Operation Ward 57
Walter Reed Army Medical Center (WRAMC) in Washington DC is the first stop for many of America's returning wounded service members from Iraq and Afghanistan.  Known as "the amputee ward", the orthopedic Ward 57 at WRAMC houses some of the most severely injured patients for weeks or even months. The painful sacrifice of losing one or more limbs is the new battle these service members and their families now fight.

Operation Ward 57 was started to have a direct way for individuals and companies to show their support and raise funds for these courageous men and women who have given so much.
The program is run through pro-football player Kerry Carter's THINK BIG FOUNDATION, 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, Tax ID: 20-196-2446, in partnership with Atmosphere Artist Management LLC.  This is a grass-roots, volunteer effort. Each person who buys a T-shirt, not only shows their support, but directly contributes to items for the Ward, patients, family members and staff.

                               The Relentless M4X                                 
Knife Report:
by: Major Ian Humphrey
     Relentless Knives  most extreme design yet: the M4X..  My first impression of this knife is that it is more like a tactical meat cleaver than traditional knife.  The blade is 8 inches long, and looks and feels a lot larger.  This knife is designed for extreme use and I intended to test this as much as possible.  Besides normal cutting and chopping duties, the M4X can also serve rather well as a weapon against two and four legged creatures.
First Impressions
     This is not a dainty knife!  The entire blade is ¼” thick and made from clay tempered 5160 tool steel.  Dan does all his own heat treating and uses the same techniques discovered by the samurai sword makers of Japan to create a differently tempered edge: hard at the edge to remain sharp longer, and softer along the spine to allow for extreme lateral forces without harming the steel (cheaper knives will break if you stand on them, not a Relentless knife).  Besides the eight inch blade, the M4X features a short section of saw teeth, a large flat area for baton use, a unique lip along the top of the edge for gripping pot handles or pulling objects, and a hawk’s bill on the exposed butt of the knife to aid in maintaining blade control during snap cuts and heavy chopping.  The M4X also features  canvas micarta handles that offer a solid grip area and are impervious to the elements.  The knife comes with a hand stitched leather sheath with large accessory pocket and split belt loops (to prevent the sheath from moving around your belt).
In the field
     Since this knife is designed for extreme use, I wanted to take it out on several outings to test its features.  While this is a large knife, it rode comfortably on my belt during several hikes through the mountains.  The large pocket on the sheath was a handy storage area for a sharpening rod, multi tool, or folding knife.  While in the woods, I tested the knives on several different mediums.  While this knife is a chopper at heart, it performed surprisingly well in regular cutting tasks.  I first tested the edge on a sheet of paper and found the blade geometry to slice the paper like a razor.  This same edge was no match for 550 cord, nylon braided and twisted rope, and ½ inch marine grade rope.  The M4X also cut green and dry wood with little to no effort.  The large handle area and top finger cutout allows the user to choke up on the blade and maintain a good level of control over the large blade. 
     The M4X really shined in the chopping tasks.  The included lanyard and handle design allows the knife to be a very effective snap cutter and it had no problem trimming branches and chopping down various sizes of saplings.  When I used a baton, I was able to easily cut down small trees with no negative effect to the edge of the knife.  The tanto like blade edge is also handy in digging tasks which could be helpful in survival and camp situations.  The knife was also used to construct a basic shelter by chopping out notches along logs to secure them together.  The knife is capable of being used as a draw knife with plenty of blade to leverage in order to strip bark off of logs in order to build a shelter.  The design and heft of the M4X will also serve the hunter very well.  This knife will do very well with quartering game by easily chopping through pelvis joints, ligaments, etc. 
     Since the M4X can also be considered a last ditch weapon, I tried the knife on some more unique materials.  I chopped a pineapple, melon, and finally a coconut to see how the M4X would handle something that more represented a living object.  I have to admit; it was a little frightening how easily the M4X destroyed everything I threw at the knife.  I would have no reserve using this knife in a defensive manner. 
     There are very few changes that I would suggest for this design.  While the Shark tooth serrations on my test knife  made good notches in wood, their primary design is as their name suggests. The knife can be had with saw teeth, double sided teeth or plain without serrations. Since my use of the knife was primarilly for camp chores, the plain variation would have increased the top striking area for a baton.  The top notch area is handy for lifting a cooking pot handle in the field, but I also found it destroyed my wooden baton after repeated poundings.  Since this knife thrives in the chopping realm, I would suggest keeping the design as basic as possible
for camp use.  If your using it to fend off pirates....the inverse may be true as the Shark teeth and top hook
could be handy for inflicting no leathal distraction in a personal protection situation. Also for wood, saw teeth would be the better choice, and for all of the above, double sided serrations would work the best. They are less ominous looking, and cut thick rope the best of all.
     The M4X lived up to its extreme namesake.  It outperformed all similarly sized knives that I have tested and easily cut, split, and chopped everything I threw at it.  If you are going out into the wilds and need a top notch field knife, with last ditch weapon capability, then look no further than the new Relentless M4X.

Relentless knives believes in the Protection and Defense of the Constitution of the United States of America

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
