I purchased the CQB Aluminum trainer primarily to have an addition to my training knives set. Upon having a feel of the knife at hand, I immediately realized that it could also be used as an EDC (Everyday Carry) self defense tool. Unlike knives, this tool/trainer has a retention ring, has no sharp edges and is very lightweight. Fit and finish is perfect. The jimping in the tool/trainer is functional. The tool, since it is color blue is non threatening. In the right hands of a trained individual, you can use this tool/trainer as a compliance/control device and an impact weapon (like a kubaton). I wish the trainer came with its own sheath. Overall, I highly recommend this product.
CQB Tool was a design concept envisioned by Mr. Greg Thompson of H2H / Team ROC of Fayetteville / Fort Bragg area - http://www.ussocp.com/. Mr. Thompson developed the new combatives program for US Army Special Operations Forces. The CQB Tool or "transition tool" is used to compliment this program by providing a slim easily stowed knife with rapid aquisition for, "get the heck off me", grappeling situations encountered in a CQB fight. The blue trainer made of 6061 aluminum with anodized coating fits the same CQB Tool sheath so the operator can switch out the "live" knife without adjusting his gear. No sheath provided with trainer.
