Gerber 5803 Guardian Backup. Remember the very first time you saw an image of the Stealth Bomber? With it's aggressive lines and matte black paint job? Well the Guardian Back-Up probably belongs on board that bird. Because the overall look and attitude is much the same.
This is a professional fixed blade knife that takes a mighty serious cut at self defense. It features blackened... and therefore non-reflective... stainless steel in a 3/4 in. tang blade. It's lightweight. It's compact. It's effortless to carry, and agile to use. Importantly, the Santoprene®-covered nylon handle is very much at home in the hand of those who take on life's nastier tasks.
Don't overlook the patented sheath. It lets you adjust the withdraw tension to suit your individual style. Clip it to your boot or belt or your strap, and you'll never be without a reliable back-up.

Sleek design is superb for deep concealed carry. Feels good in hand and was very sharp. The adjustable sheath is a plus.
This is a Great EDC Knife. Easy to Carry and fits the Hand Well. Sharp and Made IN THE USA.
I have worn it for several days in my Ariat Workhog boots and I forget it is there until I take my boots off at the end of the day. It is very comfortable to wear and has never come out of the sheath when unwanted. I love the adjustability of the sheath. This is a great backup knife.
I own several boot knives and this is hands down my favorite. The knife itself is a great design and makes a great backup weapon. The sheath is great because it can be worn on the boot, belt or as a necklace. The adjuster makes it so the knife is easy or hard to withdraw which is a nice thing if you do alot of running. Buy it, you'll be glad you did.
Small, strong, sharper than a razor, a double edged dagger. Handle fits the hand well, no slipping. Adjustable scabbard release pressure, two mounting options. Not for kids.
As soon as I got this knife in the mail I was in love with it. The sheath is a polymer and is adjustable for tension, which is nice because it increases your options on where to carry it. The blade out of the box was super sharp, at least sharp enough to shave a little patch of hair off the underside of my arm. It is also perfectly balanced at the hilt so it has the capacity to be a thrower with a little practice (can't say I'd do a lot of it because it doesn't weigh all that much and I don't want to nick up the double edge). I carry it around on the inside of my waistband on my left hip and no one has ever noticed until I go to use it to actually cut something. GREAT BUY!
