Upon meeting Jeremy Valdez, our definiton of “American hero” shifted. He epitomizes bravery; after serving 14 years as a Special Forces Green Beret he’s serrved as the vice chief ambassador for the foundation. Further, he’s been recognized with two purple hearts, six bronze stars, one for valor, and the Special Forces Philip Neri award. So when renowned designer Bill Harsey stepped in to help Jeremy realize his longtime dream of designing his own knives, we jumped in to lend a hand. We’re proud to represent him and his breakout design in our Forged By War® program.
