Re: What to do if someone tries to rob you with a knife?

ZRowsn1s, Fortunately my friend who runs the local bike shop used to do both tae kwon do and hapkido years ago. At one point he taught hapkido. But while for my own peace of mind I would like to ask him about a handful of basic things, I fear it would be awkward. Have to figure out how to bring it u...

Re: What to do if someone tries to rob you with a knife?

If someone threatened me with a knife, I'd bore them to death by explaining the ins and outs of edge geometry, how the steel they chose isn't the best choice for stabbing humans (along with an in-depth explanation on how carbides, chemistry, and heat treat affect those properties), and then use the...

Re: What to do if someone tries to rob you with a knife?

^Doeswhateveraspidercan... To reiterate, it was not my intention to hurt anyone. A woman was robbed at knife point a block from my house in broad daylight today in front of a crowded store. I was simply asking what I should do if this happened to me, as I've never really thought of it before... neve...

Re: What to do if someone tries to rob you with a knife?

Yep, gotta concur with the above posts, give up the wallet, run if possible, and live to pray for the soul of the "man" who robbed you. Gosh, a knife fight is a terrifying idea, one I'd only consider if death or injury were truly imminent and there was no better option. Terrible is my thought exact...

Re: What to do if someone tries to rob you with a knife?

Spyderedge, I do bicycle so I carry a lock and chain or cable nearly all the time, or a u-shackle lock, though usually in a backpack and not quickly accessible. not as massive as a motorbike chain but still a bit of ironmongery. also I still have the belt holster for my u-shackle lock from back when...

Re: What to do if someone tries to rob you with a knife?

That's what I was afraid of. Although to be fair I'd kind of figured that there was no easy answer. It is sad that I even have to think about this, I never have before, small town like I said, I mean I've had a few people try and kill me before on the bike but as a cyclist you get used to cars as po...

What to do if someone tries to rob you with a knife?

So I've never thought much about this before, to me a knife is a tool, but today someone got robbed in a crowded parking lot within a block of my house in broad daylight at knife point, as far as I know this type of thing has never happened recently in the small town where I live. It makes me wonder...

Re: Lil' Native Comp Lock – some thoughts after over 3 months of EDC

I own 2 natives. Both s35vn. I was gonna get a third in s30v but went with the lil' native (lockback). It's smaller than the native of course but not "too" small -- i often carry a dragonfly when cycling so smaller knives are no stranger to me. But the main thing was I wanted it because I like how i...

Re: Thank you Sal

Second that. The years have made me somewhat cynical about most companies. I came to spyderco for the product, but also appreciate how they do things, especially in this regard. The fact that the people in the company are willing to publicly answer questions from random customers on a forum like thi...
