You can go a long way with a reliable, concealable pistol and a good blade. see everything JS has chosen to carry at Everyday Carry . . .
So after 8 rounds he’s going to stab them
If you need more than 8 rounds you probably live in Mogadishu, or you believe in the spray and pray.
That big knife costs more than my EDC gun. I understand the appeal of high end, hand made knvies and I used to own a safe full but damn the prices.
Your EDC gun cost less than $250? What is it? An old Star or something?
It really is amazing how pretty much just one piece of finely crafted metal can cost as much as a relatively complicated piece of machinery that must endure tremendous amounts of force.
Some materials are really difficult to machine and work with. Expensive knives made with steels like S90V and similar are much more difficult to machine than carbon steel, aluminum, low carbon stainless steel, and polymers – all materials used in guns. I don’t own any such very expensive knives, but I have heard they are nearly impossible to sharpen (but they also hold edges forever).
It does still surprise me how much a high end material knife can cost, though.
That being said, I think it is totally reasonable to spend about as much on an EDC knife as an EDC gun. You’re going to use the knife several orders of magnitude more often over the lifetime of that knife and it serves many other legitimate uses besides self-defense.
For me, I can’t fathom spending $405 on a knife (what I paid for my Springfield XDs 9). My EDC knife is a Buck 110 folder. I don’t push it that hard so the 420HC SST hardened to Rc58 has been good enough for me. It’s very sharp, I’ve really enjoyed having this knife.
The statgear samurai is a fantastic keychain blade, doesnt add the bulk of a vic, and 440C is a completely decent steel.
have ryan grizzle make a rough n ready iwb holster for that. ask for horsehide, smooth side out.
and more beads for everything.
Sig 938, nightmare version with the shiny controls
Pretty and shiny and it’s called “nightmare”
You can take the magazine from the Sig 290, cut a new mag catch hole so it fits the 938 and you now have an 8 round magazine that works perfectly and is only slightly longer
That Sig is a great target gun as well as a carry gun that even fits in some ( baggy) pockets
