We all not experts in protecting self during odd situations,neither we are Bruce Lee,who can fight with dozens of enemies at a time. That’s why we need to update ourselves in any bad situations. Like if you are going for tracking and you lost from the group then you must know how to use rescue knives in that situation.
What are the ways from where we can learn more about knives, fighting techniques and how to use a knife.
Knife Fighting books- We can learn many techniques from Knives book. Like one which I know is a Throwing knife book by Blackie Collins, it covers subjects like how to select a knife and how to make target for survival purpose.
Another one is Knife & Tomahawks are thrown by Harry K. McEvoy, this book covers basic tomahawks fighting techniques, target building, developing bulls eye perception.
You can also get knowledge from Make the knife you carry booklet, you can learn how to make knives by using tools, how to design a handle of the knife, how to set up your workshop. In this you will find some quick ideas for developing your own knife for everyday carry.
