Committed to Excellence
Designed  for Maximum Efficiency
Tested by Professional Soldiers

Well, The M1i design is still in the works. Seems like it's taking forever, but, no. Good designs like good knives take time to make, test etc. When done they can last for centuries.

This particular design is actually a combination of stuff that I have wanted for a long time, and since it's not laser cut etc. just the shape is very
time consuming.
I like a double guard on a knife for lots of reasons.  I also like lots of attachment points, because  if you fail to take your 26 foot U-haul truck with you to the outback. you might need to use your knife for lots more than just cutting.

I know, lots of knife ghurus, say that  multi purpose , survival type knives with teeth on top, and hooks and holes are at best,  masters of none.  But again, when you  must travel
light,, into uncharted territory, like battlefields, urban jungles, mountain trails etc, it just seems like good common sense to be as equipped as possible.

While developing the M1i it has come to light, that at least some  prempting  is required, so I am working on different configurations for different supposed circumstances.
Since these are all individually handmade, when complete, you will have quite a few choices of options to fit your particular needs. For instance, top serrations are handy, and can be configured to saw wood, cut rope, cut wire, cut metal and on and on.

They can also be omitted for those that don't like them.
STAY Tuned, ....and Thanks for reading the Enews!

West Point ....In the Morning

 Ian likes the high ground, best vantage point for sound Tactic's

' Here are some sun rise shots this morning from my favorite view point here at the Academy.  It is from a redoubt (small fort site) built during the Revolutionary war.  It looks down onto the main part of the Academy.
In his off hours he's busy testing and reporting on Relentless Knives.
Why?    We are Committed to Excellence! You won't find Relentless Knives everywhere, in fact, production is all by hand, and .......well it's a slow process to say the least.
But, well worth the time, as they are made to last a lifetime, and endure.


Relentless Knives are contagious
Ian's  wife has  been drafted into  the test and review service.

The Capt. designed  a  knife that fits her hand very well, and I made it.
It's just big enough to be very useful, can be carried as a  pocket or neck knife , and has a few custom touches like mosaic pins and exotic wood handles. It also has the West Point  Crest etched on the blade.. Watch the Enews for more  info on  this and other non catalog Customs.


Extreme Testing produces Extreme Durability and a better knife for you.

Don't try this with your knife, intentional destruction will void your lifetime replacement warranty.
But, we do it all the time in order to see just how
much abuse our knives will withstand.

Ian figures no amount of abuse is to much, so
a bit of rifle fire produced some interesting results on a knife that withstood bending to almost 90 degrees
and returned to straight with no deformity

The 7.62 x 39 Bullet had more devastating effects
on this particular knife, but was not so bad on another tested.

Watch for the complete report as well as other interesting articles in the test and review pages of

..Direct Hit. Ian hit this M4 Bounty  Hunter dead on with his AKM.
A small crack , but not bad for such abuse..
Please don't try this at home,  as gun fire will be considered extreme
abuse and void your lifetime warranty.
Ian doesn't seem to care....he is more concerned that American Soldiers who carry Relentless Knives get the best equipment available.

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 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!!!!)
 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.
