The Urban Pal push dagger should be standard equipment for survival in today's urban jungle. At 3/4 of an ounce, it's perfectly at home in a pocket or purse and can be easily attached to a key ring, or hung around the neck. With a 1 1/2" long blade, it's big enough to get the job done and its unique handle allows you to really put your weight into its point or edge. For added convenience, the Urban Pal push knife comes with a tough, Secure-Ex sheath, to safely house the blade yet make it available for instant access. Comes complete with Secure-Ex sheath.

If you want a last ditch weapon, you might want to try the urban edge, in my opinion it has the minimum blade length for that purpose. However, if you need a small edge for utility tasks, this is your blade!
If I had a utility purpose for a small push-knife, I would have gone for a higher-end model. In my case, however, it serves the same purpose as the hat-pin I used to keep in the visor of my car: something small, sharp, and hidden that I can get to quickly if someone reaches in my car or grabs my arm while I'm out walking. (I live in a city, and personal assaults are all too common.) When on foot, I keep it in the watch pocket of my jeans, where the corner of the sheath lodges in the seam; when I pull the handle, the knife comes out while the sheath stays behind. I don't expect to take down a 250-pound mugger with it, but the secure grip and sharp blade mean I can jab a hand or an arm and give an attacker a chance to regret his actions. And honestly, if you laid that wicked little blade across the back of someone's hand, you'd do some major damage.
In short, I'm completely satisfied with this knife, and I hope I never need to find out whether I'd actually use it, or what would happen if I did. :)
I was able to find an Emerson Mini A-100 which was unavailable or back ordered elsewhere. The price was good and shipping was very quick (two days). I will definitely buy though them again.
