This small convenient fixed blade is at the top of the curriculum in Self Defense 101, hence the numeric designation. It is a first option for a wide variety of EDC activities and an excellent last resort option for back-up and self defense applications. LE and Security personnel will tuck the Follow-Up behind other belt mounted gear, while EDC users may elect to wear it as a neck knife for quick, convenient access.

Outstanding Self Defense Knife
This was my first Benchmade Knife and the most expensive I've bought to date (yes go ahead and laugh). I bought it as an EDC self defense knife since I think it's better to have and not need than need and not have. The box includes the knife with its bolteran sheath, about 3 or 4 feet of black paracord, some velcro thingys (I think they're used to wear on the belt) and some paperwork.First things first, the knife. I am average sized 5'10" 155 lbs, with hands that are probably medium sized. I have to say, the knife when held in the traditional way of fingers on the handle and tip facing up, feels like it just barely fits my hands. When held with the tip down, it feels nicer. For those with smaller hands, you'll probably love it, and those with bigger, maybe not so much. The knife came very sharp, easily enough to do what it was designed to, and overall it is very lightweight.I kinda like the sheath. It has pretty much perfect retention, and I have ran around, done some workouts, some biking, with this knife on. It has not seemed to have moved at all. The only thing I have against it, and I can't really blame it because it was designed for LE, is that trying to fit a standard belt in this knife will not work. The holes are too small and it's designed (I think, not 100% sure) so that the little velcro thingys can go through said holes and go by the magazine holders. Trying to wear it on my belt resulted in only allowing for it to be worn horizontal, but no matter where I put it, it would stick out a little bit and it wasn't super easy to deploy.I opted to wear it as a neck knife, which is what I was planning to do and they whole reason why I bought the knife. I used some extra paracord from a former project of mine to make a good neck knife knot, and I haven't done anything with the black paracord yet. I kinda like the handle skeletonized, so for now I'm keeping it naked.Overall, I love the knife and I think that it easily is worth the money. If you're an LE professional (bless you by the way, we need people like you) or just some random Joe (or Jill) who wants a good self defense knife that's light and easy to use if you know how to use one, I would say go for it. If you're a bigger person, maybe try and see it in stores or on Youtube (there's only one video in English of it being unboxed right now, but there's videos of it from shotshow) before you make the final decision.
