WASHINGTON, DC –-( Thanksgiving is not just turkey and pie. It’s an opportunity to let you know that American Knife & Tool Institute ( AKTI ) is grateful for your support.

Our success as the advocacy organization for the knife industry and all knife owners is the result of many people working together to make it happen. We thank everyone who has contacted a legislator, every legislator willing to support repealing or rewriting knife laws, every person who shares a knife with a kid, and every effort to explain knives to those who just don’t get it!

We’d like to spotlight someone who has done an excellent job educating about knives.
