We get a ton of emails with questions on knives and gear, and being the sharp crew that we are, we figured we would start putting out as much information in this blog as our little brains will allow. Stay tuned here for technical information, how-tos, interviews, reviews, insane rants, and whatever else we can come up with.

Cancelled – Monkey Muster VI 2018

Hey Gang!

Well, we’ll get to the point on this. News and rumors have trickled down the grapevine over the last day or two, so here is the deal: We have had to cancel Monkey Muster VI 2018.

Now most of you know us, and know that we take Monkey Muster and the reasons behind holding it very seriously.

Monkey Muster has a special place in our hearts not only because it is one of the most unique and awesome events in the knife industry (in our opinions, at any rate), but also because the Muster was always built around supporting Fisher House.

Sit down for the next part cause it’s a shocker: the gunmen were an Iranian Arab group that were pissed about things and figured the best way to go about it was to take some civilians hostage and threaten to kill em and stuff. While the Middle East has been on fire for a century, this was bringing the craziness right to London proper. Long story short: the whacky Iranians killed a hostage and the British SAS stormed the building, wasted all but one of the bad dudes, and saved everybody in what was called Operation Nimrod. It was a watershed moment for the SAS and brought this long and storied group into the modern limelight. It also became the spark that ignited the fire of modern special counter terrorism training by the world’s elite forces.

Let me begin by saying: I am not a lawyer and therefore I am not going to pontificate on anything regarding legalities. However, I would contend that you do not need to be a legal expert to arrive at what is ethical and moral. There are many things that are ‘legal’ to do that many of us could agree are not the ‘right’ or ‘ethical’ or ‘stand-up’ thing to do.

I have had many long conversations with may creative people about ideas, designs, intellectual property, ethics etc.
