On today's Coffee with Rich, we will be joined by
Allen Elishewitz of Elishewitz Custom Knives and Tactician
Allen spent a good part of his childhood living in
third world countries around Southeast Asia. During that time he
came to appreciate the way people there lived with minimal
infrastructure. This helped shape some of his personality and how
he approaches life and training. Allen has always trained in some
type of combative arts since he was 10 years old. Over several
decades he has had the pleasure of studying and training with some
of the best instructors in their fields. This interest is what
guided him into my current occupation. Allen is a professional
knifemaker who specializes in tactical and defensive blades. Allen
is one of the first knifemakers to start the tactical folder
movement. He operates Elishewitz Custom Knives and Tactician
Concepts with his wife Valerie.
Allen has been interested in knives ever since he
was very young. His martial arts trainings, along with his
experiences as a Recon Marine, gave me the perfect background to
design both defensive and utility knives.
During the time Allen spent at 4th Recon C Company,
he was a Team Leader in charge of a Deep Recon Platoon. Allen
trained in Artillery Call for Fire, Naval Call for Fire, SOTG,
Amphibious Recon and many in-company trainings.
Allen has a Bachelor Degree in Criminal Justice and
an Associate Degree in Fine Arts.
