The Urban Pal should be standard equipment for survival in today's urban jungle. At only 0.7 oz., it's perfectly at home in a pocket or purse and can be easily attached to a key ring, or hung around the neck. With a 1-1/2" long blade, it's big enough to get the job done and its unique handle allows you to really put your weight into its point or edge. For added convenience, the Urban Pal comes with a tough, Secure-Ex sheath, to safely house the blade yet make it available for instant access. Comes complete with Secure-Ex sheath.

Great for utility and self-defense, watch the Cold Steel video above
I like this better than a conventional package opener, except you'd better "choke up" with our fingers on the blade so you don't accidentally cut too deep and hit the package contents. Where this excels, however, is "available self defense." It is small and light enough that whenever you are home, you should have one looped around your neck with paracord, or otherwise carried in some manner that allows simple grab 'n' pull release from the sheath (which means the sheath MUST be anchored to something solid, by heavy duty "camping" safety pin to the inside of a jeans pocket, or by Nite-Ize utility carabiner to a belt loop etc. - o-ring through a lower hole on the sheath tip, Nite-Ize key ring carabiner from belt loop to o-ring). If someone ever breaks into your apartment or house at night, assume you won't have the coordination in a panic situation to open a folding knife, and in any case will want to be able to keep one hand and arm free for shoving him off - which means you want to keep it as simple as wrapping your free hand around the handle, pulling it loose, and jabbing with it if you have to. The beauty of the t-handle is that it is MUCH harder to accidentally drop, even if your arm or back of hand is struck, triggering a "drop" reflex. The beauty of this small blade is that you won't be looking at a fatality, but will convince the b&e felon to "shop elsewhere" (the blade is "big enough", as the gruesome multiple strikes to a side of beef in the video point out). Remember what Jeff Cooper said: a small gun (knife) if always carried, always trumps the big gun (knife) back home in your safe.

Does what it says on the tin
I use this as a simple carry knife when walking, it's technically not legal here in the UK, but I prefer living as opposed to getting killed for my wallet or mobile phone. The knife itself is very light and you don't even know it's there. Came out the box sharp, not shave your hairs sharp but more than sharp enough for it's purpose. The only draw back I found was that in an emergency or life threatening situation you will more than likely not be able to get your fingers around this baby fast enough, as the handle is tiny and when sitting flush with the sheath makes it hard for anyone with medium sized hands or above to truly get a grip on the handle. Forget it if you are wearing gloves.I would suggest get the bigger brother to this model or get a custom leather sheath made to create a little more space to draw the knife. All in all though great little knife and will probably just keep it as a back up when I order the bigger brother.
