The Benchmade 176 Special Operations Combatives Program (SOCP) Dagger is not only perfect for concealment; it also creates space on the ground when used effectively.
Benchmade's SOCP knife has a ribbed ring on the end of a thin, dagger handle so you can grab it with either hand. The sheath extends up the side of the ring making it very difficult for anyone other than the carrier to access. This allows the hand that is holding the knife to transition to a handgun and, most important, there is no disconnect between the knife and gun. The ring enhances the knife, making accessibility easy and fast on the draw.
The knife's thin design allows you to hide it behind a magazine, pouch, or easily conceal it behind a belt with a shirt bloused over. No matter what position you are in, be it standing or on the ground, all you need to do is hook your finger on the ring and the knife is in your hand.
If you are carrying a handgun concealed in a warm climate, it can be hard to get the weapon out fast. If you are grabbed from behind, in a bad position on the ground, or thrown over an object, this knife will help you get to a safe leverage position on an attacker before introducing a firearm. If you transition in a bad leverage position, the firearm may come out of battery. You may not know where the rounds are going. Your retention of the firearm is weak. Using the SOCP knife makes you safer and more effective at close range.
