How many people have actually put some thought into this? I've thought a lot about carrying two different knives that would complement each other. Or even other tools, not just knives, that would spare our 's from improper useage or abuse.
Personally, I'm considering a 79mm full serrated Rescue with a dremeled wave to supplement my new EDC black plain Para-Military. That or converting my 50/50 edge 98' Delica to fully serrated (how would I go about doing this?).
We've all been in that situation where we find ourselves having the wrong kind of knife for the job, especially if you pay over $100 for a very nice new one which you would rather not use to hack a limb off of a tree OR having a really big knife that is not best suited for fine delicate work. Different blade types and edges give us a variety to choose from.
I know I've heard of a prybaby, it is one of the best alternatives I've ever heard. I don't know if I'd go ahead and purchase one, but some of us may have more of a need for such a thing than I do. I know lots of us use flashlights to supplement a knife in night self-defense. I know I do, I carry a surefire in a holster.
What other things can you guys think of? I'm making this post so we can all share or little tips and tricks that we all come up with.
