          Why don't you tell us a few of the tactical knives you personally have actually used in real situations?

            Been over that already on this forum, try actually reading what people post from time to time.

              Refresh our memories then, and it would be helpful if you could describe some of the actual situations you used them in.

                    I recommend my EDC knife, the Cold Steel Spartan.

                    Although I haven't had to use it in a threatening encounter myself, I have read reviews of the knife online where the reviewer states that it has deescalated the situation rapidly. However, I would never count on this - in my mind, a weapon always escalates the level of violence someone is willing to put forth against you. However you still need to get to your weapon because the enemy may be armed. To be honest I'm a bit confused as to what I think about this myself, but the point is I'm careful and don't flash my blade at the slightest sign of trouble. I carry this and whether I will use it will be decided by my feeling of need then and there.

                    The reason I love the Spartan is the S-curved blade like a small kukri or kopis. It has a very secure grip with a good pommel you could strike with. It's a huge folder, so it's scary yet easy to hide.

                    For another big folder from the same guys, I could recommend you the Rajah II, but I won't.

                    The reason is that after a fair bit of chopping with it, it closed on my hand and cut my fingers. One failure is way too many - I'm glad it wasn't in a life-or-death situation.


                    That's my recommendation. Now, tell me, what are you looking for in a tactical blade? Will you be carrying it every day? Does it need to be concealable? Any laws at your location outlawing certain blades? Just post all you can think of about you and the perfect knife.

                      Nice karambit, how much and who made it? I got a very cheap karambit a few months ago that's actually meant to be a tool knife, from Mora Sweden.

                      It's pretty sweet if you don't need the pinky ring, or if you want a nice blade modify.

                        Jesus h3x...you're damned lucky you didn't amputate your fingers...I had a great deal of faith in CS from watching their "Proof" videos, but you're experience sort of proves that that may have been misplaced trust. Have you tried to contact Cold Steel about your folder failure to see if you could get a refund and a properly functioning knife (though I doubt you'd want to risk your fingers again)...or perhaps inform them for THEIR sake that their product was not up to the standards they profess?

                        Oh and Tanto...dope knives. I love the Karambit...I've been thinking about having a local knife maker maybe make a custom for me based upon a brass replica of a really odd knife I picked up when I was in Delphi, Greece, but I don't know how to approach him about it. Maybe you have a few tips? The delica is cute! Maybe I can finally get my girl to start carrying a good blade (and delica is a classic).

                        As for my .02, Triangle....practical is an interesting term...do you mean something for EDC that is inconspicuous and can be used for multiple tasks, do you mean as far as expense, or do you mean something that is not overly garrish/flashy or gaudy but is designed for tactical purposes?

                          It depends on your intended use of the knife. Is this for self-defense? If so, I would suggest avoiding the "cool" knives that are all decked out for self-defense. Those knives specifically geared toward self-defense, like kerambits increase the likelihood of reflecting negatively on you should you ever have to use it. It could lead to legal ramifications. Now with that said, any defensive use of the knife must be justified. Even a small non-intimidating knife can land a person in jail if they use it when the situation didn't warrant it.

                          Something else to consider, you should abide by the laws in your state and jurisdiction in regards to legal knives. Also, if you travel outside your area or state and carry your knife you need to make sure it's legal there as well.
