Custom Knife

-Pain Wrench
-Choil Guard
-Two Position Lock

The thorn is used to open the knife with either thumb.
When the knife is closed, the thorn can also be used to scratch, scrape, and strike targets.

The curve indent area on the spine of the blade is called a Pain Wrench and it is used for martial arts techniques such as trapping, parrying, inflicting pain and joint locks.

The finger choil becomes a choil guard for safe closing of the blade.

The idea is for the knife to have 2 locks providing 2 locking positions. The 1st one would be a C shaped liner lock that will prevent the blade from moving up or down. The 2nd lock would be a lockback.

The 1st locking position will be at a 45o angle making a pistol grip.
This will allow the blade to deploy slightly faster than normal, because of the shorter distance the blade needs to travel to lock.

Sketch of the knife

This is a knife I designed, inspired by the numerous tactical folding knives that I have studied.

About Us

K4S is a martial arts interface consisting of stick, knife and empty hand.

Like a modern Jeet Kune Do.

Sensei Yasu AKA Wampire
Owner/operator of "The Dojo" San Antonio Texas
Rising Tide Martial Arts Assistant Instructor Austin Texas
Awarded blue belt from Carlos Machado
Assistant MMA coach at TABMOC fight team

Wampire proudly follows the STRAIGHT EDGE life style because to him martial arts is more than just fighting skills.
His teaching style is similar to the backyard type of training that Bruce Lee and Mr. Miyagi preferred.
He founded the K4S system, which looks like a dark vampire ninja blade style but it's really a modern day Jeet Kune Do which has integrated martial arts styles from around the globe.
