A good sturdy knife can allow you to escape from your burning motor vehicle.
Bush Craft is long term survival, over coming your environment with little or no equipment., and no foreseeable rescue. Either way, a knife that resists breakage with good edge holding and ability to adapt to a wide variety of tasks could be your most valued companion.
Check out the Catalog and Details page for a variety of models, and details on steel, options, ordering instructions etc.
In a situation of no re-supply, your knife could become more valuable than a truck load of gold.

Relentless Knives,have found their way all over the world. In many places the term relentless is more than a brand name on a knife. Websters Dictionary defines the term re-lent-less; Unmoved by love or pity: Unceasing, as without mercy. A tough word, for tough people, needing tough equipment.
Thanks to the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces and others, for their relentless pursuit of protecting freedom, and using Relentless Knives to help them along their way.

Relentless knives believes in the Protection and Defense of the Constitution of the United States of America By Peter Ferrara, an associate professor of law at the George Mason University School of Law. September 25, 2001 9:20 a.m. National Review To Kill an American You probably missed it in the rush of news last week, but there was actually a report that someone in Pakistan had published in a newspaper an offer of a reward to anyone who killed an American, any American. So I just thought I would write to let them know what an American is, so they would know when they found one. An American is English, or French, or Italian, Irish, German, Spanish, Polish, Russian or Greek. An American may also be Canadian, Mexican, African, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Australian, Iranian, Asian, or Arab, or Pakistani or Afghan. An American may also be a Comanche, Cherokee, Osage, Blackfoot, Navajo, Apache, Seminole or one of the many other tribes known as Native Americans. An American is Christian, or he could be Jewish, or Buddhist, or Muslim. In fact, there are more Muslims in America than in Afghanistan . The only difference is that in America they are free to worship as each of them chooses. An American is also free to believe in no religion. For that he will answer only to God, not to the government, or to armed thugs claiming to speak for the government and for God. An American lives in the most prosperous land in the history of the world. The root of that prosperity can be found in the Declaration of Independence , which recognizes the God given right of each person to the pursuit of happiness. An American is generous. Americans have helped out just about every other nation in the world in their time of need, never asking a thing in return. When Afghanistan was over-run by the Soviet army 20 years ago, Americans came with arms and supplies to enable the people to win back their country! As of the morning of September 11, Americans had given more than any other nation to the poor in Afghanistan. Americans welcome the best of everything...the best products, the best books, the best music, the best food, the best services. But they also welcome the least. The national symbol of America , The Statue of Liberty , welcomes your tired and your poor, the wretched refuse of your teeming shores, the homeless, tempest tossed. These in fact are the people who built America . Some of them were working in the Twin Towers the morning of September 11, 2001 earning a better life for their families. It's been told that the World Trade Center victims were from at least 30 different countries, cultures, and first languages, including those that aided and abetted the terrorists. So you can try to kill an American if you must. Hitler did. So did General Tojo, and Stalin, and Mao Tse-Tung, and other blood-thirsty tyrants in the world. But, in doing so you would just be killing yourself. Because Americans are not a particular people from a particular place. They are the embodiment of the human spirit of freedom
Knife collectors write to me wanting to know if I can identify or certify a knife. Making a photo history has been a goal since I started making knives. So here goes. There will be many knives not pictured at first as I have accumulated far more photos than expected.
Some very early Knives by Daniel M. Certo with various handles, various steels, bear this mark made with steel stamp 3 D's. Some times the D's are not so close together as back then the stamp was just rotated three times. Note: All of these knives were hand forged over a coal fire, not just to make better knives, I had no pro knife grinder so the steel had to be reduced with the hammer.
Warm Thanks to YOU my wonderful customers, past, present and future.

Thanks for all the Great work here, but mostly Thanks your service to our great country and for your work in the preservation of the freedom of throughout the world.
So what ever happened to Major Humphrey? Is he still testing your knives?
Major Humphrey is now Lt. Col Humphrey, and did lots of real life hard use testing and writing here for almost 10 years. He is still in the Army and doing well. After his promotion, his MOS changed and he has been flying all over the country and world in service to the Army and our country.

Knife Rights NRA Board Endorsements
While Knife Rights is proud to count many members of the NRA Board of Directors as our friends and supporters, Knife Rights does not normally endorse candidates in an NRA election. However, we make an exception when they are members of our Board of Directors, Advisory Board or celebrity supporters.
Todd J. Rathner is Knife Rights' Director of Legislative Affairs--our lobbyist. He has been instrumental in our outstanding legislative success to date, totaling 22 pro-knife laws enacted in 15 states and 6 anti-knife bills defeated. Todd's efforts in bringing Knife Rights' issues to the attention of the NRA Board and staff has been invaluable and it is certainly in our best interests to see him continue in this role. Beyond that, he works tirelessly in support of the Second Amendment. Click for more info on Todd.
Graham Hill is the Chairman of the NRA Legislative Policy and Federal Affairs Committees and is an advisor to Knife Rights on legislative issues in Congress. His comprehensive understanding of, and insights into, what makes Congress tick and how to get things done on The Hill are extremely helpful to the NRA and to Knife Rights, particularly as we work to pass the Knife Owners' Protection Act including repeal of the Federal Switchblade Act (H.R. 84). Graham's dedication to the Second Amendment is second to none and he deserves your vote. Click for more info on Graham.
"I whole-heartedly endorse the work of Knife Rights and support their mission" -- The Gunny
R. Lee (The Gunny) Ermey has been a very vocal supporter of Knife Rights and takes every opportunity to promote Knife Rights as he travels the country making celebrity appearances. We very much appreciate The Gunny's active support for Knife Rights and a Sharper Future™ for all Americans as well as his unwavering commitment to defending the Second Amendment.
Knife Rights encourages our members who are also NRA voting members to vote for Todd, Graham and The Gunny and reminds you that NRA Board Election ballots must be received by the NRA no later than April 9, 2017.
Repeal of Federal Switchblade Act Introduced in Congress
Originally conceived and authored by Knife Rights in 2010 and first introduced in 2013, the Knife Owners' Protection Act of 2017 (KOPA) now includes repeal of the archaic 1958 Federal Switchblade Act and has been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives by Rep. Andy Biggs (AZ-05). KOPA will remove the irrational restrictions on interstate trade in automatic knives that are legal to one degree or another in 40 states, while also protecting the right of knife owners to travel throughout the U.S. without fear of prosecution under the myriad patchwork of state and local knife laws.
Knife Rights Chairman Doug Ritter said, "The Federal Switchblade Act was an asinine idea when it was passed in 1958 in a wave of Hollywood-inspired politically motivated hysteria and has only become more irrelevant as time has passed. The majority of states have always allowed switchblade possession and with Knife Rights' repeal of switchblade bans in 11 states in the past seven years, fully four-fifths of the states now allow switchblade possession to one degree or another. With a Congress and Administration that may be inclined to finally rid the country of this abomination, it is way past time to repeal this law that only serves to interfere with lawful trade and commerce."
Ritter continued, "from the start Knife Rights has fought successfully to defend the right to carry a knife, an essential tool, in the individual states, cities and towns. The Knife Owners' Protection Act represents a key step to protect law-abiding knife owners simply passing through areas like New York City where possessing many commonly owned knives that are legal elsewhere may result in arrest and prosecution."
Besides legalizing interstate trade in popular automatic knives, the measure allows for the secure and safe transportation of knives through jurisdictions where the mere ownership of a certain type of knife is enough to bring arrest and cr
"KOPA will simply provide safe harbor to someone traveling with knives where they can legally be possessed at the points of origin and ultimate destination," Ritter emphasized, "the bill requires they be locked up during travel in states where they would be illegal. It eliminates the constant jeopardy of criminal prosecution for simply passing through an area. It offers no protection to anyone engaged in criminal activity."
Knife Rights' KOPA has teeth to defend those who travel under its protection because it also provides penalties for law enforcement, prosecutors and others who ignore the protections provided. Similar to the protections and penalties generally provided in USC 1983 to those whose civil rights are violated, a falsely arrested citizen can be compensated for the expense of defending themselves from an unwarranted violation of the rights Congress has protected in KOPA.
Getting this bill introduced is only the first step. We need your help to gain additional co-sponsors. Please call or email your Representative and urge them to co-sponsor this commonsense legislation. You can find your Representative at: http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/
Here's a model email or call script that you can use. We strongly suggest you keep it simple and to the point:
I support the Knife Owners' Protection Act of 2017. I urge you to become a co-sponsor of this commonsense legislation that will protect my rights and the rights of all knife owners to travel throughout the U.S. without fear of prosecution under the myriad of state and local knife laws and it also repeals outdated federal provisions related to switchblade knives which burden citizens and lawful commerce in these popular and widely available tools that are legal to possess in 40 states.
