I think a BG War Boar would be cool, but the Pika is so small and has a cool sheath. I bet you can wear it and forget all about it. Plus i want something i can put in my front shirt pocket so if I'm sitting down i can easily retrieve it...

Good video Randy!

PK "thinking about getting one"...you'll have one before me...

Also you can hold it in forward grip (like a claw) as well so if people are uncomfortable with the more popular way or think they need specialized training...

This isn't the Pika but you get the claw idea (image from google)

MM, I have Karambits ranging in size from a 5 inch blade all the way down to an inch and a half long.

5 inch blade is a CS Steel Tiger
2.6 inch is an Emerson Combat Karambit
1.5 inch is a CRKT A.G.Russell stinger 2 (only 3in total length)

1.6 inch Pika.
AND I will probably at some future date get the Doug Marciada designed Dmax.

I would LOVE to have a War Boar, but IF it was bought to be a user knife, I would probably pass as I personally think it would be to big. For a K-bit that will actually be used I prefer nothing larger that about 2.5 inches. Anything larger would be of course harder to conceal plus in actual use it COULD hang up on bone depending upon what your target was. You want to be able to disable you opponent by cutting tendons, veins/arteries and slashes to other "Parts of opportunity" without getting hung up, something a longer blade could easily do. Your goal is NOT to cause a fatality, but to provide YOU an opportunity to escape by causing your opponent so much pain, disability/blood loss so as to not be able or want to continue. Just my Old Geezer twocents

That looks about the size of the Ringer 2 but the ringer has two finger rings plus a "Nub" on the top of the ring.

cool


I THINK that Bastinelli made the first Pikas but now they are made by Fox in Italy. At least that one Video (I will link it here) was Bastinelli doing a demo of the Pika.
