What do we support and WHY?

Nathan and I support the causes listed below because we want to help educate folks in what it really means to be a knife owner and how to do that in a safe and responsible manner.  I read a comment by someone who said that knife kits are bad and that you can sneak them into prisons and how awful that would be, but then someone replied to their comment and pointed out that plastic eating utensils like a knife are actually sharper, stiffer and can do far more damage, but you see them for sale in every grocery store.  We are in favor of common sense and well reasoned discussions about things like this.  When kids grow up learning to respect things like knives, they tend to be much safer with them as well.  To that end, we would like to share these links with you so that you too can learn more about this subject.

American Knife & Tool Institute - AKTI

www.akti.org

The American Knife & Tool Institute (AKTI) is a non-profit organization (501(c)6) representing all segments of the knife industry and all knife users. Formed in true grassroots fashion by concerned industry leaders after considerable discussion with individual knifemakers, knife magazine publishers, and a broad section of the knife community, AKTI has been the reasonable and responsible voice of the knife community since 1998.

Their mission is to ensure that Americans will always be able to make, buy, sell, own, carry and use knives and edged tools.
