I'm sorry to hear your entire country is a posted victim zone. When you are being stabbed to death in an alleyway in the middle of the night, at least you'll take comfort knowing that you are a law abiding, unarmed citizen.

You guy's really need to look out-side of your own country, Your going backwards in evoloution!

I dont need to worry about getting stabbed, I dont even lock my doors. And if I was being stabbed I would have strangers coming to my aid.

Of cause there are some places in some cities that are not safe, so I dont venture near them, no need to.

And if you really want to be safe from knife attacks, learn Jiu-Jitsu. If you came at me with a knife, you would be the one getting stabbed.

I have a $5 Home Depot knife with replaceable boxcutter blades that I carry all the time. Other times other knives. I once did a show in Chicago and during setup I pulled out the boxcutter knife to open a box with nylon straps and lots of tape. A woman freaked and told me I would have to take it to my truck. So I did and came back about an hour later and they were upset because the box still wasn't opened. I gave them a card and told them to call when they had it fiigured it out. My job was done delivery was made. Never had to go back and I see that company is about to close another 100+ stores.

I was on R&R in Sydney in late June of 1969 and wasn't prepared for the cold weather.... I bought some very nice sweaters a couple of boomerangs and a Kukri at an military surplus store that I took back to Vietnam... They had no laws against selling or buying large knives there at that time..... I spent nearly 3 months pay while there and had a ball... I only had one disturbing situation arise when I has hitting on a Go Go dancer at the Whiskey A Go Go in Kings Cross and her very butch lesbian lover pulled a knife on me..... It wasn't all that frightening to me but I really really wanted that dancer.

Nobody is ever truly safe from violence. You may live in the coziest, safest neighborhood in the world and still be a victim.

If we were both sitting in a restaurant, and someone came in with an AK and started mowing people down, who would have a higher chance of surviving? Me with my gun, or you with your Jiu Jitsu?

I thought we were talking about knifes


To be fair, if I did go to America (will never happen) I would want some kind of weapon!
I have nothing against American people, but most of you guys really need a change in mentality.

1. No one carries a knife for defense against a knife wielding attacker.. that's in movies not real life.
In the US, we are responsible enough to be able to keep and bear arms.
I'd shoot a knife wielding attacker

I see you list Australia as your location...which means you aren't responsible enough to own guns either...according to your government.


2. I had no idea Australia had cities with ZERO crime or police since total strangers protect you before you have a chance to defend yourself.
Oh, and do you do the same for them?


3. Adults work for a living, sometimes this requires them to go outside of the imediate safety zone. Not everyone is as lucky as you, having those total strangers being your bodyguards and whatnot.

Im guessing you live at home under parents roof, or are "taken care of". No offense, but your version of reality is not accurate for most of the world.. including Australia.

Ive been there.. beautiful country, great people, best surfing on the planet..... Not crime free by a longshot.
Look outdside sometime.

4. I trained at Rigan Machados BJJ school in Redondo beach for a bit.. could you elaborate on your technique for grappling with a knife wielding attacker? because we are taught to run like hell, and avoid CQC with a bladed attacker. Only a fool grapples with a guy that has a knife... Ask your JJ instructor for a refund ASAP.




To stay on topic, US members should check out Wallyworlds knife selection.
They have the Kershaw Crown forler for $10.
Damn fine blade, liner lock, solid, tight, no wobble.
great lockup, 8CR13MoV Stainless steel, with Micarta scales.
The steel is good, holds a decent edge and will stand up to daily abuse.

These are about the same quality as a $40 Kershaw.. Not quite as nice as my Kershaw Ken Onion Leek, but pretty close, and far beyond any other $10 I've ever seen or heard of.

Thank the massive buying power of walmart for finally using it to bring a decent product to market for a very very good price.
( Now I Hate walmart..but I give credit where it's due.)

I'd recommend this over most $20 blades on the market.

It seemed to me the discussion (at least between you and me) turned toward self defense and weapons in general.

My everyday carry is a M16-14T - Tanto - Designed by Kit Carson. I needed a blade where the handle wasn't going to break, am rough on my gear.
So far it's been my best knife, and has served me well since first got it back in 07 for when I was in Iraq.

What do you guy's carry them for?

That just makes me




I see you list Australia as your location...which means you aren't responsible enough to own guns either...according to your government

Like every country in the world, there are people not responsible enough to own guns. and kudo's for our stance, as shootings and gun accidents have droped significantly.

.
I never said that, of cause there is crime every where, but no one needs to carry weapons where i live. If i was getting attacked in public, yes! i would get assisted from strangers, and if i saw some one else getting attacked, yes! i would give them assistance.
Where i come from if you pulled a knife you would be called a dog and be driving out of town.




Adults work for a living, sometimes this requires them to go outside of the imediate safety zone

wtf




Im guessing you live at home under parents roof, or are "taken care of". No offense, but your version of reality is not accurate for most of the world.. including Australia.

I'm 35, I work for a living, i have a wife and two kids. I'm not affended. this is just another false American ideology.
you clearly havn't travelled far from your city, if thats your view.




Ive been there.. beautiful country, great people, best surfing on the planet..... Not crime free by a longshot. look out side somtimes

Thank you it is a beautiful country. please tell me what parts of oz you visited. I have travelled to most parts of the country.




because we are taught to run like hell, and avoid CQC with a bladed attacker. Only a fool grapples with a guy that has a knife... Ask your JJ instructor for a refund ASAP.

This would take up a whole new thread.
some times you cant run! tell me what hand most people hold their knife in an attack?
you should ask for a refund imo


because we are taught to run like hell

Urban carry would be a Cold Steel Voyager tanto folder.

Out in the sticks I use a BlackJack Iron Mistress Bowie. The convex ground edge stays sharp longer than most.

Case knives are very good investments and the favorite brand of old guys for as long as I can remember... I gave my son an Osborne designed Benchmade Rift just like the one I carry...

Your correct, and im sorry to the op.
In my first post I did say I don't carry a knife unless i'm fishing then it would be a fishing knife, then i went off topic.
And Although im not the only person on this thread that has gone off topic, I may have started it.

I still feel my question was a valid one in reply to badninja's comment to me,


No one carries a knife for defense against a knife wielding attacker..

and im still interested in a response.

Happy and safe new year to everyone.

I don't need to carry a knife. I work out pretty well and if someone comes at me with a knife I welcome them into my fists.

Unless you're a hunter or have some other special reason to carry a knife then there is no need. If you carry a knife for the sake of it then you need to put your man pants on.

I carry a tiny Swiss Army knife on my keyring (which I use to open boxes and cut things) as we are not allowed to carry certain types of knives. For example, we are not allowed to carry any folding knife that has a locking blade. Here in London all the kids that are in gangs and the like carry knives and this has led to an even greater crack down on people carrying knives in the country as a whole.

Gotta love the UK and the thuggish mentality of the scum-bag children we are dragging up here.

I personally would never carry a knife in my country because I don't need one. A lone attacker with a knife isn't really something a well trained individual should fear. I myself have survived 6 or 7 incidents (in the last 18 months) where a knife was pulled on me and I disarmed my attacker, with minimal or no wounds to myself. My attackers however ended up with broken wrists, arms and a really messy smashed up nose...the latter being my favourite! lol

All that said however, kids round here are starting to carry converted firearms (South London being the last place I witnessed this) and while they are usually as dangerous to the wielder as they are to the potential victim, the thought of facing off against someone with a gun is much more frightening than someone with a knife.

Weapons do not always serve to protect us, sometimes they just make the situation worse.

define special reason, does general utility count?

I have never been attacked or had to fight anyone, I have been in situations where violence was threatened but have always negotiated a reasonable end to the scenario (so far) and revealing I have a knife about my person seems the quickest way to escalate the situation to a level where rational conversation becomes useless.
