    Yes, the Ka-Bar's blade length allows it to reach the heart from any point of entry on the abdomen that is less than one blade-length away from the heart. It's pretty revolutionary.

    Hint: Yes, yes you do.

    I just dislike ka-bars. I don't know why it is, I'm sure that they are great at what they do, but I don't like them.

    I prefer a more scimitar-esque blade.
    Of course I meant length bro. That's part of the design mang!

    The drop clip point also helps, in that it makes for a very easy stab through flesh and bone. The blade is thick enough to be tough, but not so thick that it would impead penetration, or get stuck between a couple ribs. And the grooves down the side of the blade allow blood to escape the wound even when the knife is still in it. The thing is a purpose made man killer. Not that any of those features are important in day to day life, but it was and is a fighting knife by intent.

    If it's scimitar blade your into...

    Dang! When did cold steel get so spendy?

    The space between the scapula and clavicle is a more direct route, but you get the idea.

    I did a small central florida TD. It even included some wingchun d00ds and one old-skool bullshidoer coming out.

    I've always wanted this weapon

    Probably one of the most effective weapons ever designed, epsecially if you got buddies wielding them with you.

    for the sole act of killing things. (Insane as that is) I would go for something like this Buffalo river pig stickers.
    basicly it is used for stabbing wild pigs to death.

    I wouldn't show up to a deployment with something like that. Really, something with about a 5-6 inch blade will do you, especially in today's AO. Anyone packing a Rambo knife is usually pegged as "that guy" early on.

    The MOD Razorback was designed with this in mind.
