Atlas Dynamic Defense is a knife company from North Carolina who specializes in tactical blades and survival solutions for travelers, hunters, and wilderness explorers. With experience overseas through wartime, the ex-Marine makers of Atlas’ knives have brought home a certain ruggedness that defines these hardcore blades, which is apparent within minutes of seeing and holding each blade. It’s more than quality of material and craftsmanship, it’s the design that speaks most resolute, as each piece that I’m going to test is unique in each their own way, especially the first two designs…
It’s finally summer in Ohio, and the forest is alive with growth and activity. Typically, weather in Ohio is bipolar at best. It’s been a sweltering 90-95 degrees with nearly 100% humidity, then it storms and cools, and before I know what’s happening, the heat is back and the humidity is making life uncomfortable. I have a thing about obscenely hot weather, mainly when the humidity is so high, so I have to wait and gauge the weather a few times a day, as it changes so quickly, so that I can fulfill my mounting desire to roam and explore the natural areas around me. I miss the feel of the cool breeze and the soft morning sun on my face as I trek through forgotten, unmanaged forests. I yearn to feel the peace that time in Nature brings me.

Don't Rush the Whiskers!
You must resist the urge to trim, prune and style your beard for the first four to six weeks. Let your facial hairs grow in evenly and pick a style that suits your face and the thickness of your growth.
When I’m not traveling to explore or see faraway places, I’m camping with friends, or tailgating with family, and we’re grilling out, having a beer, and busting witticisms on each other. There’s just something pure and so thoroughly enjoyable to be outside in the summer sun, surrounded by family and friends, and when the weather rolls into autumn and the greatest game on earth begins its season, I’d choose nowhere else in the world than to be watching the game with my favorite people. For me, it’s the people that make the experience. We’re social creatures and we thrive or die by the positives and negatives of our relationships and social experience. We need it, as much if not more than we need time spent in Nature.
A solid set of outdoor knives can be the difference between life and death when traveling abroad. Why? Because you never know what might happen to you when you’re far from civilization and surrounded by wilderness. A solid knife can help you survive an accident, a storm, as well as an animal attack or starvation, and to travel in the wilds without one is ridiculously foolish. So, when I venture out into the wilderness, I always account for the possibility of hard times, and I am never without a trusted blade.
