I ran into some videos on these videos on Warrior Poet Society today. I’ve always found fixed blades, especially with these designs to be very intimidating to carry (I used to think carrying guns was intimidating too). That being said, they seem to be very functional blades. I specifically like the clench pick, in that it can be used even if your hands get entangled and you can’t get to your gun.
I live in the great state of Texas, so I’ll have to verify the laws, but I’m pretty sure I could carry a Katana if I wanted to here . Even if it’s legal, should I worry about carrying a scary looking as far as self defense use?
