Model: KA1481: TDI Law Enforcement Combat Knife w/ Black Serrated Edge Blade

The TDI Law Enforcement Knife was designed by an officer with officers in mind.

Benner has trained thousands of law enforcement personnel since founding TDI in 1986. Prior to that time he served as Lieutenant of the Village of Fairfax Police Department, Coordinator of the Drug Abuse Reduction Task Force, and Tactical Field Commander of the Hamilton County Police Association Special Weapons and Tactics Team (S.W.A.T.). John has developed courses for raid tactics, tactical weapons instructor schools, defensive tactics and knife programs that are currently taught to law enforcement, military and civilian groups.

The TDI Law Enforcement Knife was designed to be used as a "last option" knife. In extreme close quarters encounters where a suspect is attempting to take an officer's handgun, or the officer cannot access his/her handgun, the TDI Knife is available. Designed as an "off hand" knife that draws like a pistol, the reversible sheath can be worn on either the right or left side of the officer's pant belt.

Ka-bar tdi
Great handle, sharp blade. Use caution when removing & replacing the blade, a mis grip or miss when returning the blade to the sheath you will need a bandaid or two! Don't get upset when the finish wears off while using it, that's called character!

Love this little guy.
There isn't anything that I don't like about this. I'm a firefighter and use it as a seatbelt cutter/ multi purpose knife. The way it sits on my belt is perfect and even stays out of the way when I put bunker gear over it. I hugs the body and doesn't snag like other fixed blade knives. It came super sharp and the reverse draw is lightning quick. Recommend to any LE, Firefighter or military people. Thanks for a great knife!

Cons: None
Nice & sharp!
These is a nice tool to have on your belt loop all day. Very comfortable, you won't feel it on you even when seated. The blade is pretty sharp, I cut myself several time drawing it too quickly. A little practice is needed to master the quick draw without cutting yourself. Maybe some of the other guys got a dull knife that slipped though the quality process. Kar Bar is normally good with making a sharp knife.
