The TDI Pocket Strike was designed by John Benner of the Tactical Defense Institute (TDI) as a comfortable, convenient, and concealable fixed blade.

The Pocket Strike features a 3.18-inch AUS 8A stainless steel blade that is durable and retains an edge well. Its drop-point design makes it versatile for various tasks, from opening packages to self-defense.

The black nylon handle is ergonomic and provides a secure grip for precision cutting. The TDI Pocket Strike also comes with a hard plastic sheath that fits snugly inside your pocket and clips onto the outside of your pants for easy access.

With a total length of 7.75 inches, the TDI Pocket Strike is both small enough for everyday carry and large enough to provide a solid grip.

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.
