    Default Comparing Gang unit and DMaX knives?

    Out of curiosity, I'm wondering what thoughts are comparing the use of the "Gang Unit" knife and the DMaX knife (based on karambit).

    One is a specialized design that borders on a fantasy knife. The other is made for killing and I could hand it to a 12 year old and with 5 minutes of instruction they would understand the concept behind its employment. Just sayin'...

    Pretty much summed up perfectly.

    Can you define what you mean by fantasy knife?

    Simply put, the Karambit is not a killing blade. It was originally a woman's work knife not a "super secret ninja killyouinasinglestroke" blade. The cultures that conquered the world with their blade skills used simple, straightforward designs. The Gladius is an example of this
    A man can be right all the time. In which case he can do so, all by himself.

    Huh...That is the exact opposite of what I've been lead to believe.

    What about limb destruction and pressure point control?

    The wharncliffe blade will cut more tissue than any other blade design of the same length, and if you are targeting highly specific areas of anatomy with your blade, that same design will destroy more tissue than a ninjakillermagicfleshshreder from Indonesia.

    Check out Michael Janich's porkman demos and then get off the couch and train. You will find that a lot of Internet hyberbole is better used as fertilizer than accurate info.

    How would you use the Gang Unit in terms of concealed deployment? Would neck knife style work?

    I carry mine at 11:00. Neck carry is a way, but I find it moves around too much.

    Not to mention, lead time on having Gang Unit on your belt is about 5 days, not 6 to 8 weeks!
