People like to use knives as equalizers during fights. The blade has always been a go-to weapon for offense as well as self-defense. A knife is most advantageous in close range. For centuries, blade-associated techniques have been honed and passed down through the martial arts. There’s a variety of fighting knife types- from swords to butterfly knives, and everything in between. Nevada state law has no restrictions on what types of blades are owned. Dirks, daggers, and switchblades may not be possessed on school properties and machetes cannot be conceal carried https://www.akti.org/state-knife-laws/nevada/.
Traditionally, dinner guests kept their knife at the table turned inward to indicate courteous manners. A knife turned outward expressed challenge and threatening behavior toward the person sitting next to them. Blades should never be brandished. Making threatening gestures with a knife is not acceptable. It is a tool that, outside of usual utility, should only be used in self defense. The best thing to do when someone else has a knife brandished is to run. Get out of that situation! If it’s not feasible for you to run away, protect your face, vital organs, and venous features of your extremities at all costs. Every knife should be treated with care, just as every gun is treated as if it’s loaded.
Having an every day carry (EDC) is important. It could save your life someday. There is a wide selection of EDC knives available. Some important features to keep in mind are size, weight, tolerance, grind, edge serrations, handle material, and how the knife itself opens. I recommend reading the reviews on the top EDCs featured in https://www.gearhungry.com/best-edc-knives/ article by Jordan Carter. Please share your ideal EDC in the comments and subscribe if you like knives and the great outdoors!

When I work I carry a knife in my pocket. When I’m in the woods I generally carry a fixed blade.

Same! I like a light mid-size EDC that fits in my pocket for most days. My husband started making fixed blades, so that’s what we will be bringing with us on our hunting trip this year.

That’s great to hear. I am in the process of fixing up a place. It’s in the country where my wife and I have lived a long time. We left, moved to town and are headed back to country life. Thank you for following me!
