It’s not working out. A few reasons are that when one's mobility is compromised relying on a knife for self defense is a poor choice. You can’t react fast enough or be flexible enough to do much good. Without minimal training one'e effectiveness is also minimal. After a number of attempts to communicate with Martial Blade Concepts about this relative to their self training courses I have received no response.
So, for me, this is a dead-end road. I have the small folding knives I carry. They are well made and very useful for basic knife tasks. I won’t be searching for a self defense designed knife. Tactical will remain a term best understood relative to "strategic". Like procedures relate to process.
