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.
Dictionary defines the term
Unmoved by love or pity; Unceasing, as without
tough word, for tough people, needing tough equipment.
Thanks to the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces, and others, for
relentless pursuit of protecting freedom and using Relentless
Knives to help them along their way.
Back in the 1980's serrations on the top edge of a
knife became popular
until it was discovered that they were not very effective........then
they were more or less phased out.....
We are working hard to change that....not just by adding less than
useful serrations, but by testing every possible serration
configuration until we find ones that out perform all others.
This will make your knife twice as useful. Lot's of time, and trials go
into it....stay tuned as we are making progress.

peace) he and his men did have a nice surprise when visited by Country

Kill an American
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.
I just thought I would write to let them know what an American is, so
they would know when they found one.
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
American may also be a Comanche, Cherokee, Osage,
Blackfoot, Navaho, Apache, Seminole or one of the many other tribes
known as Native Americans.
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.
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.
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.
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

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.

doing so you would just be killing yourself. Because Americans are not
