Passion for Blades, by T.M.

Passion for Knives

Hey guys. Just wanted to give you guys a quick story on what knives in general mean to me, and what these knives in particular have done for me. I’m a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom and served as an infantryman. The knives I brought with me where the Spyderco Tenacious combi edge as a multi use tool, and the CRKT Hissatsu as my back up “tatical” fixed blade. The Tenacious was my go to knife for everything from cutting open MRE’s,cutting zip cuffs,cutting 550 cord and also for important things like cutting seat belts of humvee drivers and cutting ACU’s to get to wounds of injured soldiers. Though I never had to use my fix blade thankfully, I know the knife would’ve performed if need be. I still carry the Tenacious to this day and the knife just wont let me down for anything I can reasonably use it for…..I have one other knife that EDC in my civilian life for self-defense purposes. Its Cold Steel’s Talwar XL. Though I’ve never had to use it either, it has actually stopped fights from happening just from the people getting a look at the beast lol. So that’s even better than having to actually use it to defend yourself in my book…That’s just a few reasons why I have a passion for blades and never leave home without one. Take care guys and gals
