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
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.

S30V steel satin finish with blue steel guard Ivory Micarta handles and more watch this news letter for updates
50 cuts, 1" manila rope,3.4" blade.....Yep
customer asked if a compact Relentless knife, 3.5" blade, ordered for
use in his work as a horse trainer,would cut 1" manila rope 50
timeswithout resharpening. His job requires emergency thick rope cutting on a daily basis.
I was sure a knife made from 5160 steel without
enhanced heat treatments, which increases the price to that
of a stock s30V knife would have problems doing this. .
I knew that S30v with stock heat treatment is hard to beat
in the categorys that make knives useful tools, and is a
very effective cutter, but, fifty one inch thick cuts with a 3.5"
blade without even touch up is a job that most of todays most popular
non exotic steels may find difficult..
So, I figured some cuttting tests were warranted in order to be sure the knife would handle the job.
I contacted Ian, knowing he had several knives that would be perfect for the test.
Since time was short, Ian did the tests within a day, and returned excellent photos of the ordeal.
A report was really not required here, as the photos speak for themselves.
Ready with a Relentless M4 Viper....SHARP....!
That's it.The knife an M4 Viper with a 3.5
Blade , Zone tempered, RC 58 on the cutting
edge, powered but Ian Humphreys persistent hands performed the
job with ease,, and without resharpening.
and later sliced lunch. Thanks Ian.
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 ....Super strong.

Major Humphrey is out there, putting Relentless knives to the test.
His hard work and excellent feedback allow me to offer you knives that
perform, in many environments.
One of the longest projects ever is the Back Packer/Water knife.
We are working hard on this project, and Maj. Humphrey has put this particular design through an extensive battery of tests
So what is the hold up....seems like a good enough knife.
Well maybe it is, but I'm not yet satisfied.
So far the design of this
knife has lead to several real popular larger models, that work great,
but when you really think about
the sport of Kayaking,
were you literally tie yourself into a little boat that is not
real judicious about flipping upside down and staying that way while
your still strapped to it.
I think the knife you carry to free yourself from this unpredictable
and often very dangerous situation, should be all that it can be no
matter how long it takes to get it ....perfect.
knife should stay on your hand while you are doing other things and
should have the ability to cut thick rope, nylon webbing and even thick
boat plastic very quickly.
There are lots of other concerns, so, we are taking our time .
Several Sheath systems are being considered, and Ian has come up with some interesting new cord wrap
ideas that we will outline and include in the final report and product.
We are also looking to make the knife great
Backpacking. . Seems easy enough, but what happens when your day hike
turn to krap, and you find yourself in an unexpected survival
Will your Swiss army knife do everything
required to keep you alive until help arrives.
Keep watching, as when the project is complete, we expect to have a knife that you won't ever want to part with.
The style may take a turn or two in the process, as the knife below is a proto of the next phase of the

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.
an Australian dentist wrote an editorial the following day to let
everyone know what an American is so they would know when they found
one. (Good one, mate!!!!)
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
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.
welcome the best of everything...the best products, the best books, the
best music, the best food, the best services.
they also welcome the least.
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
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.
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
