    On stabbing HARD. From experience, knives can get stuck in bone.

    From experience, knives stuck in bone make GREAT leverage points, so like Gabe pointed out, hold on tight.

    This is true reality: Point no. 1). "A fighting is knife is fueled by rage and ferocity, not by cleverness and showmanship." Good point to remember and to start in a knife fight.

    Yes indeed, and a good resurrection to what was a great thread.

    My carry options have changed several times over the years, but remains similar to my OP back in '09. I still have the waved Delica and like it a lot for LF pocket carry. I have the Blackhawk Be-Wharned I talked about then and like it a lot, but don't often carry it. I have been carrying a Spyderco Military as my main folder, but have an Endura 4 ordered that will be here this week. The Endura (non-waved) will become my main carry folder. I've had several over the years, and in my minimalist approach to everything that I am moving toward, fits within that paradigm. Very lightweight, yet exceptionally sharp and strong, and inexpensive enough that if lost is not a big deal.

    With the acquisition of the Endura, I will have a waved Delica, non-waved Delica, and Endura for my main usage knives. I like those choices, and they fit well with what I want to accomplish.

    I have been carrying a Spyderco Police II pain edge as folder since three years anywhere, anytime. For personal defense, his blade lenght is enough. Before I' ve tried as folders: Spyderco Miltry, Smith & Wesson, Sog, etc. In fact dosen't matter who knife we wear it... you know, it is about software no abot hardware. When I travel in the mountain area I have a rat esse 6. Before the rat 6, I've used Mark2 Gerber, ka bar.

    I know...kinda spacy, but it is what it is.

    Its the same with a knife. If I have cut my steak with it, opened my letters, cut open a box from eastern europe, or whatever, I know exactly its condition...when it needs to be oiled, sharpened, cleaned or what ever.
    This is what I do, and have done for years.
    I bought my current EDC pistol several years ago, when I departed from the Beretta PX-4.
    Except for a couple days when I sent the slide off to Powder River Precision to be milled for a red dot sight, it hasn't been out of my possession except for when taking a shower, and even then it is within reach.
    Familiarity with the weapon.
    There's no substitute for familiarity with the weapon.

    The weight, the feel, the balance, how fast and how far it drops when ya happen to have it slip from yer hands (hopefully never but shit happens)...all matter when the deep shit hits the high fan.

    These are my opinions of course, but when I saw Gabe write the same things that I've been doing for years, I just had to comment.

    Cheers
