The KABAR TDI Law Enforcement Knife was designed by John Benner, founder of the Tactical Defense Institute. The TDI Law Enforcement Knife was designed to be used as a "last option" knife. In extreme close quarters encounters where a suspect is attempting to take an officer's handgun, or the officer cannot access the handgun, the TDI Knife is available. Designed as an "off hand" knife that can draws like a pistol, the reversible sheath can be worn on either the right or left side of the officer's pant belt.
The TDI Law Enforcement Knife was designed by an officer with officers in mind. Mr. Benner has trained thousands of law enforcement personnel since founding TDI in 1986. He has developed courses for raid tactics, tactical weapons instructor schools, defensive tactics and knife programs that are currently taught to law enforcement, military and civilian groups.
The KABAR Besh BOGA Knife is a woman's personal self defense knife designed in collaboration with custom knife maker Brent Beshara. The Besh BOGA Knife (Back Off Get Away) has a double edge blade area with a Beshara designed blade geometry that maximizes tip strength, and a spine with micro serrations that is suitable for use as a file.
