The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
I am afraid I have to admit to having a knife on my bedside table at night .
No it is not really for self defence I mostly own small slipjoint's , I guess it would be better than nothing though .
half dozen pocket knives on the nightstand, along with 4 or 5 neckers, are as close as I get to carrying while asleep.
That is indeed a good question! I know I sleep with at least one beside me but like you it is a folder
Jan we should maybe both get Bark River Bravo 1's they would look a bit more impressive on the bedside table !!
When I go to bed at night I take my gun out of my pocket and put it on my nightstand next to my bed. My EDC knives, right now a Rough Rider folder and a Leatherman Micra, go on the dresser across from the foot of my bed along with my wallet and keys and such.
I figure any emergency at night, especially in the house, I will handle with a gun instead of a knife.
Right next to me is a 12 Gauge Pump Shotgun...within quick reach...I wear a Cold Steel Secret Edge Neck Knife and I currently have my Colonial "Tuckers Ravine" Automatic on my nightstand.
I sleep lightly, can awake at the sound of a chain on a gate, and can be outside and firing in 6 seconds.
I do have a Benchmade Griptilian in my night stand (well technically my night stand is the top of a dog kennel - long story - anyway . . .) but I can't imagine it would be my first choice for home defense. I also have a shotgun and a Glock ready to go too.
German Shepherd by the bed, not a knife but his teeth are sharp.
Wow some of you guy's aren't going to take any prisoners then !!
I think if I were able to own firearms I would be the same . I always did have a strange fancy for a Colt Python back in the day, but alas couldn't afford one when it was legal . Now that would be more impressive than a 3 inch slip joint .
I used to sleep with a knife under my pillow
