The whale rescue blade attached to a 12ft pole darn pesky orcas and those fin whales always waiting to get a sneaky attack in
There are numerous threads on defence edc but tbh its a contentious issue as far as I'm concerned .
Sure I'd rather have a knife than nothing , I've posted before I've been attacked with a machete I have scars and the guy got hurt and a long sentence .
I've practiced Silat and that really didn't kick in just natural reflex is what helped then it crept in , I'd personally say train in a specific MA .
Learn what is basic if that's all you want or keep at it using designated knife like a karambit , after a discussion I had with someone returning to the dessert in oct .
We both decided and he's on his 3rd tour and seen CQC a long thick fixed , with a sharpened top swedge is a good all rounder .
Maybe if its a spyderco a warrior or a modded temperance although idk how or if putting a swedge on one would weaken it .
It is horses for courses there's no definitive answer for a multitude of possibilities , your local carry laws etc come into play etc ...ect.
Experience in real life scenarios training muscle memory is all good though and I'm just pulling your leg on the whale thing .
Its them **** crack squirrels you've got to watch out for
