A knife can be your best friend if you ever had to fight a suspect off of your firearm. When picking a duty blade, you need to keep the following things in mind:
1. Can you access it while fighting for gun retention?
2. Can you deploy it with one hand?
3. Can you deploy your duty knife off of your support side so that primary side can continue weapon retention?
The Colonel Blades Full Colonel is my weapon of choice on duty or during private security contracting. However; if your department/company policy does not allow for fixed blades, the Colonel Blades Folder is the knife of choice.
