Three Knives Every Man Should Own

It painted a picture of the type of man I have always secretly  wanted to be: strong, masculine, self-reliant, and able to handle any calamity.

Men today are in many ways lost and unsure of their place in the world. The idea of  being a strong, masculine man is under attack, and a lot of men are unsure of how to  be a man. 

I believe that masculinity is a good thing. My friend Ryan Michler, the founder of the  Order Of Man movement, and the author of the book “Sovereignty” says that we need to  reclaim and restore masculinity. I agree.  

One of the key characteristics of being a masculine man is to be good at using tools. Up  until my 40s, I sucked at using tools, and I was embarrassed by it. I hung around men  who were good at it, and that forced me to raise my standards, and eventually, I  become reasonably good at it, too.  

I got hooked on knives after I watched an ad for Gerber Knives, called “Hello, Trouble.”  That ad spoke to me. It painted a picture of the type of man I have always secretly  wanted to be: strong, masculine, self-reliant, and able to handle any calamity. I ran out  that weekend and bought my first knife. 

My collection is now up to over 60 knives. 

Knives are man’s oldest tool. There’s something primal and very satisfying about  holding a knife in your hand, and using it to perform tasks like cutting open packages,  feather-sticking, or hunting and camping. 

There are 3 knives I think every man should own. 

Zero Tolerance 0562CF Hinderer Design: 

The ZT 0562CF is a fantastic folding knife. It is well-designed and fits very comfortably  in your hand. It’s functional and durable. The manufacturer, Zero Tolerance, is an  American company that makes all its knifes in the US, which is a very good thing, as it  keeps jobs here in America. It’s made of the very best materials and the production  quality is matchless. The price is a bit high, $280 — $300 USD, but it is worth every  penny. It’s a very useful knife to use for tasks around the house, for work or camping.  It’s my go-to knife for every day carry.

The Spartan Blades Harsey Difensa: 

Spartan Blades was founded by two former Green Berets, and makes its knives in North  Carolina. This is a fixed blade, designed by legendary knife designer Bill Harsey. It’s a  very versatile knife, good for outdoors use and very popular among military, law  enforcement and first responders. It’s made of very high end, light-weight steel, and is  beautifully designed and well manufactured. I take it with me whenever I go camping.  It’s pricey, around $400 US, but well worth it. It will last you a lifetime.

The Leatherman Free P4:

Ok, technically, this is a multitool, and not a knife. But everyone should have a multitool  on them at all times. It has so many uses. It have used it to help me deal with a flat tire,  when I needed a screwdriver, scissors, and even a knife. Tim Leatherman invented the  multitool. This is the very best multitool in the world, made in Oregon. Do yourself a  favor, pick one up ASAP. The price is just $140.

The big distinction he makes is that when a conservative is accused we are told to “believe all women,” but when a liberal is accused we are told to “hear all women.”

The Great Con Pt 4: The Racism Con

America is the least racist we have ever been!

Published

on

PolitiCrossing Founder Chris Widener explains the Great Con the left uses to convince races to hate each other so they can be separated into voting blocks. Yet America is the least racist we have ever been!

Mic.com has this to say about a recent survey:

“The study was aimed at discerning a correlation between a country’s level of economic freedom and its racial tolerance. The latter was defined by one simple question, as asked in the World Values Survey: Whom would you not want as a neighbor? Those who selected “people of other races” were categorized as intolerant for the purposes of this investigation. Countries were then ranked by percentage of responses: the fewer “intolerant” respondents, the more tolerant the country. While the Swedish researches found no conclusive results regarding any strong correlation between economic development and tolerance, a recent Washington Post article article went back to the original survey source and compiled a greater sample of data for the purposes of determining other potential relationships between a country and its perceived level of tolerance.

“According to this infographic, the U.S. falls into the most tolerant category, with only 0-4.9% of those surveyed responding that they would not want to live near people of other races. Our neighbor to the north responded in kind, while Mexico ranked in the second-tier of tolerance, making the totality of North America look like a big amalgamation of racial harmony.”
