You ever wonder when you see photos of what people carry every day, “why do so many people carry a pocket knife?” The answer is different for just about everyone out there, but it all comes back to the idea that a handy pocket knife is a truly indispensable tool in tons of situations.
People use their EDC knife everywhere, whether they're at work (say, opening a new DEFY order and gleefully cutting through our packing tape) or at home (making a quick repair around the house). Having a knife can also potentially save your life in an emergency (cutting a seatbelt) or in a survival situation if you spend time outdoors. (think Grizzly Bears or the Zombie Apocalypse.)
If you're anything like me, I've been carrying a pocket knife since I was 13. I remember getting one from my grandpa and my dad around the same time. I was taught to respect the harm is can cause and appreciate all of the good. I can't tell you how many times in the past few weeks alone I've found uses for this guy. I personally carried and road-tested many knives until I decided on the Kershaw Spline Knife. I love it's non-bulky size in the pocket, it's patented flipper action SpeedSafe assisted opening mechanism and overall sturdy build and aesthetic. It just feels DEFY. It's a good fit in every way. So we decided to reach out and see if they'd partner with us and do some custom engraving. Within a day we heard back and were literally in production within 24 hours! DEFY NOT BEING READY!
