Woox Bad Boy knife

Woox, an outdoor company with North Carolina with Italian roots, is now shipping their new Bad Boy EDC fixed-blade knives.

The Bad Boy EDC collection is composed of two fixed-blade knife options. The first is a drop point version and the second has an Americanized tanto profile. Woox builds these knives with satin finished D2 steel and wraps them with American walnut handles. The sheaths provided for Bad Boy EDC fixed blade knives are crafted with Italian leather. Bad Boy knives feature a textured spine in order to provide more thumb and grip control while the knife is in the hand. Furthermore, the profile of the drop point version also includes a prominent choil that further stabilizes the knife in the hand. A choil is a half-moon shaped cut out that is typically found where the base of the blade and top of the handle of a knife meet. The half moon cut out is for the index finger of the hand the knife sits in. A choil provides an additional point of contact and can prevent the hand from slipping forward towards the keen edge of the blade, thus providing more safety. Choils are useful for tasks involving slippery or wet cutting work such as skinning game or cleaning fish.

Skills Check: Present Arms

We refer to the draw stroke as the presentation at Gunsite. It’s a better explanation than simply “drawing” the pistol, because it describes the act of presenting the pistol from the holster to the target or threat. In our “basic,” five-day pistol class we expect students to present the pistol and make hits on targets from 3 to 7 yards away in 1.5 seconds. Most students can do this in two or three days of training.
