It is important that those of us in the knife community strive to avoid reinforcing myths and misperceptions about knives. To educate, promote, and inform are among the functions of the American Knife & Tool Institute for the benefit of the entire knife community. It behooves all of us to participate as appropriate in this effort.
Edged tools may not be as colorful or as controversial as are edged weapons. An appreciation of our edged weapons is helpful to understanding both our history and our culture.
Thanks to Knife Magazine for supporting AKTI and giving us an opportunity to share important information about knife laws in their monthly publications.
