Ron Lake: The Man behind the Rapid Response Design

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

When we decided to design a new line of folding knives that would blow away the competition in terms of utility and convenience, we naturally turned to one of the most sought-after custom knife makers in the world – who also happens to live right in our backyard.

Ron Lake, a resident of Eugene, Ore., has been making knives for more than 40 years. His creations have earned him media attention, numerous awards and have even ended up in collections at the Smithsonian Institute and other museums. Recently, he applied his genius to designing our Rapid Response hunting knives, whose innovative Blade Assist Technology makes them some of the most impressive folding knives we’ve ever seen.

Rapid Response KnivesOur new Rapid Response knives are making their way around the globe and getting tons of positive feedback – most recently in a feature article in Knife World magazine.

These simple yet elegant folding knives, designed by custom knife maker Ron Lake, are notable primarily for their Blad Assist technology, a system “that’s unlike anything ever made before.” The roller-bearing design reduces friction and allows the knife to spring open smoothly and cleanly with just the nudge of a thumb.

End of the World 2012: Survivalist Guide for Preparation

Monday, April 23rd, 2012

21.12.2012 _DDC4836Dec. 21, 2012: It’s almost here. For some, this date signals nothing more than the final three days of Christmas shopping. To others, however, it’s considered the end of the world. It is the date on which the 5,125-year-long cycle in Mesoamerican Long Count calendar, closely associated with the Mayan Civilization, will end.

Many people interpret that to mean the world as we know it will come to an end, often referring to Mayan and Hopi Native American prophecies about the end of the world. Many major religions insist the world will come to an end at some point, as well, including Christianity, Islam and Judaism (although none of them indicate it might happen this year). Indeed, as the Earth’s North and South poles shift magnetic positions and a growing number of natural disasters continue to plague the planet, there seems to be plenty of evidence that major change is afoot.
