    It's so easy to incorporate what you already know with this little tool, I think you'll love it. It's very intuitive.

    Ring forward. Access with your index finger and pull straight up. That's how I demo it in the video. If you pull forward, it doesn't draw cleanly, so pull straight up.

    That gives you a point down grip.

    Ring facing backwards. Access with your pinky, pull up and slightly to the rear.

    This drawing method isn't quite as clean or robust, but maybe some of you will like it better. The benefit of this drawing method is that it gives you point forward.

    Awesome, and good information. I just ordered one along with a Suarez firing pin.

    Brent,

    Thank you for the OUTSTANDING video and for bringing this product to life. This brief views represents at least a full day course to me - that we all got for free. You really demonstrated the power and flexibility of the tool. You showed us that it can be employed in either heaven grip or earth grip. You demonstrated it at speed in conjunction with striking (how it would be meant to be in most cases). You absolutes did show us the drills utilizing "standard" angles of attack for either Kali, Escrima or a variety of Indonesian Silat variants. Everything you showed would be applicable to the use of a karambit; however, your weapon removes the negatives associated with the Indonesian weapon.

    This was a huge service to the tribe. Personally, I think you should develop a course and video it that slows it down some so that folks. Could better understand the angles of attack, the grip varieties, and the other pain compliance (joint lock) possibilities.

    All of this in such a short video of Brent being Brent.

    Anyone with knowledge of TSA compliance? I've had the Chiorboy felt up a couple of times, and so far so good. (Poor choice of words, but you understand.). Exec Platinum on AA, so I cross security A LOT.

    Well, I'm a delta platinum snob.... for carry on I will be sticking with the chiorboy and pens. The choir boy has been inspected multiple times domestically and on international trips and so far have been able to pass off as a bottle opener when questioned. I have a feeling this big dog will draw more attention.
