A collaboration between John Benner of Tactical Defense Institute (TDI) and KA-BAR, the TDI Law Enforcement Knife is a self-defense tool designed for quick draws and immobilization.

The TDI Law Enforcement Knife by KA-BAR offers ultimate protection when all else has failed. Designed with the input of a 37-year veteran police Lieutenant, this knife offers an edge in close-quarters situations. The unique curved blade design can be quickly drawn like a firearm to immobilize an assailant.

Made from high-quality AUS-8A stainless steel, the 2.31-inch straight-edge blade is coated with a black finish for a sleek look. The black Zytel handle has a textured grip and a deep finger groove for a secure hold, while the included glass-filled nylon sheath attaches to the belt for easy access.

Making a quality KA-BAR product requires the talent of experienced craftspeople performing dozens of processes with precision and skill. Each knife undergoes specific manufacturing processes to ensure corrosion resistance, strength, edge holding ability, and an out-of-the-box razor sharp cutting edge.

Soon after its introduction in the mid-1920's, the KA-BAR trademark became widely known and respected. There have been many versions of how the KA-BAR name came to be, but all evidence points to a letter received from a fur trapper. This particular fur trapper's testimonial turned out to be the most significant ever received by the company.

He wrote, in very rough English, that his gun had jammed and that he had therefore relied on his knife to kill a wounded bear that was attacking him. In thanking the company for their quality product the trapper described using his knife to kill the bear. All that was legible of his scrawled writing was 'k a bar'. The company was so honored by this testimonial that they adopted this phrase and used it as their trademark, KA-BAR.

Review by Richard Wallbaum from Santa Cruz Ca

I bought this for a female friend for self defense. The Karambit style is excellent for stealth defense and the handle size is excellent for the girl's hand.

Review by Justin Hill from North Carolina

One of the best knives I own and has a purpose of its own. It usually sits opposite of my pistol on my left side when I might not be able to draw quickly, its an easy cross draw and slice if needed. I never even know its there. I carry a traditional flip knife on my pants pocket, but that would take a while to deploy, where this is ready to go. Its very sharp and durable.

I bought this Ka-Bar because of the unusual configuration of the knife. Now that I have handled this piece, I better understand the design. There is quality and utility to this knife and I recommend it.
