More effective than a fist and more accessible than a gun, the knife is the most pragmatic self-defence tool, and this guide to knife combat celebrates this simple, versatile, sometimes controversial weapon. With essays and instructional articles written by the world's foremost experts, including Ernest Emerson, Hank Hayes, Jim Wagner, and David E. Steele, it presents an international cross section of knife cultures and styles - from the heroic legacy of America's bowie knife to the lethal techniques of the kukri-wielding Gurkhas of Nepal - and features essential empty-hand techniques, exercises to improve fighting skills, and advice on choosing the right knife.
