5 Dangerous Weapons You Wish You Had!
The second weapon I reviewed was the Lost Raider Katana. We've been seeing a lot more themed katana recently, which is something I am really enjoying. This specific samurai sword features a leatherette wrap on the wooden scabbard, giving it a very rugged design. The blade itself is made from a 1045 carbon steel, which isn't my favorite steel when choosing a katana, but it's nice in the respect that it is a softer steel which can be a benefit when compared to some of the harder steels that tend to be more brittle. The tsuka is wrapped with a synthetic leather and also features synthetic rayskin underneath the wrap. Watch the full video to see me test it out.
The third weapon I tested was the Solid Steel Knuckle Duster. This knuckle duster is pretty unique in the respect that it is made from one very heavy solid piece of carbon steel. Because of it's design, I thought it would be necessary to test it out to see the best way it should be held. Generally, there are two ways to hold a knuckle duster. You will see people either hold it in the way they would make a fist, or you will see them wear it higher on the knuckles and use it in more of a swiping fashion. This specific knuckle has a larger palm grip, which made it more comfortable to use in a swiping fashion. Watch the video to see my full explaination of how I tested these knuckles to determine the best way for me to hold them.
The fourth weapon I reviewed was the Dark Assassin Butterfly Knife. I've reviewed quite a few balisong over the years and this one is definitely one of the more simple models I've looked at. There are some things I really like about it. First off, I like the fact that it uses rivets instead of screws. Screws are nice in the respect that you can tighten or loosen them to the exact amount of play you want with you knife, but I prefer rivets because they stay a specific tightness throughout the entire lifespan of the knife. I also like the fact that this simple butterfly knife utilizes a standard latch instead of a spring latch. Spring latches definitely have some benefits to them, but I grew up using a standard latch and find that I can perform tricks the easiest with this simple latching system.

The last weapon I tested was the Desert Combat Karambit. If you've watched my videos before, you know that I absolutely love karambit knives and there are a couple of things I look for with the karambits I use. First off, I really like the G10 handle on this karambit. I feel like it gives me a really good grip with this knife and allows me to have proper control. I also like that the ring on the pommel has a little extension which gives you some added control when you are using it in extended grip. Generally, I prefer the ring on the pommel to be pretty plain, but I actually found the extension on this pommel to be fairly valuable. Be sure to watch the video to see a more detailed review and testing of this knife.
