In extreme close-quarter encounters where a suspect is attempting to take an officer's handgun, or an Officer cannot access his handgun, the TDI 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.
When you're chasing after a suspect, be sure to have the KA-BAR TDI Law Enforcement Tanto Knife in your possession. This high-performance knife comes with flexible Cordura straps to mount to duty belts, tactical vests, or underneath your pant leg. This lightweight, compact knife features a stainless steel blade with drop point shape and a versatile 15 degree blade angle. The Tanto Knife comes with either a straight or serrated edge. The comfortable handle is made from Zytel, providing a balanced grip and easy maneuverability. The flat blade is 3-11/16 inches long and the overall length is 7-9/16 inches. The knife includes a nylon sheath to protect the blade and keep it sharp. This is the knife that officers trust to provide the performance that they can rely on out in the field.

The retention on mine is very heavy, just pulling on the knife may not get it out if you are a person with weaker hands, but pushing on the holster with your thumb (the intended way) helps to release it from the holster. This knife definitely isn't going anywhere unless you want it to. Also, all the screws in the holster come with blue thread locker on them, which is a nice touch.
This knife is also not for general use, the steel is not designed to be used regularly and the edge will not hold up for very long if you use it for everyday tasks.
Overall this knife excels at the use case it was designed for. A easily concealable, last-ditch weapon. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a great self-defense knife.
Cons: The screws are tiny and can strip easily if you over tighten them. also, the L shaped Torx wrench included is not double ended, and makes removing the screws take quite a lot of time. If I had to make an improvement, it would be larger screws, and a double ended tool to speed up maintenance/configuration changes.
Overall I am extremely happy with the quality of the TDI and would recommend this to anyone who would like a self defense edged weapon.
