    Dude! That's the knife I have, even the same spider logo is on it. But mine's without a black handle. It has a belt clip too. How do you open it quickly though? It takes me around 2 seconds at my best, when it's out. Pulling it of my belt, flicking it open and stabbing someone would take ages.

    But still, any tips on opening it as fast as possible would be welcome.

    I used to do this when I carried a Spyderco:

    makes the draw from the pocket also open it.

    Normally I'd say yes, but if someone's air-choking you with a metal bar, I would assess the situation as already being "escalated'.

    Yes of course, that's true. What I meant is...the guy choking has the superior position, even IF I have the better weapon, somehow I imagined regaining my position of fucking up his would be a prerequisite to pulling out the knife. Also, I'd need to use one arm to get to the knife, instead of having two to better hold off the choke and do a Seoinage or something.

    Counterthrowing is, quite likely, still your best tactic. Carrying a knife still seems advisable, though. Plans within plans and all that.

    Oh, right, yes definitely a good idea to have a knife handy here. Totally. I thought you were advising me to give up on the throw and try to stab instead. Don't worry, once the Seoinage or whatever throw lands, I'm stabbing that fucker hard!
