Gear MKT and Monkey Edge – Take 3 David Reeder May 9, 2016 Join the Conversation This new video from Medford Knife & Tool goes through a large number of different fixed and folding blade knives from Medford Knives. All apparently headed out the door shortly to Monkey Edge, MKT's neighbor there in Mesa, AZ, including a TS2 (a design that has been formally discontinued and is rarely seen anymore). It's called “Take 3” because it was the third time Amy Medford tried to accomplish the video — though you could also interpret it to mean you should go pick 3 of them up (your call how you interpret). If you're interested in some of the knives Greg Medford builds there's some great anecdotal information in this overview, plus Amy makes this video far more pleasant to watch than the ones hosted by MKT's knuckle-dragging HMFIC and his prominent supraorbital ridge. Just kidding, Greg. Mostly. Check out the MKT and Monkey Edge video if you have time. The knives are superbly built, handbuilt, overbuilt and gorgeous; Amy is extraordinarily articulate, knowledgeable and gorgeous; Medford Knives is veteran-operated, American made and awesome. That's about all the adjectives and adverbs we can work into this paragraph, but they're all apropos. Deployment series knives and Fieldmasters, Micro-Praetorians, the full sized Marauder, Vulcan, oxide and tumbled blades, smokey-mottled flaming finishes, drop point and Tanto blades..all sorts of knives headed out to Monkey Edge. The standard folding knives ship in a Pelican case with attached information dog tags and a sheet that tells you when the knife was “born” and one of Medford's cards so he can be contacted at need. Fixed blades will come in a zippered case, also with an informational dog tag and contact information. Here's the video. Medford Knife and Tool is online right here.

If you're interested in the story of how MKT and Monkey Edges began their relationship, you can check that out here. The latter company's mission is described quite simply as, “Monkey Edge bringing the good gear to the people with down home goodness!” The former is equally succinct: “100% American Made Tactical, Survival, Hunting and Law Enforcement Knives and Tools for Discerning Professionals.” Explore RECOILweb:Emerson Knives and MultiTasker EDC ToolIncoming: New Products from Issue 42Starter: Thai Style Venison Salad (Larb)Give’r Frontier Mittens NEXT STEP: Download Your Free Target Pack from RECOILFor years, RECOIL magazine has treated its readers to a full-size (sometimes full color!) shooting target tucked into each big issue.
