an almost "perfect" set up. Kudos to Ka-Bar, TDI and Rick Hinderer for making an excellent American-built product.
