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.

We make form fit kydex sheaths for TOPs M4X Punisher knife
I admire your work and im really considering purchasing. I had a few questions. What kind of grind do you put on the M1A Is it hollow ground?
The grind is best described as a Tri a syemetrical, sabre grind, aka semi hollow grind. It looks like a hollow grind, but is not thin like a full hollow grind. Of course the name comes from the type of sword and for hundreds of years a military weapon. Strength and durability are primary. With a full hollow grind, you get a super thin edge which is great for shaving, surgery etc, but not for heavy duty chopping and cutting into difficult materials. The sabre grind maintains the full thickness of the stock though out the center of the knife which is considerably more durable than a flat or hollow grind, then reduces to a cutting edge. The edge is of course thin enough for hundreds of cutting chores, and durable enough to resist being easily damaged.
As for my Trademark, Tri A S part of the definition, the knife is ground differently on each side, which results in a triangular midsection in the blade. This gives you a very strong and sharp point for extreme durability, as well as greatly increasing the resistance to lateral forces. Knives are tools, and come in many variations to perform different jobs.
So your primary intended use becomes very important when selecting the right tool for the job. If you need a good skinning knife, I would not recommend most Relentless knives as cataloged but would design and build you a knife considerably different. With that said, you certainly could use many of my models for skinning etc, and expect it to do the job. Just not as well as a knife designed for that specific purpose. I use the example of a Jeep vs a Corvette. Both are vehicles that will transport you, but there are differences.
Dan, I"m a huge fan and love your work. I"m torn between ordering the M4 Bolo and M1A. If I go M1A, I"m thinking 9.5 inch blade length is a nice size. I see the bolo comes in at 8 inch length. If you could only have one of these knives as an all around tool and badass survival knife, which would you recommend? Thanks for your advice and are you currently at a 16 week build time?
The 9.5 to 10 inch blade on either knife gives excellent balance, and yes you can have that length on the M4 Bolo. Extra blade length is + 10.00 per inch with all steel types.
The M4 Bolo is for sure a knife that will clear your camp site, build you a sturdy wood shelter, and much more. The front of the blade near the point is slightly thicker which gives you a more powerful blow on trees etc as well as reducing fatigue. Your hand is still protected via the shape of the front finger guard. The only thing the Bolo won't do well that the M1A will, is impalement. This may or not be an issue, depending on the situation. If the knife is intended for tactical use and Close Quarters Battle, then the M1A may do better depending on skill and fighting methods.
A note on the pommel and handle shape of both knives, and many of my other models. As stated in many places on my web site, Relentless knives are made with military and police use in mind. This means that although they have hundreds of uses, the designs keep military survival primary. So, even though the M4 Bolo and M1A make great bush hogs, and camping tools, one of the main comments I get in random reviews is that the pommel is not as comfortable for long term heavy chopping as it might be with a different shape. This is true, and the knife would be shaped as such if that were it's primary purpose. But the pommel and handle of these knives is shaped so that when the knife is held in the backhanded CQB mode, the index finger is protected, and the pommel can be used quite effectively for tactical, non lethal or otherwise direct punches. This design actually gives you a multi purpose impliment allowing the pommel to be deployed as an effective impact weapon, glass breaker, and hammer. The shape also lends itself to quick grip changes from backhand to sabre mode. Finally in sabre mode, the slight hook at the end of the handle stops the knife from easily leaving the hand. As for which knife? Well, The M1A has a cross guard and the M4 Bolo does not. Cross guards come from the days of sword fighting. I like it because it protects the hand from the blade, and can come in handy for tying the knife to other things. If it's your only tool in a survival situation the cross guard goes a long way in making sure you do not end up with a self inflicted wound. In back handed CQB it can also be used as a non lethal punch tool. Same with the pommel. That's about it from my view point. Either will make a useful tool that with a bit of care will yield a few or more lifetimes of hard work.
