OK you got me there! There is definitely a cool factor, no denying it.LOL, got one you did not think of ....
Typically these "types" of knives remind me of Rambo, I must admit that my reason for having one is the "cool' factor, and I ain't talking about Rambo cool either.
I am a hardcore Glock fan and have to have the knife up the cool factor !
(BTW : I edc a Gerber blunt nose multiplier that has two blades, flat & serrated, and both are razor sharp.)
E30325 said fixed blades are for hiking, camping, and survivalist stuff. And you could actually carry a long fixed blade knife in those circumstances, for self defense or as a tool. I guess I don't think beyond everyday street crime - that's more than enough to occupy me.
Speaking of which, I found that Glock also makes folding knives which could be carried everyday for self defense. I googled your Gerber blunt nose multiplier that has two blades, flat & serrated, and I think it is quite sufficient for edc!
