The first rule of knife fighting is “have a knife.” And while carrying a knife helps, you don’t really have a knife until you have the skills to get it into action when you really need it. In Volume 6 of Michael Janich’s acclaimed Martial Blade Concepts video series, you get those skills.
In the most comprehensive video of its kind, Janich leads you step by step through every aspect of the carry and high-speed deployment of defensive folding knives. First, he lays the foundation of your knife-opening skill by explaining the mechanics of one-handed openings and the advantages and disadvantages of thumb studs, disks, flippers, blade holes, assisted opening mechanisms, and the Emerson “Wave” opening feature. He then teaches you the most effective methods of manually opening your knife, including thumb openings, handle-swing openings, ring-finger openings, ultra-high-speed inertial openings, and the best tactics for use of the Emerson opener.
With that foundation set, Janich guides you through the various methods of carrying a tactical folding knife, providing little-known tips and tricks on tip-up and tip-down clip carry, pocket carry, inside-the-waistband carry, and belt-pouch carry. For those who operate in non-permissive environments, he also reveals numerous deep-concealment methods that enable you to keep your knife completely hidden, yet get it into action instantly.
Finally, Janich puts all the pieces together and presents detailed instruction in the mechanics of drawing your folder from various carry positions and instantly flowing into a high-speed opening—even during the chaos of a life-or-death street encounter. In the process, he reveals his personal secrets that enable him to draw and open a folding knife in one second or less.
No matter what system of knife tactics you practice, the ability to carry, draw, and deploy your blade quickly is critically important. The knowledge and skills presented in this video—along with sufficient practice—will ensure that you have that ability when you need it most.
