Statistically more lethal than firearms assaults at extreme close-quarters, edged weapons are a constant threat that law enforcement officers must be aware of and prepared to defend against on a daily basis. In addition to the threat it presents law enforcement professionals, the threat of an edged weapon assault is a reality that we all must be prepared to face in a self-defense situation.

Duty Knife as a Backup Weapon

Most Law Enforcement officers and armed security professionals carry at least one knife on their person when on duty. This is often true for Concealed Firearms Permit holders also. In addition to the variety of utility functions a knife can perform, many carry a knife with intent to use it as a last-ditch survival weapon or weapon retention tool. Unlike other weapons armed professionals and responsible citizens carry, most do not train in techniques and procedures for how to carry, deploy and in the defensive use of a knife.

Short Impact Weapons

Almost every law enforcement officer, security professional and law-abiding citizen carries something on their person that can be used as a short impact weapon. Whether it's a weapon of purpose such as a tactical flashlight or tactical baton in closed-mode, or a weapon of opportunity such as a pen or a fork, learning to recognize and utilize such implements can be force-multipliers that greatly increase your chances of triumphing in a self-defense encounter.
