Whenever Tom hears someone say, “It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to make a knife,” he’ll quickly correct them. After all, having been involved in the aerospace industry for more than 25 years, he brings a unique perspective to our tools using CAD software and rapid prototyping technology. It has resulted in multi-tools that are a rare combination of artistic form and function, such as the CRKT® Tool, Iota™, Paracord Survival Bracelets, and useful survival bracelet accessories.Designer Bio
