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, Navaho, 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

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.

If your an Ebay shopper for Custom knives, here is a useful link that may be helpful in avoiding some of the fakes.
Before the CPM steels, edge holding had everything to do with the hardness of the steel. This has not changed much with 5160 or any of the basic carbon steels, but they are not made by the same process. Extra hardness does increase edge holding but also increases brittleness. It also makes the knife harder to sharpen in the field. So when you have a knife with RC 60 or 61 on the edge, and it's a basic or even alloy carbon steel you can expect brittleness which often equals breakage. It's just part of the territory. The CPM steels need not be as hard to retain their abrasion resistance, thus they are easier to sharpen, and are not as brittle when correctly prepared. These attributes go a long way in making your knife last longer and be stronger than ever before. The correctly prepared aspect is very important with the CPM steels, because they are not the same. With RC 60 and above hardness, they become very difficult to sharpen and can be just as brittle as the basic steels. Hard to sharpen is not a problem when your sitting at home, but in the field where you have a life line to cut, the extra time and effort can magnify.
So I'll end this here with these three points as paramount to end user satisfaction from a knife. Design......will it easily do the job your going to use it for the most. Steel......is it made from material that will endure what I plan to use it for. Steel preparation: Is the steel I choose prepared in a manner that will endure my primary intended use.
Extended experience in law enforcement on the warrant squad and moon lighting as a bounty hunter required that I kick in many of doors Not good for your feet and landlords hate it, but necessary in order to retrieve misguided individuals who were often stubborn as hell. Believe it or not, human beings on certain illicit substances feel almost no pain, and can squeeze through spaces as small as heat transfer registers, hiding inside walls,between joists,under floors, behind doors etc. Since once an action was started in such situations, the subject, sometimes a very dangerous one, could not simply stop in midstream and go get the proper tool. Belt carry of every conceivable tool was also not an option. So, the M4 Bounty Hunter knife idea was born and sort of been going ever since. It's a utility knife good at as many things as possible in a small super sturdy package. You can cut rope, pry open doors and windows, protect your self, hammer stuff, break glass and cut your dinner with it. It's small enough not to get in the way, clip it on /off your duty belt. Not something your average hunting knife is going to do well.
It's real important to select the right design and next the steel for your primary intended usage. If your a chef with a 10 knife collection to do your job the failure of one knife is not going to ruin your special feast. Not so for the soldier, policeman or rescue squad. Most of the cataloged Relentless knives are designed with military and police usage in mind. Not so much as weaponry, but useful tools that cut and pry, saw hammer and chop all in one package.
My focus is first toughness then edge retention. I figure a broken knife that can not be repaired is worse than a dull knife that can be sharpened.
The first one was 5160 steel, not a star in long term edge retention, but it has tremendous break resistance and it does cut well when kept sharp and remains very economical. Even so, some were not content with the extra sharpening chores required with 5160. The only way to make the 5160 knife have better edge holding was to forge and trip thermo quench etc. This improved the edge holding considerably and satisfied those who afforded it. It also improved the flexibility to a point that when Zone tempered it's almost impossible to break with human force alone. Steel has advanced considerably since then, and with the same focus I have put the advancements to work. CPM 3V is about the best steel I have seen with break resistance being first, and edge holding next.
