There are many options available to you if you are interested in owning and wielding a knife for personal defense, so Rob Pincus and Michael Janich discuss the unique specifications of some of the various defensive blades you’ll find. They give brief overviews on types of knives, the grips you would use, and forms of carry from belt holsters to shoulder sheaths and neck chains. Like any personal-defense weapon, the knife is a weapon that should be customized to fit your physique and preferences, so don’t settle on the first blade you find. Furthermore, you should research knife-carry laws in the areas that you live and frequently travel so you know what you’re dealing with.
