Gaston J. Glock Style Introduces Knives From Three of Dave Sevigny’s Championship Pistol Barrels

Smyrna, GA – There are many words that spring to mind when discussing the popular “Glock” line of pistols, but “beautiful” and “artistic” are not often among them. Yet that’s exactly what the craftsmen at GASTON J. GLOCK style LP, in conjunction with famed blacksmith Balbach, have produced by hammering three barrels from world champion shooter Dave Sevigny’s Glocks into stunning Damascus-style knives.

These aren’t just any barrels, either. Two of the three barrels were used to win USPSA national championships by Sevigny, and the third is the barrel from his primary practice and training gun during his championship run. The same barrels that were key to his pistol’s reliability and accuracy are now some of the finest knives money can buy. And there are only three. Read more

Knife Rights’ Knife Owners’ Protection Act Re-Introduced

Washington, DC- Knife Rights’ Knife Owners’ Protection Act, H.R.419 (KOPA), was re-introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives yesterday by sponsor Rep. Matt Salmon (R-AZ). Knife Rights Chairman Doug Ritter explained, “KOPA will protect law-abiding knife owners travelling throughout the U.S. from the vagaries of restrictive state and local laws. As long as possession of the particular knife is legal in the state where the journey starts and ends, and provided the knife is secured in accordance with KOPA, a knife owner would no longer be threatened with arrest simply for traveling from one place to another.” KOPA is the first proactive pro-knife federal legislation introduced in the nation’s history.

Additional co-sponsors are: Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) and Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) (more co-sponsors are expected to sign on shortly)

“Those who travel across the country with knives for work, recreation and self defense are presently subject to arrest and prosecution under a confusing patchwork of inconsistent state and local laws and regulations, said Ritter, “what is perfectly legal in one place may be a serious crime in another, resulting in forfeiture of property and carrying significant penalties including jail time. Enforcement is not uniform even within jurisdictions and is subject to the vagaries of political expediency at times. Sportsmen and workmen who travel are particularly vulnerable.” Read more
