Jason Knight’s passion for knives developed at a young age while growing up in the hinterlands of Charleston, South Carolina. He was inspired as a child by stories that his father read to him by Edgar Rice Boroughs, costumes his mother made him, and backyard adventures through the brush with old knives and machetes. His passion led him to attend the Bill Moran School of Bladesmithing in Old Washington, Arkansas, in 2001, where he trained under Master Bladesmith Jay Hendrickson. Jason turned his childhood passion into a 30-year career in bladesmithing. In 2007, he received his ABS Mastersmith rating along with the B.R. Hughes Award for the best knife by a Mastersmith candidate. His technique and recognizable style have made his blades some of the most sought after in the industry. Jason currently resides in East Tennessee with his wife and two children. Knight Elements is a revolutionary collaboration bringing the experience from world renowned Mastersmith Jason Knight together with the passion of AJ from Tactical Elements. No more worries!

These are Limited Edition handmade coins, made from solid copper, on one side it features the Knight Elements logo and the other side is hammered textured and a smooth rim that features some delicate texture created by structure of the copper as it was stamped with the hammered texture. This heavy copper worry stone feels good in the hand and the pocket. The thick copper coin blank is pre-tumbled, and pressed with a hammered finish. The coloring/patina process is done by hand, and it is both an art and a science so coins will vary slightly. No two are exactly the same!
