Ryan Hoover’s “Edge Reality” is a program that teaches blade defense concepts and associated critical thinking. Take a look.

This tomahawk would be the perfect addition to a backpack for a trip into the woods. It’s a tool that will provide shelter and wood for a fire, as well as protection. One strike from a CRKT Kangee Woods T-Hawk would be devastating. I can’t think of a scarier close-quarters edged weapon.
The Kershaw Lucha is an easy-to-hold and easy-to-fight-with-knife. The blade is an impressive piece of steel. Losing your grip isn’t going to happen, and the mighty big blade will slice and dice through whatever stands in your way, be it a Russian from Red Dawn or some steak and chicken that needs to be turned into fajitas.
Who doesn’t love adding some pain to a punch? Knucks, aka brass knuckles are one means to do so. These are a pound of pain.

This small knife is versatile and useful for a wide audience. Its uses are endless, including sharpening tent stakes, opening packages, prying open car doors, and whatever else a user can dream up. The sky is the limit here.
The Strider Knives SnG folder is a well-built, stout folding knife. In fact, it’s a smaller version of the SMF that was issued to the US Marines SOCOM.
The ZT 0920 folding knife designed by Les George checks every box. Badass custom designer, top tier materials, smooth action, and a little bit of Bling tastefully done.
