I'm thinking about picking one up. Any links to concealment options for carrying under a tucked shirt?

Looks to me like it's designed for slashing, which has never been an effective knife fighting technique. I'd tell you to go for something made for stabbing.

Yes. Have the green handled version...given to me by Ka-Bar's John Stitt (Vice President).

I use this as my primary carry knife while overseas.

I plan on shooting if deadly force is required. My intended purpose for the knife is for use in my weak hand while securing my sidearm in my strong hand if someone were trying to take if from me.

I was looking at them but it does not fit well in my hand with the finger placement. Grip felt extremely awkward.

Disagree. Slashing is an important part of knife fighting. That's like saying jabbing isn't effective for boxing...You aren't going to knock the guy out with the jab, but it's still important.

The TDI allows for an execution of both a slashing and stabbing attack. The leverage you can apply with the curved design of the TDI allows for a more forceful stab than with the knife you pictured.

This is exactly why I carry the TDI on my weak side underneath my duty belt. The handle stays nicely hidden behind other gear on the belt.
