Edged weapons (knives and swords) have been around for thousands of years and over the centuries, their quality has improved immensely, but with the introduction of gunpowder, their use on the battlefield has diminished. In the video below, we’ll show you several different types of knives that can be used for self defense and also as survival tools.
It goes without saying that avoiding dangerous situations and confrontations is always your best bet when it comes to self-defense, but if ever you find yourself in a situation where you need to defend yourself from an attacker, then having a knife will certainly be to your advantage. A bladed weapon at the ready may prove to be the difference between life or death in an emergency situation.
The advantage to carrying a self-defense knife over a gun should be fairly clear. They’re easier to conceal, easier to obtain, less bound by laws, useful in more situations, and the mere threat of a knife is enough to make many assailants turn tail and run. Along with being a great self-defense weapon, psychologists say that people are more afraid of knives than guns, making them a great deterrent to crime.
