When worn on the pant belt the entire unit - knife and sheath - is well concealed. Designed by John Benner, owner of Tactical Defense Institute. Belt sheath included.

    First off, big thanks to Jeff for getting this posted. I saw that this site had the serrated version of this knife online, but not the straight edge. I simply e-mailed Jeff, and he stated that not posting the straight edge online was an oversight. Jeff immediately got it posted. Jeff has the best deals I can find.

    Anyway the knife. The TDI knife is a must-have for any LEO seeking a fighting knife. Its clever sheath design allows for the knife to clip onto the inner belt, under the duty belt. The sheath is designed to not take up valuable duty belt real estate. The knife is quicker to deploy than just about every folder. The only folder that may keep up is a wave knife, but a fixed blade is easier to pull when your fine motor skills go out the window during a stressful event. You can also find dull training versions of this knife so you can do serious training with this design.

    The knife is very sharp, and I've had no reliablity or durability issues with the TDI knife.
