    Mr. Emerson,

    Thank you for sharing your experience in this forum.

    Could you explain the tactical value of a dagger style double blade knife vs. a single blade?

    Is there a significant advantage?


    Thanks,

    Honor Bound

    Dear Honor Bound,

    Thank for your kind remark.

    I see no advantage tactically, of a dagger over a single edge blade. It's probably more of a psychological thing than a practical thing. A dagger is usually more delicate at the tip than most single edge knives and for most of a knives duties, including self defense, sharp and strong, beats sharp and weak every time.

    My Best Regards,

    Ernest R. Emerson
