Been a fan on Medford Knives for a while but the prices keep me at bay.
Seriously beefy kit! https://www.medfordknife.com/
Quite a few models I'd like to have with the swift auto currently at the top of the list.
I recently learned they are in Phoenix and have their 'Medford University' which is a series of videos educating consumers & showing the details of what goes into making one of their knives. Everything except coatings are done inhouse including heat treat. Watch the video & take a short quiz then move onto the next video. I thought the video's were pretty interesting! The details and tolerances they use were pretty amazing.
Once you finish the videos & quizzes you're then in the Centurion Club. This supposedly gets you early details on new products or possibly discounts and also invites to events. I was informed their event is once a year and includes shooting, off-roading, and you walk away with a nice knife, for a cost I'm sure. Probably around $1200 but not sure. Don't know any more details but sounds fun to me! https://medforduniversity.com/educatedconsumers/
