By |November 16th, 2011|Survival News|3 Comments

Phil Rose has quickly become a rising star in the world of custom-made knives. In just 5 years his knives have become so sought after that waiting periods for one can be as long as 8 months. Unlike most custom knives, the demand is not for their flash. I interviewed Mr. Rose in particular because of his PSK series of knives.
