I really liked my Smith & Wesson SWAT knife. The steel wasn’t the world’s best; the Chinese-made blade held an edge like Shannon Richards holds a degree in nuclear particle physics. But the SWAT knife was an ergonomic dream come true (the knife, not Ms. Richards, although I’m sure that probably applies as well). More to the point (so to speak) the SWAT knife paired beautifully with my beloved Smith & Wesson 686 revolver. The knife and gun shared Quaker-like simplicity, pleasing heft and rock-solid robustness. Until the 686’s internal lock failed and the SWAT knife’s locking system gave up the ghost. Anyway, I’m building me an M&P for IDPA. I reckon the $33.29 (plus S&H) M&P Linerlock Knife would be a suitable edged accompaniment. Amazon acolyte AaronGH is not sure. In fact, you can hear him screaming (in a retro sort of way) DANGER WILL ROBINSON!
