Ian Sinclair CardSharp4 Folding Knife

The made-in-France cutter has been in the back pockets of craftsmen, artists, farmers, and chefs for generations since 1890, and looks all the better as the blade oxidizes and the wooden handle wears. It’s super portable, since the blade folds back into the handle when not in use. Opinels are suitable for everything from cutting sausage or cheese at a campsite to clipping kindling for a fire to cutting twine and tape off a package.

You need to be able to access and deploy your TFK with one hand (either hand) and under the pressure and stress of an attack. 6) Non-Slip Surface -The grip or handle scales should be a non-slip texture such as a checked or stippled surface made of G10, zytel osurfacer ABS plastic. Hands may become covered in sweat or blood making anything you grasp slippery and difficult to retain. No stainless steel or polished wood scales for a personal protection knife if you intend to possibly defend your life with it. 7) Blade Design- Different blade designs offer different advantages. For me, it is more methodology driven. If you have trained or follow a school of thought that teaches slashing as a primary defense then a curved or drop point blade may be for you.
