Supporting Advisory Member
President & Founder, Outdoor Edge Cutlery Corp.
Our great nation was founded on freedom for the people. Unfortunately, there are individuals that consider knives to be evil that want to take away and restrict our basic right to own, carry and use the first tool known to mankind. Outdoor Edge supports AKTI as the premier organization which stands up for our knife rights, through education, awareness and legislative action. My love of knives began as a young boy and was influenced by my grandfather, a knife collector and outdoorsman. Outside of my duties designing knives, directing marketing and running the operations for Outdoor Edge, my passions include hunting, fishing, snowboarding, martial arts and time off with family.
