    Best defense blade on the market

    Posted by Charles G on Oct 27th 2017

    When I first considered the concept of this blade I researched it, and its competitors, thoroughly - BCM, Al Salvitti, and his team put together some great videos on YouTube about it. It didn't take long to realize that the Colonel has a significant "edge" over the alternatives. The idea of a blade with this shape and ergonomics is ingenious, and the Colonel executes it better than any other. With its compact handle it carries well in hand and in pocket - my preferred carry method for it. The grip and angle on the blade have a very natural feel and direction, inspiring confidence that if you ever had to use it under duress in a defense scenario, it would land where you intend and inflict very effective stopping power. I intend on getting the companion trainer and honing my skills with it, but honestly I hardly feel it will take much time since the fundamentals of the design make it feel so natural in hand that it would be nearly impossible to not be effective with it in an engagement.

    EDC knife of choice.

    Posted by Mitchell Derse on Oct 27th 2017

    Easy to learn and manipulate if using in self defense and not familiar with knife fighting techniques. Completely natural in the hand. Great quality. Great price.

    Good piece of gear

    Posted by Richard on Oct 27th 2017

    I had the opportunity to see the full size colonel at training and saw the quality and build of it and was sold. BCM was out of the full size but the low vz suits me as well. unfortunately i missed the trainer, while supplies last...
    Recommend for anyone looking for solid last defense.

    Great blade option

    Posted by anonymous on Oct 27th 2017

    I had always been looking for a good solution to carrying a fixed blade IWB and the Colonel Blade solves this perfectly. The grip on the knife doesn't protrude severely like a regular fixed blade knife does and the grip angle and sheath makes it easy to conceal under a t-shirt for me. highly recommend!

    what makes America great...

    Posted by Elnundo on Oct 27th 2017

    Flawless process from start to finish. The knife is as to be expected...squared away. I appreciated the training blank to work on my technique on my Dummy. Really like the way the sheath swings to fit in just the right spot. Well thought out product. Climb To Glory.
