Default A little bit more on fighting knives

Y'all can use this thread for reference.

The Knife for When You Can't Carry a Gun

After enjoying that thread I happened to be visiting with my very good friend who is also my FFL when he showed me a fighting knife that I simply had to have so he obtained one for me. CRKT has discontinued these but they are likely available out on the Internet here and there:



The earlier thread's OP called his knife
Quote:
what many knife experts consider to be possibly one of the most effective defensive blades ever devised
and that could be true but this CRKT CK (there is more to the name but I cannot recall it at the moment) would seem to be the fixed blade equivalent. And it's inexpensive if you can find one!

There is one other little knife that I carry every day. It is attached to my key ring. It is the only knife my dad ever carried and before the fire I had his; not I am not sure, not until I re-collect all of my weapons. It is sharp, it is handy to use, and could possibly be very effective defensively. I don't have a picture but I can send you to the website:

The Christy Knife Company | Home of the handiest pocket knife ever designed

(c) The Christy Knife Company 2016

They make a variety of models and any one of them would be a very effective little tool for chores or a surprise defense weapon.

Thanks for showing. Does look like a real pig sticker for sure. Would not mind adding this one to my collection. Currently carrying a Gerber Prodigy Tanto for woods hikes but yours looks more impressive for defense. Is it an upper stainless steel model?

Question

I looks like a handy reduced sized French knife that would be great for chopping salad in the kitchen. What is supposed to make it stupendous for Peter Pan to use fighting Captain Hook?

Hey Chief!! Thanks for the link to the Christy company. Never heard of them, but when I was a boy I remember my dad having one of these knives, just never knew what they were called. His is probably around here someplace, but I think I'll order one, just to have it!!

Best Regards, Les

Excellent!!!!

Before the fire I had one of my dad's that was broken and I was going to get parts to fix it. After the fire it disappeared. I still have my dad's, I think, in the collection of weapons my buddy is holding for me. And I JUST bought another today!

I am unsure what "upper stainless steel model" means.

The store that I used to work for sold oil cloth. The oil cloth company would give the store one to cut the oil cloth. They are not worth $25. They are like a small box cutter.

I presume that is a reference to a Christy sliding blade knife. For the record, it is NOT a knife to use for huge chores or as a defensive weapon unless that's all you have. It is a lady's or gentleman's knife in the old fashioned sense of such terms, easily carried in a purse or pocket and useful for small, simple cutting jobs. They are hand made in America (Fremont, Ohio) where the company started in the late 19th century. The sliding blade pocket knife was developed after WW1.

The base version is precisely 25 dollars so I beg to respectfully disagree on the value. A VERY lightweight pocket knife, easy to use safely, easy to have with you all the time and hardly know it, I think 25 bucks is fair. I carry mine on a key chain with my house keys. The fancier, more expensive versions are not really necessary unless you just want to jazz up this basic, little tool.

Because of the sliding blade the box cutter reference is marginally apt, as you can see.

THIS is what I would call a "fighting knife."

OSS stiletto and scabbard - U.S. issue to clandestine forces during WWII and later during the very mis-handled Cuban invasion during the 1960s.

Not very often seen these days...
