      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.

      • The knife gets an A-. It has a better than expected size and a solid blade and handle design. The finger ring is interesting. I like the hooked exterior shape of the ring, but the inside edge of the ring needs a bevel, especially since it is the sold deployment method from the sheath. The sheath is a problem. The design works only with too load pockets like jeans. Side open pockets like most other pants styles have will not retain the sheath. I assume by the name and design that this is supposed to replace an EDC folder, but it occupies 100% of the pocket, which even the biggest folders do not. The scales are what they are. I hope that the G10 replacements will be available soon.
