“When Interviewing subjects at conversational distances or trying to obtain information, I needed something that would be faster than a gun to get on target. This knife design allows for
the maximum blade length for comfortable horizontal appendix carry. The knife is designed to ride close to the body where one's hand can go unnoticed while it rests on the handle of the knife during conversation. This is not an all-purpose knife. It is designed solely for personal protection. The knife can be deployed with either hand or the sheath reversed for left-handers. The design was created around a reverse-grip, edge-out draw that allows for quick deployment and superior retention. It can also be positioned for forward- grip work with a generous jimping and an aggressive ramp. There is no pommel, as I wanted to maximize the blade length with a comfortable easy-on, easy-off system. The polyurethane straps can accommodate different belt widths. The knife fits into a simple integrated and layered system.”
