    Training Knives


    Let's face it, of all the training blades and equipment that you can use, this is the one that you're most likely to come across out in the world.  You're not likely to run across someone with a samurai sword, however you're very likely to come across someone with a knife.  The reason being that knives are very common now a days and are very easy to carry and conceal. 

All handles are wrapped in 3MM paracording.  This helps create a very comfortable grip that is durable and more importantly, it doesn't feel like you're holding on to just a piece of metal that some other training blades are known for.  Handles come in a choice of colors of either Black, Red, Dark Green, Blue, or PurpleOther handle colors can be made available upon request.  Please contact me ahead of time to discuss this option.

 

Tactical Dagger 1:

This is a very common knife design  While double bladed knives are illegal in some states, it is still common to run across this design in the real world.

Tactical Dagger 2:

The Tactical Dagger is a very common knife design with a double sided blade.  However the Tactical Dagger 2 is actually based off of Boker's Applegate Fighting Knife.  This knife was designed by Colonel Rex Applegate who is a world renowned author of close combat techniques and expert of riot control in the United States.  This knife/trainer is actually the new and corrected version of the commando knives used during World War 2.  It is one of the only knives to ever be designed based on real world military combat experience.

Kris Knife Trainer:

This is one of the most renowned knife designs in the world.  Even if someone doesn't know what it's called, they've most likely seen it at one point or another.  Most of the time I've only seen a wooden version of this blade being offered as a training tool.  Personally I would rather train with one that looks like the real thing.

This specific model was designed by my instructor Guro Eric Winfree.  A martial artist for over 30 years, he's also a knife enthusiast who draws upon several different family members who are in the special forces.  The trainer is deceptively fast as it was designed for maneuverability in close combat quarters.  Even the butt end of the knife can be used as a weapon to a devastating effect.
