    Good dual Self defense/utility knifes for a reasonable price?

    I would prefer one with a sheath that can strap to a belt or something. Also are throwing knifes practical? They would be cool to have but don't seem to have much use, other than being a cheap, legal though less effective replacement for a gun.
