Hi everyone,

In today’s post I would like to discuss belt buckle knives for self defense purposes. As you know if you have been reading my posts for awhile now that I am not much of a fan of folding knives and many of the belt buckle knives come in a folding knife model.

Folding knives take much longer to deploy and open. It takes 2 steps to deploy (pull it out of the buckle area then opening the blade) compared to a fixed blade which only takes one step to deploy (pull knife out of stealth and that’s it). Also you have a greater possibly to losing your knife if you are trying to fiddle around trying to open it especially under stressful situations (fine motor skill which goes out the window during an adrenaline dump). Folding knives are also weaker and much smaller than a fixed blade on a belt buckle knife.

I also prefer a belt buckle knife over any other type of knife such as a clip on knife attached to a belt, pocket etc. This goes with boot knives as well because realistically you are not going to be able to bend down and pull your knife from your boot during an all out altercation. Belt buckle knives are easy to get to when seconds count.

That is why I like this Valois belt buckle knife model because it’s simple and very quick to deploy and feels great in your hand even with such a curvature that exists on the handle. It feels very natural when I am gripping it in my hand.

The knife is completely concealed inside the belt buckle and there is no need to worry when you’re bending over if your going to get your guts ripped out because the stealth is solid and high quality so the blade won’t penetrate through the stealth.

Belt Buckle Has A Hidden Stealth Knife

Belt 1-1/4" wide X 54" long & easily adjusted to any size

Quality Stainless Steel knife with 3-1/2" Blade

Overall length of knife is 7-1/2"

Partially serrated and straight blade

I am not an affiliate of any type regarding this knife but have been using it for the last mouth and feel it’s a great weapon to have for self defense purposes. Just Google “Valois Belt Buckle Knife” and you will find countless sites that sell this product. Prices will vary from site to site. Happy shopping!

Till the next time, remember there is no such thing as a dirty fighter only an educated one.
