- What’s a push dagger?
A short dagger with a “T” handle design, this fixed blade is an excellent discreet self-defense weapon. The generally compact size makes it easily concealable, and it’s used with a punching or pushing force gripped between the middle and index fingers in a closed fist.
- Where did push daggers come from originally?
The earliest known forms of push daggers are thought to have originated in India with the development of kataras, or punch daggers, in the mid-16th century. Among the designs found today is the American push dagger, which became well known in the 1800s. Increased numbers of Americans began carrying push daggers as personal defense weapons during this time.

Excellent push knife
I bought two years ago. Loved them. Lost one. So, of course, I had to buy another. They are great and very handy if you need some protection. Buy one and you will not be disappointed.Review of: Combat Commander Mini Black Push Dagger

perfect concealed carry weapon
I have worn my belt knife for years. It does not matter if in a suit or jeans it looks great. It is really nice to know I have something if things go bad. Many places you cannot carry but this is so well hidden that no one knows you have it. I have actually worn mine so much that I had to get a second belt.
