And, it very well might. The Jim Wagner Reality-Based Blade, manufactured by world famous knife manufacturer Böker, is the ultimate tactical folder for professionals for the last 12 years, and counting…
The Boker Outdoor Collection 2017 catalog just came out, and I am taking the liberty to show you two pages out of it that contains 9 of my knives that I have designed.
The original Jim Wagner Reality-Based Blade, on the top of page 110, product number 01BO051, is used by soldiers, police officers, bodyguards, and even civilians around the world. When you read about its features you’ll discover why. CLICK HERE to see a demonstration on YouTube.
For you Reality-Based Personal Protection students and instructors you’ll definitely want the Boker Plus RBB Training Tool. This training knife will show you “cuts,” “stabs,” and “blunt trauma” by applying red and blue lipstick to the industrial felt. And, when you’re not using the tool to show injuries you can use it without lipstick for other training exercises, because it is flexible rubber, yet firm enough to make the training realist. But, keep in mind, even thought this is the best tool for knife training you still need to use wrap-around eye protection anytime you train with training weapons. This product is also on page 110, at the bottom, product 02BO553T, and you can even buy a sheath with it. I designed this to be the same size and feel as the Jim Wagner Reality-Based Blade – Train as you fight. CLICK HERE to see the video.
On the second page, page 111, I have my popular Urban series. The top one is the original, about the size of a pen, and as sharp as a surgical scalpel. For many professionals, like undercover police officers and even teachers worried about a school shooting, this is the last resort defense weapon. The second one down, the one with the Multicam camouflage was the one I carried when I was a Master Sergeant with the Security Forces at Joint Forces Training Base in Southern Calfornia. I just retired from the Reserves in March. I liked this knife because it fit nicely in my pen sleeve pocket on my combat uniform, and the colors matched. The third one down is the Boker Plus Urban Survival Law Enforcement (LE) knife. Not only is it the size of a pen, and has a razor sharp blade, but it also has a handcuff key that can fold out, and the end of the ergonomic handle is a double pin lock so the handcuffs won’t tighten.
The final two Reality-Based Blades are the smaller version of page 110. These have buttons instead of thumb studs to open the blade. These two can be carried comfortable in a business suit, which I do, because they give off less of a weapons signature. The last knife on the bottom of the page, the Boker Plus Office Survival is the latest of the series. This is exactly what the name implies – it is for the office. It is great for cutting open boxes, used as a letter opener, or again, a last resort weapon if there is an active shooter about to come through the door and you have no choice but to ambush the killer using the Door Ambush technique I teach to my students in my one-day Terrorism Survival course. And, speaking of Terrorism Survival, my first seminar of the year, that is open to the public, is on the Training Schedule the Reality-Based Personal Protection website, in Paris, France. I’ll be putting up more dates in the next couple of weeks. CLICK HERE to go to the Training Schedule.
