Better than I expected

The parts fit snugly together, no problem carrying/using the brush. Its only partially covered but I actually like that, makes it carryall. I have a full beard and its great for a beard brush! lol Its tip is very sharp, real stabbed, not a toy. I carried it across country when I had to drive, going into strange truck stops, etc. I'd absolutely get it again.

Great hair brush

Not only is this item completely practical and serves it's purpose as a weapon, I have used the brush daily for about the last five years. It is the perfect gift for yourself and others.

I Bought 3 of them for my DD and DW. Wife has had a comb knife I got from another company many many years ago. This item gives a since of security and NOT false security. Practice Practice Practice How to carry and how YOU would use it. Problem we found out, Handle will only go into the brush one way, IT IS NOT round, if forced just a little bit it will split the brush but all up worth the money for a CQ weapon.

major flaw

Upon receipt of my brush knife, we discovered a major flaw. The brush became the absolute favorite grooming device of my cat! This cat HATES being brushed, and as soon as I took this out of the box, she jumped in my lap and let me brush her with it for an hour! Now I have to buy another one for my wife!

For All Family Members

Simply put, I bought one for each of my Family Members. It should be understood, that these are for the Jabbing hand. Practice; with these as a Jab Extension for Defense; with the blade in direction of the pinky.

self defence

This is an emergency self defence weapon, not a daily use knife. As such, it has good potential in an emergency. To the people who want a sharp blade, not happening in plastic. Carry a steel blade for that.
