Description

In extreme close quarters encounters where a suspect is attempting to take an officer's handgun, or an officer cannot access his handgun, the TDI Investigator knife is available as a "last option" knife. When worn on the pant belt the entire unit - knife and sheath - is well concealed. Designed by John Benner, founder and owner of Tactical Defense Institute. This knife has a black coated blade, black handle and sheath, and black metal belt clip.

I want to love this little knife the same way I want to love my original Ka-Bar TDI, but I can’t and for the same reason: the sheath.

This sheath with included belt clip is definitely an improvement over the original. Good finish retains the knife well, and overall just higher quality.

But, the freakin’ clip will NOT fit a 1.75” or 2.00” belt. The clip is just too small. I cannot attach this to either my inner belt or my duty belt in the original configuration. Also, the clip has to be mounted at the bottom of the sheath “upside-down” to carry with the knife grip up and vertical.

So just like the original TDI, I’ll have to either buy mods or a new sheath to make this unit work for the task it was designed to do.
