The Knife Connection (TKC) Blurs the Line Between Custom and Production with the Architect Field Buddy 5.5

Have you ever wished you could have the type of control over knife features that you get when ordering a custom knife… but pay a production knife price? That is the promise of the TKC Architect series and the first offering in that series – the Field Buddy 5.5.

The Architect Field Buddy 5.5 is available 2 ways from TKC. You can purchase the bare blade on its own or you can use their Knife Builder to customize with your choice of handle scales, sheath options, and more.

The Field Buddy 5.5 is ground from 5/32″ thick 1095 steel. The blade has a high saber ground drop point shape where the point is in line with the handle. The blades are produced by TOPS Knives who knows how to get a lot of performance out of 1095 steel.

The handle shape is shared with the ESEE 6 which allows TKC to offer their massive array of aftermarket ESEE handles to fit the Field Buddy 5.5. The amount of options available is staggering and these handles are very comfortable to use in my experience.

There are a lot more specs and features to see and customize on the TKC Knife Builder. You can also check out the bare blade and all available accessory options at TKC’s Architect product page.


New Colors for the MGL Hot Tamale

Mean Gene Leather’s Hot Tamale was pretty awesome already. Then, they went and did this…

That’s right. The Hot Tamale is now available in a variety of new patterns including Hawaiian prints and Multicam options. The new print options are materials that are laminated over leather so these are still the same bomb-proof Hot Tamale you know and love. The Hawaiian print option is limited, so act fast.


V Seven Weapon Systems Adds Smoke Composites Stock and Grip Option

V Seven Weapon Systems is now offering Smoke Composites’ Ultralight Carbon Fiber Grip and Buttstock as an option on their rifles. The grip weighs in at just 1.14 ounces and the stock at just under 5 ounces. When coupled with V Seven’s already lightweight parts can result in a carbine that tips the scales at 4 pounds, 4 ounces.

The Smoke Composites carbon fiber parts can be added to any V Seven rifle by request or there are pre-built packages like the 14.5″ 556/223 ENLIGHTENED/SMOKE COMPOSITES AR RIFLE available.


Memorial Day 2020

In an effort to keep the meaning of Memorial Day at the forefront of our thoughts, our family sets aside time to do some kind of purposeful remembrance. That could be a visit to a nearby war memorial or a craft and some discussion with our kids.

In a world where Memorial Day is also an anticipated day off from work and a shopping event, I think it is important to refocus my little ones on the deeper meaning that real people sacrificed in real ways in the defense of this nation. I would encourage you and yours to do the same.

We, here at JTT, are thankful for those who “Who more than self their country loved, And mercy more than life!”
