Ever hear of Randall Knives? Bo Randall was considered the father of modern knife making. He passed away in the early 1990's but his family carries on the business. They operate out of Orlando Florida. If you ever get down there they have several thousand knives on display for you to see.

Last time I checked they were backordered on their knives by about 3 years believe it or not. When I was being called back to service for a tour in Iraq Randall Knives had an offer for Soldiers, you could pick one knife out of several designs and they build it for you in 12 to 16 weeks.

I commissioned them to build me my combat knife I took with me to Iraq. The design I chose it is fast and feels like an extension of my hand. I have NEVER felt a knife quite like the Randall I own.

You ought to contact them and see if they still have that offering, you wont be disappointed, I promise.

I will look to take some pics of the knife and upload it here when I get a chance.


I did hear about them. I think the first time I believe was when Mark Bowden wrote Black Hawk Down there was mention of a SEAL having his Randall knife take an AK round and it shattered on his thigh.

I really like the Kershaw Link. It's a bad ass tanto style blade that has safety assist and is big enough to make an impact. Just my 0.02

PS, it's also inexpensive enough that when you most certainly lose it after a self defense scenario you won't be too upset. $70

I don't carry a knife for defensive purposes (that's what my gun is for), but for utility reasons. I carry a small Case traditional for food prep and a Benchmade Crooked River for everything else. So, to answer the OP's question, when between a rock and hard place, I would go for the Benchmade. It's not a tactical weapon for a number of reasons, but would sure do some massive damage.

Maybe I missed something here, but what about the Benchmade SOCP? That looks to be a great self defense knife, especially for getting someone off/away from you. 

Ive held one that a friend has and it has the features of most karambits with a ring to keep the knife secured in your hand, making it difficult for an attacker to get it away from you. It's also designed to not penetrate very deep, so you achieve getting someone off and away, rather than kill them (for some people they want to do this, others don't. I think in the case of self defense with a knife, there tends to be cases where the victim gets in more trouble for using a knife than a gun...this is obviously a state by state, or country issue).
