    Default Combative Knife Thread

    I have accidentally :) , begun a collection of what I am calling knives designed around combative principles, knives like Pikal, push daggers and shivvy type blades. I follow but have not trained with South Narc, Ed Calderon and am slowly learning about others (like the Piper system, who knew ). I thought a discussion around center line blades and work would be interesting also show us what you have and why you like it? Knives I know I am missing, the Colonel knives blade, the Kabar TDI, the Benchmade SOCP, what else? . Let me know.

    It's really retained for my butt, anything else is secondary :)

    I have a Spyderco P'kal and a Shivworks Disciple, neither of which I carry enough. I also have the TDI, but am stuck with the God-awful original sheath. Anyone know who makes better sheaths?

    I mostly carry a Xavier Knox Vixen these days because it pushes back into my hand when stabbing, kind of like the TDI, but is also a bit dual edged.

    I'm also interested in Arno Barlow's new knife design, also made by Xavier Knox, which is also dual edged and, as I understand, is mostly made for P'kal weak hand carry.

    From what I have been able to gleen it is a very effective system born on the Cape Flats.

    Interesting. Have you purchased the dvd or book as a matter of interest?

    PS Apologies for the hi-jack.

    No , the Piper guy is on IG, why not get in touch with him via a Direct Message, they seem to have some sort of regular training session scheduled but I haven't had a lot of time to look into it.
