Guy Fawkes Day

As we come to this 5th of November many are remembering Guy Fawkes. This year I seem to be noticing more conflicting opinions on the event. Guy Fawkes was a member of a catholic group plotting to kill then King James I. The plot was foiled and Guy Fawkes was the single member caught red handed. Some people condemn the uprising as religious terrorism, while others condone the right of the people to rise up against oppressive governing bodies. How do you remember the 5th?

Official NCO Swords!

ACC has once again been selected by the US Department of Defense as official contractor to the USMC for NCO sabers! All of our military swords are made using state-of-the-art processes in the experienced hands of our expert blade smiths with decades of experience. Each saber is an individually hand crafted work of art. These swords can be purchased in blade sizes 28”, 30”, 32”, 34” to fit you or any individual in the military. The sabers are available now directly from ACC and at select retailers!

Armored clothing.

So there was a bit of talk in the office today about body armor. This dwindled down to accessible civilian armor and then settled at Kevlar hoodies. There are a multitude of offerings for cyclists (both motored and natural) as a damage buffer against accidents. But how practical are they for self defense? After doing a little bit of searching I've come to find that while most vest will protect against knife cuts, they can't protect from serious punctures. I also thought I heard about some that are of a high enough armor class to block 9mm but this has been hard to confirm. Does anyone have experience with these?

Where and what can you carry?

Knife law. It is one tricky subject to try and keep oneself updated on. I have found multiple sites and spoken with several individuals (military, police, knifemakers/manufacturers.) and they all have different views as to what is legal. I won't claim to know, since I'm no lawyer and don't know the legislature. But I can tell you that I've found most knives are legal to carry when accompanied by a carry permit. For the low cost and peace of mind, I recommend getting one vs. taking your chances. Below are a couple of sites I found, tell me what you think!

Dark Knight Vigil

Early this week Leonard B. Robinson of Maryland died in a devastating roadside accident. For those of you unfamiliar with his story Mr. Robinson would spend large amounts of money and personal time dressing up as Batman and visiting sick children in hospitals. From what I understand this was a legitimate (although tragic) accident and no charges where issued. It seems incredibly sad that someone doing such selfless good would meet such an unfortunate end. The official website has not made any mention of recent events but they are still taking donations if you'd like to contribute.  http://superheroesforkids.org/

Pink! Why!?

Can someone explain to me the deal with pink being the go to women's color? Yes, some girls like pink and want everything under the sun to match one color scheme. But in my experience most women do not prefer pink. It makes a very noticeable knife which if you conceal carry is the opposite of ideal. If you're intent is to market to a female market then make the knives reflect that. Go with a lighter weight and build with a quick deploy for smaller hands. Not a 14" bowie with pink scales.
