    I would just stick to the palm of your hand as a measure of a "legal blade" and over all length is a mute point blade length is what counts. Until spears and such become an issue, then that will change to.

    I have a cold steele roach belly. I got it off ebay for about 17 dollars. Very high VALUE knife IMO. Sharp as a razor blade out of the box. The blade is Krup? steele I think. If I dont feel like a fixed blade I will carry my kershaw blur. Favorite folder ever!

    The KaBar TDI is a good choice for a defensive knife. I have a few from here:

    The difference is the usable sheaths. The factory sheaths are lacking. It's good to carry @ 11 or 1 o'clock owb.


    There's also the excellent Shivworks clinch pick.

    It works well carried @ 11 or 1 as well. Most people carry it with the grip angled down and toward your centerline.



    CRKT's Polkowski/Kasper Companion and Cold Steel's Braveheart are also good choices. The people I know that carry these usually carry them horizontally.

    Some years ago I carried a SOG Pentagon until I bought a Benchmade now that is my EDC.
