Thank you, I deffinatly see some I'm interested in. Also this is more of a self defense weapon that I will carry with me a last resort.

I have not handled that knife before, but I did notice that it wasn't edged on both sides. I like the Dagger style boot knife myself, so would look elsewhere. However, the quality of a Benchmade (Even thier Harley Davidson line) is pretty well established as good to excellent. You would not be making a bad move to buy from them, IMO.

Lots of companies are making their "daggers" with only one side sharpened to comply with many states ban on double edged knives.

Check this guy out . He also makes a "Texas boot knife" here in Tx, just came across his web site last night searching myself. The knife is a very slim design

I never got the whole weapon on the boot thing to begin with . Not to knock anyone's idea but I never got it for a few reasons . The first is having a piece of metal strapped to my boot off setting the balance and getting caught up everywhere if I was off in the woods . The second is the unnatural draw and longer drawing time . The Popeye Doyle carry method worked in Hollywood I would believe not so much in real life . Finally if I had to use my feet to fend off an attacker why would I want to put a weapon that close to them that could be used against me .

I would say that there are applications for having a knife strapped to a boot but being a civilian I just do not see the need .

I'm going to agree, because contrary to popular belief and hollywood, it is extremly difficult to secure anything to your ankle.
