When you're out of ammo,
it's better to swing a blade than an empty gun.

Most gun owners own, use and enjoy some pretty nice knives.

Even meek housewives (can I say that?) have imagined
using a kitchen knife against an intruder.

But have you ever thought about (or studied) knife techniques and strategies?
Sure, you can open a box or slice a steak, but self defense?
There's more to it than wildly waving a wicked blade.

Special Blade Videos:


A graphic look at the awesome power of a 4-inch folder when placed in the hands of a moderately trained individual.  You'll see an incredible cutting demonstration with the star of the show, "Meat Man."  Plus, examine basic and advanced knife fighting skills, a realistic approach to what happens in a knife fight, what to look for and what to do when a knife is presented towards you, what type of knife is most recommended for self-defense, and why. Incredible and beautiful cutting demonstrations, and why some modern knife fighting experts do not truly understand the power of this blade.  This is a great reference, because it wakes you up to the reality that there are a lot of people who carry these knives and don't know what this blade can really do.
