    I've never eaten anything like that. I've never eaten horse meat, oysters, squid, or anything like that, ever. And I never will unless I am starving to death. Even then, I might just go ahead and die...

    Curse you Justin. Knifemakers aren't supposed to talk shit about other knifemakers. Although I guess technically he's not a knife maker? IDK. I'm sure I would get along with him great in person. And his arms look great don't they? but he does not seem to me to know a great deal about what he's talking about.

    I love the training scene near the end...if a guy takes a slow-mo punch at you wearing 12 oz gloves, you duck and then stab them in the neck!

    If you watch many of the recent videos with Karambits, this is a very common practice.

    Many (most?) manufacturers use a standard 3V heat treat that's pretty soft. Nate's 3V definitely has better edge holding than most of these mass manufactured knives, despite them touting the 'super-steels' used.

    Just wasn't sure why he needed boxing gloves if he was pulling the punches and later grappling...

    Have to agree with Nathan. I’m sure that they are sincere in their efforts, and doing things to the best of their knowledge and abilities, and I certainly don’t want talk down about their product, but, in my opinion, CPK’s are next level, in every respect, compared to just about anything else on the market.

    Don’t know the cost of those knives, but if they fill a niche, given their price, design, and materials, then more power to them. I am a bit concerned about the spreading of information that may not be accurate. But then again, that is all over the place in the knife world. Mike

    As a point of reference the knives release today at 5pm, limited to 3000 pieces, limit 1 of each colourway per person, total limit of 3 per person. And they are $395.

    He’s definitely not a knifemaker. He’s a vet who built a really big cult following, he primarily does training and makes tactical products with his market in mind to sell to.

    He’s a good guy, living his dream. I think for a lot of casual people who buy his brand, and follow his methods they will love this shit.

    I have some of his gear, found it’s not worth the hype but I have tons of shit that isn’t.
    I still respect him and catch up from time to time but I’m not on the cool-aid.

    Cause viral marketing is all about catching hype and marketing a product to that niche and making money, then getting into the next trend in time. Timing is everything.
