Hello Mr. Glesser,
Thank you for responding to my letter and post, I understand how busy you must be and really appreciate your time in responding. I'm very excited with the prospect of actually handling, let alone testing a prototype model. (Can't wait to cut myself with it) I've really enjoyed the discussions generated by this topic. All of the guys here are great. To say I'm thrilled would be an understatement.
I've been carrying your knives for twenty years now and would use no other. Your warranty states "Use of your knife for any purpose other than cutting is considered abuse" well I've used them for every other purpose...and sometimes cutting as well. Any damage I've incurred with the knives has been a direct result of my complete disregard of the warranty...and there's always a hell of a story attached to it.
Everytime I break, smash, bend or lose one of your knives, it's replaced the next day. There is no other knife I would trust my life with.
By the way,what do you think of the name I suggested?
"The Primary Responce Unit - P.R.U." named on behalf of all Uniformed Officers.
