When the chips are down, you'd better pray that you've got the KA-BAR TDI LDK (Last Ditch Knife) on you.
This credit card-sized tactical knife is the perfect size for slipping under your shoelaces or into a secret sleeve or jacket pocket.
Designed by John Benner of the Tactical Defense Institute, this KA-BAR boot knife is specially designed to aid law enforcement officers who would readily appreciate its super sharp drop-point blade and easy-to-conceal flat shape.
The hard Kydex sheath will also fit securely in most spaces, so you can carry with confidence.
A knife isn't always the best method of self-defense, but when you have nothing left to lose, it could mean the difference between life and death. The LDK's compact design also makes it convenient as a quick utility knife for everyday tasks.

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.
