    I do like the fox dart even thought it’s not fixed

    I did look at some reviews for the Flagrant beard havoc , looks thick but sliced up this pork shoulder quite nicely

    I may just go with a custom build. So far top of my list is still the NK3K from extrema.

    The flagrant beard was literally the thickest knife behind the edge I have ever seen. WAY thicker than even my double edged SOCP which already can’t cut.

    To say its edge was a 90 degree corner would be an exaggeration. However to say it was 75-80 degrees is no exaggeration at all.

    Might I suggest a Cold Steel Drop Forged Push Knife! One piece all steel construction, no parts to break or fall off, comfortable secure grip and comes with a decent sheath that clips on and stays in place due to the Ulti-Clip.

    If you are serious about SD, you need training.
    Fine motor skills go flying out the window in a stressful SD scenario. Training hence muscle memory can help with that.
    Training is maybe even more important in regards to a ringed knife for SD - especially as you seem to think a ring will make it difficult to remove a knife from an untrained person.
    Also look up SD, ringed knives and being 'degloved.' Warning! Graphic pics.
    You dont want to be degloved, trust me on this.
    Did I mention training is important.

    Somebody mentioned the Signet Ring from Wise Men.
    The ring is fine for a secure purchase on your knife, when drawing it from a pants pocket.
    For SD the ring is too far back on the handle as per Mike Janich (who has forgotten more about SD knife use than most of us in this thread).

    That is a blade commissioned from Dylan Farnham in 2016. It's one of the only, if not possibly the only blade that bears his personal initials instead of the Sage Blades logo. We put a lot of thought into the aesthetics as well as functionality for it's intended purpose. Google "Sage Blades." He does incredible work.

    Many thanks for the reply..it seems it's not available to purchase for i can't find it,
    but the closest blade resembling that one is his Kiridashi.

    His knife making is on another level..very impressed with what i have just seen.

    I will email him to see if its possible to order the knife you pictured..thanks again.

    EDIT-Just realized that blade was a one off design and made for you Mr. Anderson!
    I will have to order the Kiridashi instead. :p

    He does defensive blades in the 300.00 price range that he'll list on his site from time to time. Best contact him and see if he can't make something for you. Sky's the limit. Can't wait to see what you come up with. That design can be improved upon for sure. For reference, the knife I posted would cost around 1600.00

    That Kiridashi looks sweet though! I considered it for a bit but was into reverse grip-edge in exclusively at the time

    Will do, just awaiting a reply from him.

    I know he would be very busy and there will be a long wait list.

    But if nothing happens I'll be forging my own blade which i know will fit my hands perfectly. :D

    He usually doesn't keep much of a waiting list, but he has a very itenerant life. I think this peice, from start to finish, took about three months and that involved a lot of drawing. I haven't spoke with him in about a year, but if you can get in touch, you'll be very pleased with the end result. He stands behind his work, and warranty, including a new sheath when needed, is covered.

    Sounds great, his work is simply outstanding.

    The knife he made for you is amazing...i love reverse grip also, so much better to hold a knife that way. :) But each to their own. :D

    I'm on the quest to find the perfect knife myself. This is a collab between the late Charlie Mike and I from 2017. I intend to bring the design to production this year. It's currently being reviewed by some names in the international private security industry. It's nice.

    Edit: having trouble uploading photos, but I'm sure its somewhere earlier in this thread

    If I were looking for a ringed fighter I’d look at a John Gray Accomplice either a custom or the prouduction

    I just called a John to see if he had any and he is going to send me a Boker version when he gets them

    You sure know all the right people. :thumbsup:

    I'm interested in your thoughts of the concept of the double-edged ringed blade. For a short blade, I find the using "pikal" jabs as your go to, with added karambit-like forward striking options make for a very effective and efficient package. My main discipline has been Krav Maga and such strikes are a natural extension of empty-hand skills.
