From TOPS: The Quickie is made for people who live in an increasingly uncertain world. Designed with law enforcement in mind, it's a "3-finger" karambit, meaning the 3rd finger away from the blade should be placed in the hole.
This knife has a very specific purpose and use in mind. By putting the finger hole on the 3rd finger and then leaving a nub after that, it gives the user some ability to still use the hand while holding the knife. For police officers in particular, this makes it an excellent option for a weak hand weapon. The knife can be drawn when the firearm is unavailable. Then once the firearm becomes available, the officer is not faced with the impossible decision of either dropping or trying to re-sheath the knife in the middle of an altercation.
The Quickie was designed for concealment and ease of use. It's 1/8 inch thick with a low profile sheath and clip. It's short length aids in concealment as well. So whether you're on or off duty, the Quickie is a great back-up option for self-defense.
