"Humans are vulnerable creatures by nature. A willingness to survive, to fight, not flee… is what drove us to create the knife. Knives gave us the ability to become warriors, to conquer fear, and establish ourselves as the dominant species on this planet. It became our responsibility to provide a safe haven for those we love, to protect and sustain what we have worked so hard to build. It is this tool, that gave us the motivation we have, because it gave us the undeniable advantage, the opportunity to dream. This was the first tool humanity mastered. We learned the capability of the knife as we migrated into other realms of human consciousness and cemented our existence on earth. We are all survivalists at heart, and it is the knife that will continue to push humanity to unprecedented heights." - A.J.
