Spyderco's Warrior fixed-blade knife is made from tough and highly corrosion-resistant H1 steel. It is a skeletonized full tang knife with a glass-breaking end cap. Its blade guard is pressure fit and secured by a glass-filled nylon handle
What's distinctive about the Warrior is the "S" curvature of the blade. It's designed to give you full cutting power when you flex or straighten the elbow so that the blade "flows."
The "Spyder" serrations on the reverse of the blade serve a couple of purposes. First, they allow you to use the blade to "trap" an opponent's extremities or to said extremity. Their other use is cutting webbing, harnesses, seat belts, and other hard-to-cut materials such as rope.
You will find the Warrior is tough enough to be used for many other jobs it was not designed for. Because of the mechanical "work hardening" and the full tang, this knife will make a good light duty pry bar, although that's not its suggested use. The pommel is a solid triangle that can be used to break windows, serve as an impact weapon, or in an emergency as a lightweight hammer.
To carry such a fine knife you need a solid sheath. I've been carrying the Warrior in a great one from Spec Ops Brand. It can be mounted on a MOLLE vest, hang on a belt, or can be attached to most thigh rigs. On the sheath is a front pouch that will hold a pocket tool as well as several feet of parachute cord to be used as an emergency cord.

Safariland: M71 Magazine Pouch and RLS Light
I was interested to test out two new Safariland items I saw at the SHOT Show. The first is the M71 Magazine Pouch. Now you may say, what's the big deal about a magazine pouch? Well, how about the fact that the pouch will fit Glock 21 magazines, pocket tools, and small flashlights? It's not limited to your average duty weapon magazine.
