KA9406: 9406 TDI Self Defense Walking Cane

KA-BAR Knives

A cane can be a vital defensive tool where traditional weapons are prohibited. The black powder-coated 0.100-thick 5052-H32 aluminum self-defense TDI cane measures 39" and can be cut shorter for fit.

About the Designer

John Benner - Only a 33-year veteran police Lieutenant could truly understand what makes a knife effective for close-quarters defense. While serving as President and Chief Instructor of Tactical Defense Institute, John Benner saw time and time again what he already believed to be true from first-hand experience: In a conflict, fine motor skills deteriorate and gross motor skills are most effective for fending off assailants. Benner then set out to design a low-profile fixed blade knife for law enforcement, military and security personnel that could be drawn quickly and efficiently in times of duress. After more than a year of prototype samples and in-field testing, the Benner-approved TDI knife was put into production. The same basic principles that founded that first knife were incorporated into all future TDI models, which now complete an expansive line of tactical knives.

Super tuff cane
Pro.This cain is stout and a bit heavy. No question it can take down a bad guy or a pitbull.Strong enough to hold up my 300+lbs while pushing up. Price is half the competitionthat wants to sell you videos to go with it. Should come it handy at the next riot I get stuck in.Con.As I said it's a bit heavy for a fast swing at something. Also the knurling is sharp and should be sanded down before grinding off your fingers playing Mr Stead. I think the crook "the bent part" could be brought in a bit more in case you need to do some crowbar type work.Other wise I like it!

Great cane for walking and self-defense
I use my KaBar cane as cane everyday it also doubles as a fighting stick to keep dogs off four legs and two leg dogs. My asp baton training works well with my Kabar cane. It give me the element of surprise. It great for jabbing and striking. If colonel Rex Applegate saw this cane he would fall in love with it. Strong and will fail you love my kabar
