The tactical trend for the past 15 or so years has produced some very interesting knives that I have cautiously wielded but has left me unfulfilled and longing for knives of another age and what they represent.
In this age of Trump, pulling out a tactical knife sends all the wrong messages. I reject their militarism and mindless aggression. I choose old school Case and other blades of that era, even if they are now China-made. “Made in America” has been permanently soiled for me by the Trumpanzees.
Confidence, competence, skill and deftness are my values and I want my knife to radiate that.
