    Does anyone use a knife, as a backup, that is completely hidden and hardly ever used as a tool? I have been looking for a good backup knife that I can conceal to the back of my belt that I use for a 'last-ditch effort.' I have heard great things about www.hideawayknife.com as they offer many different methods of carry. Is anyone familiar with them? I really hope this doesn't sound like an advertisement, I am looking around for one to buy and just came across these.

    Benchmade also makes a decent backup knife the CBK

    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    It's worthwhile to check into the knife carry laws in one's state, and whether a permit/license that allows one to carry a handgun also applies to knives and other weapons.

    FWIW, here in Pennsylvania there is no preemption for knife laws, so arguably it is easier to carry a gun than a knife in the state.

    ETA: I do like my Ka-Bars though...

    Gotta like states with concealed carry weapons licenses rather than concealed firearms licenses. I do always carry a one hand open pocket knife with me. And I have had knife defense/fighting in martial arts. Because of that, I know the last thing I want to get into is a knife fight. If I have no other option I will use the knife to fight, but that will be a final line of defense.

    Always run from a knife and rush a gun - (attributed to Jimmy Hoffa in a quick online search)

    Fixed Blades:

    Check out Blackhawk.com, they've got an injection molded, concealment system for their fixed blade knives.

    Folding Blades:

    I recommend Kershaw with the spring assisted opening, very legal everywhere.
