We Love the Craftsmanship in These Custom Knives (27 Photos)

Knives have some potential advantages over firearms as a self-defense weapon. It takes a minimal level of training for a knife to become useful as a self-defense tool. A knife can be used in situations where the use of a firearm isn’t prudent, in a crowd for instance where over-penetration and innocent bystanders may be a concern.

While disarming someone who has a gun is no simple matter; disarming someone with a knife generally involves grabbing a sharp piece of metal and is infinitely more difficult. I don’t know many people, even those who are highly trained, who are willing to attempt a knife disarm.

A knife does not need to be reloaded and short of breaking the blade or catastrophic failure of the locking mechanism a knife does not malfunction.

Bacon is always the answer. Currently working towards an MBA with an emphasis in fantasy football. I have friends in spite of myself. Probably the best meat eater in the world. Trying to change the name from Tweeting to Gregging. Recommended by 4 out of 5 people that recommend things. I’m here to avoid friends on Facebook.
