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.

  Serrations testing
 by: Maj Ian Humphrey
              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.

The Sgt respectfully declined  receiving the girls as Christmas gifts.....LOL as he is married, but just having them visit was  a
real treat.  The Sgt was nice enough to share a few photo's with us.

Here is a story that's been circulating via email and submitted by: Lee Brewer

Marine  vs   Taliban      

A large group of Taliban soldiers are moving down a road when they hear a voice call from behind a sand-dune.
"One Marine is better than ten Taliban."

The Taliban commander quickly sends 10 of his best soldiers over the dune whereupon a gun-battle breaks out and continues for a few minutes, then silence.
The voice then calls out, "One Marine is better than a hundred Taliban soldiers."
Furious, the Taliban commander sends his next best 100 troops over the dune and instantly a huge gunfight commences.

After 10 minutes of battle, again silence.
The Marine calls out, "One Marine is better than one thousand Taliban".
The enraged Taliban Commander musters a thousand fighters and sends them over the dune. Cannon, rocket and machine gun fire rings out as a huge battle is fought. Then silence
Finally one wounded Taliban fighter crawls back over the dune and with his dying words tells his commander, "Don't send any more men, its a trap.
There's two of them.

          After Action Review  of Soldier’s Knife Loss

     This is a brief After Action Review (AAR) to discuss the details of a
recent Relentless brand knife becoming lost in Afghanistan by an American          
Soldier.  The intent is to learn from the experience and to pass along ideas
to prevent similar losses from occurring in the future.

 An American Soldier (we are keeping his identity off for security reasons) recently bought a Relentless M1i Interceptor to accompany him to a
deployment in Afghanistan.

 He wore the knife inverted, in the provided

leather sheath with a Tek Loc fastener, on his body armor.  He also wore a standard D ring carabineer on the same side of his knife to attach his weapon (single point harness style).  While conducting nighttime training
operations in heavy snow fall, the weapon must have rubbed against the snap
and undid the retaining strap on the sheath.  While the knife was dummy
corded to his vest, the cord was either cut or came undone.  Once the
Soldier realized his lost, he returned to the area where the knife was lost
but was unable to recover it.

Learning Points
     This is a very unfortunate situation that resulted in the loss of a valuable piece of equipment. 
There was nothing defective with the sheath or

retaining strap, it simply became undone when the rifle came in contact with
the retaining strap snap.  The single point harness that was used to secure
the rifle to the Soldier’s body armor is a popular and effective method of
carrying the weapon. 

What I would suggest from this situation is whenever

you are using a single point carrying system that you do not use an inverted
sheath on the same side as the weapon.  No matter what retaining system the
sheath has, there is always going to be a strong possibility that the weapon
will undue the retaining strap.  If you want to carry your knife inverted,
then place it on your non-firing side.  Another option would be to carry the
knife upright on your firing side.  This way the knife will most likely not
fall out of the sheath if the retaining strap is accidentally undone.

RELENTLESS KNIVES are 100% handmade by me in my shop.
Each knife receives large amounts personal of attention and care that is just not available in a factory made knife.

Options include hand forging which makes a strong knife,into a Super strong. knife

 I am working on NEW models for the 2008 catalog. You will see prototypes and catalog variants in the next few months as I prepare NEW and improved models . Some present models will be canceled, some will be improved, and of course some will stay as the reliable and popular models they have been for years.

Will my order be done before the due date........?

My delivery time is very short considering the large number of orders; this is because of the method I use when taking orders. If  I cannot complete the knife in 16 weeks or less I don't take the order. This works well as I complete quite a few knives each day.

With that being said, your knife is on schedule.
Thanks for your patience and  understanding.

   Your knife, when complete, will last a lifetime , and perhaps with a little care, centuries afterward.

The time it takes me to complete the project is required to insure your knife is the best it can be.
Your questions, comments and further inquiries are always welcomed.

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                                     Tiananmen Square, Taiwan independence , Falun Gong                                      .
