I don't even really know all the different Malaysian/Micronesian/Filipino names for different blades, Samuel, to be honest. I might try www.kriscutlery.com if I were looking for a blade from that part of the world. Inexpensive but known for high quality. I don't have any of their blades, though.

I've had several CRKT knives and I've been impressed with all of them. My latest is the aluminum M-16-14D. I have several folders, including a serialized semi-custom by Benchmade and some other full customs, but the CRKT's are just as tight. When one considers the price, the value is definitely there. You can't go wrong.

I have a CRKT crawford KASPER that I have had for about 7 years. I have taken it hunting, fishing, camping, and when working the street. I traded a Guy a flea market "NINJA-TO" for it, so having no money in it h have realy...realy abused it. You know what? execpt for a little serface rust on the blade at the thumb stud. It looks as good as it did new. The blade keeps a good edge and is not to hard to sharpen. (I did not like the bevel it came with so it took some time at first.) Over all It has held up better than some of my "Expensive" benchmade knives.
When You absolutely have to hide a body...try Alaska.

CRKT is great for the price point. I'd recommend any of their **** to someone who needs a suitable knife on a budget. They also have a large variety of styles and a shitload of design collaborations with custom makers. Good stuff. CRKT, Spyderco, Benchmade...can't really go wrong with any of 'em.
1% Shark is better than you.

I have a CRKT M21-02 I am holding it in my hand right now and after about 1.5 years it looks brand new. Best for the price. IMO

The idea being as such.
It can generally be said stabbing to the gut is really your only viable combat move with thrusting in t3h street, as the heart is too well protected, and takes too much force to penetrate.
Hoog? The Kali I'm familiar with taught slashes as defensive maneuvers but thrusts when it was time to end things.
