Mr. Emerson,

Thank you for sharing your experience in this forum.

Could you explain the tactical value of a dagger style double blade knife vs. a single blade?

Is there a significant advantage?

Dear Honor Bound,

Thank for your kind remark.

I see no advantage tactically, of a dagger over a single edge blade. It's probably more of a psychological thing than a practical thing. A dagger is usually more delicate at the tip than most single edge knives and for most of a knives duties, including self defense, sharp and strong, beats sharp and weak every time.

My Best Regards,

Ernest R. Emerson
