Rob Pincus presents the Gideon Tanto Point fixed blade knife from BlackHawk. This is a rugged, durable knife with a solid, heavy blade and thin, comfortable contoured handle. Rob talks about the variety of applications for this knife, including law enforcement, personal defense, hunting and other outdoor uses. The sheath has a retention lock so the knife can’t be grabbed by bad guys. The sheath also allows the knife to be carried in different positions and at different angles. The Gideon handle includes a skull-crusher pommel.

    The point, Rob, is simple. The Second is a right to bear arms. It doesn’t say anytnihg about bearing them openly or concealed. The style used to be to carry them openly. Not so any longer.The Second, like any other right, as the Supreme Court has stated, is subject to time place and manner regulations. So all you open carriers just need to get with the times. You can’t roll back the clock a hundred years or more. That’s what the Islamic fundamentalists are trying to do, roll back the clock. It doesn’t work, and it won’t work in the United States absent a massive (and unlikely) re-education campaign to train all citizens in the handling and use of firearms. As long as you have the right to bear arms in some fashion, you are good to go and the intent of the Second Amendment has been satisfied. I’m not giving up any rights by hiding my gun under my shirt, but I am keeping the peace. I see no issue with that.

    A karambit is a good choice for a defensive blade. Looks like a big knife for an edc knife.

      The main thing to remember is this: Guns will not ptrceot you but you can ptrceot yourself with a gun. I have lots of people that come to my NRA class that have owned one for years. One time a woman came to my class because I gave a special price for Older Women to take the class, she brought along a .38 revolver and a box of 9mm ammo. She had these in her closet for years, but had never actually tried to shoot them. She was sure that they would ptrceot her if anyone had tried to get into her home. If we had No License Open Carry in Texas, I wonder how may people would be carrying a gun that had never fired it or understood how it even worked.The number one statement that I get is: I grew up around guns well, I grew up next to an airport, but I can’t fly a plane!!!!

      No it is not illegal to own one, no mttaer the length, and you CAN carry it on your body concealed. It’s just a pocketknife (we call the ones with just a blade penknives over here in MD).Switchblades and butterfly knifes are the only ones restricted by length (less than 2 inches). Sheath knives are not legal to carry concealed.I have provided links to the California state government website as proof. The statute even says that one-handed knives that use a thumb-stud are legal.Don’t ever let anybody tell you the bigger than the palm of your hand. Just say to them Oh really, numbnuts? Bigger than Shaq’s hand or an infant’s hand? Knives are very useful to carry around, but NOT FOR SELF-DEFENSE! Why? Knife wounds are often not felt immediately, and even if fatal later, will not stop a person attacking now. They may die, but they could kill you in the interval. Use pepper spray or some kind of impact weapon.

      If it is a genuine Victorinox Swiss army knife, the blade suhold be adequate for many uses; however, if the blade leaves alot to be desired, I suspect it is an imitation. A true Victorinox will keep and edge and is sturdy. If all the other aspects of the knife are meeting your needs, then go ahead and get a plain pocket knife. Be sure to compare the prices of a plain pocket knife and one with all the tools. It might be worth buying a whole new knife.You can get a Victorinox without all the tools. That would be my first choice. I used to have an Old Timer which was pretty good, but that was over 20 years ago. I’ve pretty much stuck with Victorinox pocket knifes ever since I’ve gotten my first one. I also have a Gerber lock blade. Those are also great knives, but may be larger than what you’re looking for. I am not sure if Gerber makes a smaller pocket knife. I’ve only sharpened my Gerber once.

      I think that Cali, Chicago, and New York City should be left out of this cooavrsetinn. 1) the governments in those area’s a MAJORLY Corrupt, 2) Those three area’s don’t live in reality but in a state of denial, 3) Also those area’s don’t allow you to do anything without Uncle Chow looking over your shoulder: they are the closest the US has to communism or a dictatorship in the country. Keep in mind those kind of governments usually end up in bloody revolutions. 4) Also you have to keep in mind that those area’s also have the highest crime rates in the nation. They are perfect examples of when the population is lazy and doesn’t care how they live. I think everyone that lives in those 3 chunks of land should be deported and allow those of us who care for the country to turn them into parks or in/outdoor firing ranges. Jez they are firing ranges now it’s just the population is the targets. Such a waste of good land and cattle
