RECOILtv SHTF/OFFGRID (s02e1): Folding Knife Self Defense

Carrying a folding knife is one thing, but knowing how to use it in a self-defense situation is critical. Training with edged weapons is a core focus of Michael Janich's Martial Blade Concepts classes. Here he introduces us to “pork man” — a makeshift replica of human tissue and bone density so we can quantify the damage done by his Spyderco Delica Wharncliffe knife. Check out the wound that can be created a quick swipe of just a 3-inch blade as it penetrates clothing and the pork meat we're using to simulate a human limb with. Janich also shows us some quick defensive techniques to employ your folding knife on a would-be assailant.
