Michael Rodriguez

Location: Fayetteville, North Carolina | Years Designing: 5

Michael R. Rodriguez was one of only two Americans to ever graduate the Irish Army Ranger Wing Sniper Course which he did at the top of his class and he's one of President George W. Bush's advisors. Truly, if we attempted to list the rest of his accolades, we’d run out of ink. His experience as a combat veteran pivoted when he met Ryan Johnson of RMJ Tactical during a recovery period. Then, forging knives and tools became a passion project for him—one that is starkly reflected in his products that we are proud to represent in our Forged By War™ program.
