Can someone toss me a few good places to buy marking knives.
DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT train with real knives that have sheaths on them, Ive seen that fail horribley.
LOL, no intentions of that. Been using for a while but really people do that?
I suspect anyone daft enough to need that advice is too daft to heed it.
EDIT: I'm a big fan of this site: www.takknife.com
I know a BB who was testing for his second or third degree BB, well they couldnt find the training knofe soooo.... Yea they used a real K-Bar and figured it was ok because they had a sheath on it. And since it was a BB test they were going hard and you know what happened at that point.
Trip to emergency room a few stitches and a potentially life threating injury.::Alien:
The same guy had like three ribs cracked by the same instructor during a routine hip toss btw...I guess ya just had to be there right.
Please tell me this wasnt Zack?
If it was then that story needs to go into the Zack thread: http://www.martialartsplanet.com/forums/showthread.php?t=123209
We will not have Bujingodai's thread derailed.
Now, about those training knives MAP denizens....
I really like the sharkee knives, and some of them come with a "marking edge" if you want to chalk your blades. You can do the same thing with the standard models if you use lipstick or something similar.
I also like these knives, but I don't know how they work as a marking knife.
I use Nok knives, and you can chalk them so they leave fairly decent marks. I also have Nok machetes, but they're a bit weighty for hard contact...
The site I linked has Sharkee and Bogner training blades. (I haven't seen the Bogner ones elsewhere, though I daresay they're out there). In addition to the polycarbonate(?) training blades, two of which I've got.
Nok Knives have quickly become the go to knife for experts wanting a great training tool.

do you chalk the edges or lipstick them?
Are Nok's still making the Buzzard? Looks like an affordable option t o the shocknife.
